HBO Offers All Episodes of Watchmen for Free on Juneteenth

This year, HBO is offering non-subscribing fans the chance to celebrate Juneteenth by binge-watching Watchmen. All nine episodes of the series will be streamed for free on HBO.com and Free On Demand starting June 19 through Sunday, June 21. The television network announced its initiative as “an extension of the network’s content offering highlighting Black experiences, voices and storytellers,” as stated in a press release. HBO will also air a Watchmen marathon on HBO and HBO Latino starting at 1:00 p.m. ET/PT on June 19.

Also known as Juneteenth, that date commemorates the proclamation of freedom for all slaves in the U.S. state of Texas on June 19th, 1865.

Both fans and critics alike received Watchmen positively when the show debuted back in late 2019. The TV series by Damon Lindelof was an in-continuity sequel to Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons landmark ’80s comic miniseries. Set in the present, it had a strong focus on race relations and the origins of masked vigilantism in America. Much to many fans’ disappointment, HBO has not signaled any plans for a sophomore season. Still, attention to this show remains high, thanks also to the fact that the series has recently won a Peabody Award.

HBO is also offering many other free shows this weekend. The titles include Being Serena, Bessie, Whoopi Goldberg presents Moms Mabley, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, United Skates, Jerrod Carmicheal’s Home Videos, Lil’ Rel Live In Crenshaw, The Apollo, and some episodes from the series The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency (S1/ E1), The Shop (S2/E1 + S2/E6), as well as Treme (S1/E1), and the premiere of True Detective Season 3.
