HBO has unveiled the first teaser for its upcoming Watchmen sequel TV series, set to debut this fall.

Here's the teaser, featuring Jeremy Irons' Ozymandias, a legion of Rorschachs, and a glimpse of some new characters:

Here's the official description for Watchmen:

"Originally published by DC Comics in 1986, Watchmen told a decades-spanning saga about masked crime-fighters operating amidst Cold War tensions. Celebrated as one of the most essential entries in the comic book medium, Watchmen inspired a 2009 film from Zack Snyder, and is now the basis for Lindelof's upcoming television series. Unlike Snyder's movie, Lindelof's take on the source material is not designed as a beat-for-beat adaptation. Instead, several years will have passed since the end of the story as told in Moore and Gibbons' comics, with the promise of exploring the ramifications of a world that once suffered a colossal disaster, fueled by one of the smartest minds on the planet: Ozymandias, played in the HBO series by Jeremy Irons. Additional cast includes Regina King, Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Tom Mison and more."

No specific premiere date for Watchmen has been set.
