It’s only been a few weeks since the excellent series finale of Damon Lindelof’s The Leftovers left us all reeling and wondering what he’d be working on next. According to a new report, the showrunner is staying with HBO, where he’s developing a new live action Watchmen series.

As Variety points out, this will be the second time that HBO’s tried to kickstart a Watchmen series after a similar project failed to get off the ground back in 2014. Currently, no information has been made available about the new series’ production other than the fact that it’s an entirely new project separate from HBO’s previous attempt. It will also be completely separate from Zach Snyder’s 2009 adaptation of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ acclaimed comic.

Why? For the love of all that is good, why go back to this well? DC’s done it. Hell, they’re still doing it. Can’t we just leave well enough alone and, I dunno, maybe use a different Alan Moore vehicle? You know, one that might have the best chance to work on television?
