A pair of new Instagram posts on the official account for HBO's Watchmen TV show seem to elaborate on the cryptic image shared earlier this year.

The two motion images (seen below) seem to show police officers clad in yellow head-to-toe bodysuits beneath their uniforms, and bear the captions "Masks save lives" and "Hiding in plain sight" respectively.

It appears the series will normalize the idea of anonymity in law enforcement by bringing it to the police rather than leaving masked crimefighting to superheroes.

Watchmen - an apparent indirect sequel to the comic book - is currently in production for a planned 2019 release.
