HBO's 2019 Sizzle Reel — 'Game of Thrones, Euphoria, Watchmen, and Big Little Lies'


added: Sun, Jan 6th '19

HBO has just released a sneak peek preview for their 2019 slate of original TV shows, which includes the very first footage from the much-anticipated eight and final season of the hit fantasy drama "Game of Thrones" and the first look at the much-buzzed-about "Watchmen" series, based on Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' iconic comic book of the same name.

There's also a quick peek at "Euphoria," the upcoming racy teen girl series that stars Zendaya. On top of that, you can also check out the first look at Meryl Streep in Season 2 of the award-winning drama "Big Little Lies."

"Winterfell is yours, your grace," says a begrudged Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) to a slightly smiling Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), as she stands firmly at the side of Jon Snow (Kit Harington). This is the first footage of what we presume is Sansa's first encounter with The Dragon Queen. It also hints to a possible rivalry between the two. Whoa, did Winterfell just got a lot colder?

We also get a quick teaser for Damon Lindelof's much-anticipated adaptation of "Watchmen," featuring Jeremy Irons who is possibly playing Adrian Veidt aka Ozymandias. According to reports, the upcoming superhero series will not be a direct adaptation of the source material or a sequel or prequel, but rather an original reimagining of the ground-breaking comic book. It will depict an original story set within the "Watchmen" universe.

The sizzle reel, which debuted during Sunday night's airing of the Golden Globes, also features first peeks at the upcoming fact-based nuclear meltdown mini-series "Chernobyl" and the forthcoming historical Russian Empress limited series "Catherine the Great" with Helen Mirren in the title role.

"Game of Thrones" is expected to return with its final season in April. Check your local listings for release dates of the other HBO series.
