It’s time to enter the terrifying world of Castle Rock.
The recent releases of Mr Mercedes, IT, Gerald’s Game, The Dark Tower, The Mist and – in the coming weeks – 1922 are proof that in TV and filmmaking terms, 2017 belongs to Stephen King.
Well, it’s time to step into his chilling world because the first trailer for Castle Rock is here and fans of the beloved author are going to be delighted.
The new series will dive deep into the Stephen King multiverse, bringing together many of King’s stories for one epic saga.
As many of you will know, Castle Rock first appeared in King’s 1979 novel The Dead Zone, and has reappeared in a plethora of other books and novellas.
Doctor Sleep, Revival, Cujo, The Dark Half and Needful Things were all set in Castle Rock, while Creepshow, The Stand, Sleepwalkers, Gerald’s Game and even IT reference the town.
J.J Abrams is also involved in a production role and with a cast that includes the likes of Bill Skarsgård, André Holland, Scott Glenn, Sissy Spacek, Terry O’Quinn, Melanie Lynskey and Jane Levy, we’re very excited for this one.
The series is premiering in 2018 and here’s a first look.
