HBO Will Stream 'Watchmen' For Free This Weekend In Honor of Juneteenth

HBO has made its acclaimed series, Watchmen, free to watch for the entire weekend!

The network released a statement about the special airing, which started today (June 19) and will go through to Sunday, June 21 on HBO.com and Free On Demand.

“HBO is proud to offer all nine episodes for free of this timely, poignant series that explores the legacy of systemic racism in America,” the release read.

Set in an alternate history where masked vigilantes are treated as outlaws, Watchmen embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel of the same name, while attempting to break new ground of its own.

Watchmen joins a few other movies that are free to rent for the month, including Selma and Just Mercy, which can educate on systemic racism in the country.

Starring Regina King, Watchmen may or may not have additional seasons coming. See what the showrunner shared here…

HBO to Reclassify 'Watchmen' as Limited Series, Future Editions Are Possible

HBO has made the decision to reclassify its series Watchmen to a limited series moving forward.

The network has announced that season one of the hit show will no longer compete as a “drama series” at awards shows and instead will be considered a “limited series.” This includes “any possible future installments” as well.

“We discussed with the producers and felt limited series was the most accurate representation of the show and any possible future installments,” the network said in a statement (via Variety).

Executive producer and showrunner Damon Lindelof basically shot down any hope for future seasons in previous interviews, but he has hinted that there’s still a chance he’d return for more installments.

'Watchmen' Season 2 Is Almost Definitely Not Happening; HBO Exec Explains Why

Watchmen was one of the best-reviewed new shows of 2019, but fans hoping to get more episodes will be disappointed to find out that a second season will almost definitely not happen.

Damon Lindelof, the creator of the series, has expressed that he’s not interested in returning for a second season and HBO is not interested in making more seasons without him.

“It’s really in Damon’s thinking about what he wants to do. If there’s an idea that excited him about another season, another installment, maybe like a Fargo, True Detective (anthology) take on it, or if he wants to do something different altogether. We’re very proud of Watchmen, but what I’m most interested in what Damon wants to do,” HBO programming chief Casey Bloys told USA Today.

Damon has said he gave his blessing to HBO to pursue future seasons, but it sounds like that won’t happen without him.

Bloys added, “It would be hard to imagine doing it without Damon involved in some way.”

Also joining the cast are Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Adelaide Clemens, and Andrew Howard, according to Variety. No details about the characters have been announced yet.

Lindelof took to Instagram this week to tell fans about his vision for the series. It will not be a re-telling of the graphic novel, but instead tell a new story with new characters existing in the same universe.

“Some of the characters will be unknown,” he said. “New faces. New masks to cover them. We also intend to revisit the past century of Costumed Adventuring through a surprising yet familiar set of eyes…and it is here we will be taking our greatest risks.”
