Ready or not, here it comes. Not too long ago, we learned that the beloved graphic novel, Watchmen, which had already received a pretty faithful adaptation from filmmaker Zack Snyder, would be up for another adaptation. Instead of a film, however, it’d come in the form of an HBO TV series from the love-him-or-hate-him Damon Lindelof.

Of course, Hollywood has more than its fair share of projects that never get off the ground, and until something films, there’s always a chance that it’ll fall through. Given how big the investments are, it’s almost safer to assume nothing will happen until it’s here.

Well, it sounds like we’re one step closer to seeing a new Watchmen show. According to the kind folks over at ThatHashtagShow, HBO is moving forward with the pilot, and that filming will be beginning in March of 2018 — meaning in a few short months.

Does this mean the whole series is a go? As of right now, no. The pilot could be a disaster, and it could still not get ordered to a full series, but we’d be surprised if that happened, especially given how strong the source material is, and how beloved it is by fans.

Are you excited to see this series get one step closer to fruition? Let us know your thoughts down below!

    …. sigh, I don’t know, like the whole comics Before Watchmen has been over 5 years ago, and then on top of that Darwynn Cooke’s been dead for over a year he’d be the best guy to be creative lead. I guess, shrug

    Ugh. The Director’s Cut of the “Watchmen” film, in my opinion, was virtually perfect and one of my favorite movies ever in the superhero genre. I guess what I’m asking is why is this necessary? The Watchmen film was 2009 that’s only eight years ago. Reboot it in 20 more, not now.
