Watchmen Season 1 is heading to DVD and Blu-ray in June 2020. However, the series is being promoted as an HBO limited series.

We’ve had plenty of questions about the future of Watchmen. It wasn’t quite a self-contained story with the way it ended. There are many out there who would love to see a second season. However, the Watchmen Season 1 DVD release, set for June 2020, has suggested there isn’t any more of the series.

Promoted as Watchmen: An HBO Limited Series, the DVD and Blu-ray will be released on June 2, 2020. It’s telling that it will be released as a limited series. While there were discussions of the show landing a second season, it looks like the final decision has been made. After all, Big Little Lies was never released as a limited series when it made it to DVD and Blu-ray.

In a way, the reclassification shouldn’t be all that surprising. Creator Damon Lindelof stepped down as showrunner after the first season, saying that he’d done what he intended to do and never intended to create a second season. HBO decided not to find another showrunner.

That being said, you can now pre-order Watchmen Season 1 on DVD and Blu-ray right now. You’ll get it with the Price Guarantee when pre-ordering on Amazon, so you only pay the lowest that the price drops to up to the release date.

Don’t want to wait for June? You don’t need to have a HBO subscription to enjoy the series. It is available to buy on Amazon Video, so you can stream it whenever you want for the one payment.

Watchmen is set in an alternate world where the U.S. won the Vietnam War and presidents can run for more than two terms. The series is a sequel to the comics, set 34 years into the future, but you don’t need to know the comics to appreciate the series.
