Viewers can't stop talking about yesterday's exhilarating Watchmen season finale. Starting today, those viewers - along with new fans - can relive all of the excitement of HBO's new #1 scripted series as Warner Bros. Home Entertainment brings Watchmen Season 1 to Digital for the first time today for $34.99 Retail in HD and $24.99 Retail on SD (in Canada $39.99 Retail HD and $29.99 Retail SD). In its series premiere, Watchmen drew 1.5 million Viewers, becoming the second-highest rated HBO original series debut of the past three years, only behind Big Little Lies. Currently "certified fresh" with a 97% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, the digital release of Watchmen Season 1 includes all nine episodes plus over 75 minutes of bonus content, including nearly 60 minutes of never-before-seen features.
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, something fans knew from the very first Watchmen trailer. 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) .
"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."
