WATCHMEN: HBO Sets An Official Premiere Date For Damon Lindelof's Upcoming Series

While we've known for quite some time that Watchmen would debut in October, HBO has now officially set a release date for the hotly-awaited series, which has Damon Lindelof attached as producer/writer.

Earlier this week, HBO officially announced that their hotly-awaited Watchmen series would premiere exclusively on the premium network on October 20 at 9:00 p.m. ET.  

The series, which will serve as a sequel of sorts to Alan Moore's original graphic novel, hails from the mind of Damon Lindelof (Lost; The Leftovers), who is attached as a writer and producer.

The freshman season is expected to run for nine episodes.

While plot details have been kept under lock-and-key, the series does boast quite an impressive star cast that will feature Jeremy Irons, Regina King, Jean Smart, Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Adelaide Clemens, Andrew Howard, Tom Mison, Frances Fisher, Jacob Ming-Trent, Sara Vickers, Dylan Schombing, Lily Rose Smith and Adelynn Spoon.

An undisclosed actor has also been cast as Dr. Manhattan, who has seemingly returned to Earth.
