Now everybody can watch the Watchmen.
HBO’s acclaimed series will stream for free online starting Friday, June 19.
There’s just one catch: Y0u’ll need to watch all nine episodes of the show by Sunday, June 21.
Watchmen will be up on HBO.com as well as free via on-demand platforms “as an extension of the network’s content offering highlighting Black experiences, voices and storytellers … HBO is proud to offer all nine episodes for free of this timely, poignant series that explores the legacy of systemic racism in America.” The network will also air a marathon of the series on HBO and HBO Latino starting at 1:00 p.m. on Friday.
Seeing the episodes for free won’t feel like you’re only getting the beginning of a story, either. The HBO show was originally billed as the first season of a new drama series, but the storyline ended up feeling surprisingly conclusive — both to viewers and to Lindelof, who has said he doesn’t think he’ll make another season (HBO could eventually decide to make another season with another showrunner, however).
