Damon Lindelof (creator of LOST and The Leftovers) is behind this new version of Watchmen which will be an original story and not an adaptation of the classic graphic novel by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbon. The show will have entirely new characters that were not in the original story.

So far, the cast includes Hong Chau, Jeremy Irons (Justice League) as an older Ozymandias, Regina King (The Leftovers), Don Johnson (Django Unchained), Louis Gossett Jr. (Hap and Leonard), Tim Blake Nelson (Colossal), Adelaide Clemens (Rectify), Andrew Howard (Bates Motel), Frances Fisher (Masters of Sex), Jacob Ming-Trent (White Famous), Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (The Handmaid’s Tale), Sara Vickers (The Crown), Tom Mison (Sleepy Hollow), Jean Smart (Fargo) as a mysterious FBI agent, and James Wolk (ZooTell Me a Story).

The show will premiere sometime this year.
