Showrunner Damon Lindelof (The Hunt, The Leftovers, Lost, World War Z) has made it clear that he won’t return to the world of Watchmen for a second season of the award-winning HBO program. But that has not stopped the cast from acting like heroes. They have created and posted a new Public Service Announcement called, wait for it – Washmen.

Cast members Regina King, Tim Blake Nelson, Jean Smart and Yahya Abdul Matteen-II give in-character tutorials on how to properly wash your hands, and how important doing such a thing is to prevent the spread of COVID-19 virus.

Notably missing is Jeremy Irons’ Ozymandias. The Reel 306 team is pretty sure Veidt would have been under self-quarantine on Europa. Watch below and wash your hands for 20 seconds.
