‘The Watch’ is a new series based on characters from the late author Tery Pratchett‘s ‘Discworld‘- novels. The show will start off with an eight parts first season. Because there’s a lot of lore, interesting characters, stories and humor, fans are hoping more will come.

However, both IMDb and the Youtube video description state that this project is “inspired” or “based” on characters created by Sir Tery Pratchett. In other words: it may not be a storyline or a faithful adaptation of his works BUT as a casual fantasy- fan I’d still be excited.

If it resonates with the audience, there’s no doubt there will be more.

Premieres Sunday, January 3rd on BBC America or stream it on AMC+.
