During the 2019 Golden Globes, HBO aired a commercial highlighting its upcoming slate of 2019 programming and offering up a short tease of its upcoming live-action Watchmen series.
The teaser also included some new footage that included a major moment from the upcoming final season of Game of Thrones.

Though the teaser was incredibly brief, it showed us a look at Jeremy Irons' Watchmen character, who is reportedly an older version of Ozymandias, saying that "The journey's just begun."
The teaser also includes a quick shot of Jean Smart's character driving towards a desolate house guarded by masked individuals. Other quick shots reveal armed individuals wearing yellow bodysuits, masked vigilantes and another masked figure who could be a version of iconic antihero Rorschach. The series, which features Lost producer Damon Lindelof as showrunner, also stars Tom Mison, Regina King and Aquaman's Yahya Abdul-Mateen II.
Whereas Zack Snyder's 2009 Watchmen film was a direct adaptation of the comic book by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons, the show is said to embrace the nostalgia of the original series while carving a new path for itself. Lindelof has made no secret of his affection for the series, announcing his involvement with the series in a passionate Instagram post.
Along with Watchmen, the promo also revealed new footage from the final season of Game of Thrones. In the quick clip, Sophie Turner's Sansa Stark meets Emilia Clarke's Daenarys Targaryen as she arrives at Winterfell and gives her control of her family's ancestral land while Kit Harrington's Jon Snow and Gwendoline Christie's Brienne of Tarth look on.
In addition to those two shows, the teaser also showed footage from other new and returning HBO series like Euphoria, Big Little Lies, True Detective and Divorce.
Developed by Damon Lindelof, HBO's Watchmen stars Jeremy Irons, Regina King, Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Tom Mison, James Wolk, Adelaide Clemens, Andrew Howard, Frances Fisher, Jacob Ming-Trent, Sara Vickers, Dylan Schombing, Lily Rose Smith and Adelynn Spoon. The series is expected to premiere on HBO sometime in 2019.
Game of Thrones will return for its eighth and final season in April 2019. The HBO drama stars Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Jaime Lannister, Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister, Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen and Kit Harington as Jon Snow.
