J.J. Abrams and Stephen King are teaming up again to give us another Hulu limited series! The two previously developed the Hulu series 11.22.63 and it was one of my favorite series last year.
The new series is called Castle Rock, which is the iconic fictional town located in Maine that serves as the setting for a several of the stories that King tells. The series is being written by Manhattan creator Sam Shaw and Dusty Thomason. According to THR:
The anthology will weave together characters and themes from those novels that use the Castle Rock location. Each season will follow a different set of characters and storylines while interjecting themes and specific characters from previous seasons.
As a long-time fan of King and his work, I couldn't be more excited about this series! After seeing what Abrams and King did with 11.22.63, I know this Castle Rock series is going to be incredible.
We even have a promo teaser to share with you that should get Stephen King fans excited for what's to come. It weaves together stories and characters like Salem's Lot, Needful Things, Shawshank State Prison, Annie Wilkes, Pennywise, and Danny Torrance. Check it out!
