The perfect time to renew “The Watchmen” is now. The show is currently canceled but heads has turned since the death of George Floyd. The HBO show also received a prestigious Peabody Award earlier this week.
The show takes place in Tulsa, Oklahoma, reenacting the Tulsa riot, which played a role in the show’s narrative. Watchmen also add a hero to bring forth the comic book approach.
The program’s creator Damon Lindelof, said when he learned of Tulsa he was ashamed and felt guilt. Lindelof assembled a racially diverse writing staff, but admitted when the show made its debut that he was nervous about how its approach to race would be received.
