Watchmen is inspired by the novel by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons, and this series is a sequence of that story set years after the events in the original story.
The series is set in an alternate timeline where masked vigilantes are outlaws. It contains the nostalgia of the original brilliant graphic novel of the same name while attempting to get its own spin on the story.
The cast includes Regina King, Jeremy Irons, Don Johnson, Jean Smart, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Hong Chau, Andrew Howard, Tom Mison, Frances Fisher, Jacob Ming-Trent, Sara Vickers, Dylan Schombing, James Wolk, and Robert Redford as President of the United States.
