HBO Unveils First Look at WATCHMEN, Plus GAME OF THRONES Season 8

Debuting during the 2019 Golden Globes presentation, HBO released a new video advertising its 2019 slate.

Among those snippets shown (which included Veep, Big Little Lies, Euphoria and more) was a first look at Watchmen, and also at Game of Thrones‘ final season.

Watchmen is a contemporary take on Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ dark superhero comic book series, adapted for HBO by The Leftovers‘ Damon Lindelof. The new series promises to include “a few” familiar faces, along with a collection of wholly new characters. 

HBO has yet to announce a premiere date for the series.

Meanwhile, the Game of Thrones season 8 clip offers an interesting dialogue tease in the form of Sansa Stark greeting Daenerys and Jon in Winterfell, and basically handing her the reins (or should that be reigns?) with an agreeable “Winterfell is yours, your Grace.”

We hope you know what you’re doing, Sansa.

Game of Thrones returns to HBO on 14 April 2019.
