The official Watchmen Instagram account from HBO has released a new sneak peek image from Damon Lindelof's upcoming graphic novel series adaptation.

Based on the Alan Moore graphic novel, Watchmen is set in an alternate history where “superheroes” are treated as outlaws. And while Lindelof plans to embrace the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel, the series will also attempt to break new ground of its own. He announced his intentions earlier this spring on Instagram.

Oscar-winner Jeremy Irons (Reversal of Fortune) is the latest actor to join the cast. You can also expect to see Regina King (The Leftovers); Golden Globe-winner Don Johnson (Miami Vice); Tom Mison (Sleepy Hollow); Frances Fisher (Titanic); Jacob Ming-Trent (Superfly); Tim Blake Nelson (Lincoln, HBO’s Warm Springs); Oscar-winner Louis Gossett Jr. (An Officer and a Gentleman); Andrew Howard (The Brave, Boardwalk Empire); Yahya Abdul-Matteen II (First Match), and Sara Vickers (Endeavor).  Also joining the cast are young actors Dylan Schombing (Sharp Objects, Girlfriend's Guide to Divorce), Lily Rose Smith (The Vampire Diaries), and Adelynn Spoon.

Nine Inch Nails musicians Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross (who first worked together as film composers on The Social Network) will be creating the original music for the series.

Lindelof, who will be a writer on the show, will also serve as an executive producer, alongside Nicole Kassell and Tom Spezialy. Kassell is slated to direct the pilot episode. Additional executive producers are director Stephen Williams and Joseph Iberti. The series is produced for HBO by White Rabbit in association with Warner Bros. Television, based on characters from DC.

I’m really looking forward to this series... The Watchmen movie was my first official introduction to the property. And I loved the hell out of it. I’ve since paged through, but not fully read the original novel. One of these days, I will.

^ I feel like ‘god’ is the last thing that would exist, lest be an excuse for anything, in the Watchmen universe... Unless we’re talking about Dr. Manhattan. And we know that he was effectively just a pawn, in all of that.

I have read the original graphic novel and the movie and enjoyed them both to a certain degree, so there's a part of me that's looking forward to this series. I'll remain cautiously optimistic but I'm not familiar with this guy's work at least on TV.
