After “The Leftovers’” series finale in 2017, there were a lot of questions about what Damon Lindelof’s next TV project would be. Prior to “The Leftovers,” he’d done “Lost,” a series that’s finale had received — and to this day, still receives — a far different response than the universally-praised conclusion to the latter series. But with the goodwill garnered from “The Leftovers” and its critically-acclaimed three-season run came the eager anticipation of his next project.

And that next project just so happens to be another ambitious one, as it’s HBO’s upcoming adaptation of the “Watchmen” series of comics. With HBO’s “Watchmen” set to premiere on October 20, IndieWire has compiled a list of the eight must-know details about the upcoming series.
