HBO’s Watchmen has got to be one of the best (if not the best) superhero TV shows to ever grace our screens. It’s incredibly current and has a lot of layers that have made a passionate viewer base to tune in every week. From Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, Watchmen Season One is available right now on Digital.
The finale of the first season aired yesterday and, of course, fans want more. There’s no news, as of writing this, about the show coming back for a second season. I urge you all to show some support for this incredible series. Maybe the interest in the Digital release will make HBO renew Watchmen for a second outing?
Watchmen Season One is available on Digital for $34.99 HD and $24.99 in SD (that’s CAD $39.99 HD and CAD $29.99 in SD). According to the press release, during the premiere, Watchmen was able to draw 1.5 million viewers, becoming the second-highest rated HBO original series debut of the past three years, only behind Big Little Lies.
The Digital release includes all nine episodes from the first season along with more than 75 minutes of bonus content (including nearly 60 minutes of never-before-seen features).
Here’s the description:
Set in an alternate history where “superheroes” 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 is created and executive produced by Damon Lindelof (Lost, The Leftovers) and reunites him with Academy® and Emmy® Award-winning actress Regina King (The Leftovers, Southland, If Beale Street Could Talk) leading the cast as Angela Abar/Sister Night. The series also stars Emmy® Award winner Jean Smart (Legion, Dirty John), Don Johnson (Miami Vice), Tim Blake Nelson (O Brother, Where Art Thou?, Leaves of Grass), Hong Chau (Homecoming), Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Aquaman), Andrew Howard (Bates Motel), Jacob Ming-Trent (Ray Donovan), Tom Mison (Sleepy Hollow), Sara Vickers (The Crown) and Dylan Schombing (Sharp Objects), with Academy Award® winner Louis Gossett Jr. (An Officer and a Gentleman), and Academy, Emmy® and Tony® Award winning actor Jeremy Irons (The Lion King, Reversal of Fortune) .
Produced for HBO by White Rabbit in association with Warner Bros. Television, the series was created for television by Lindelof based on characters co-created for DC by Dave Gibbons. The series is executive produced by Lindelof, Tom Spezialy, Nicole Kassell, Stephen Williams and Joseph E. Iberti.
“There has been an overwhelming reception of Watchmen’s debut season from both fans and critics alike, beginning with the very first episode to last night’s finale,” said Rosemary Markson, Senior Vice President Marketing, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. “This is a true testament to the creators, producers and actors behind the series and we are thrilled to release Season One immediately on digital beginning today.”
For those wondering, Watchmen: The Complete First Season will also be released on Blu-ray and DVD in 2020. And yes, there’s some important and well-written queer representation in this series. So, give it a try.
