HBO has released a couple new animated promo pics from their upcoming Watchmen series that hint at the show’s dystopian setting. You can see the posts below, which tease what appears to be a fully masked police force. Then images show officers in an ominous uniform yellow mask to go with their standard police gear.

The series comes from Damon Lindelof (Lost, The Leftovers) and is set in the universe of the Alan Moore/Dave Gibbons graphic novel. The logline teases, “Set in an alternate history where “superheroes” are treated as outlaws, WATCHMEN embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel while attempting to break new ground of its own.”

Jeremy Irons, Jean Smart, Regina King, Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Adelaide Clemens, Andrew Howard, Tom Mison, Frances Fisher, Jacob Ming-Trent, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II star in the series, which will debut on HBO next year.
