Fresh from their collaboration on 11/22/63, J.J. Abrams and Hulu are set for a return to the world of Stephen King, this time for an anthology series entitled Castle Rock, which of course takes its name from the fictional Maine town that appears in many of King’s novels.
The news was revealed with the release of an announcement trailer; check it out here…
According to THR, Castle Rock is being written and executive produced by Sam Shaw (Manhattan) and is said to “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.”
Castle Rock first appeared in 1979’s The Dead Zone, and has since served as the setting for the likes of Cujo, The Body, The Dark Half and Needful Things, as well as being referenced in many more of King’s works.
