Hulu's Castle Rock — Official Trailer


added: Tue, Jul 10th '18

Welcome to Castle Rock. It's a small sleepy town in Maine, where "every inch is stained with someone's sin!"

Check out the new official trailer for Hulu's much-buzzed-about horror-mystery series from executive producers J.J. Abrams and Stephen King, which is taking place in the author's famous fictional town of Castle Rock, Maine.

Inspired by some of King's most popular horror stories (Cujo, The Dark Half, IT, Needful Things, The Shawshank Redemption, etc.), the ten-episode streaming series is being set up as a Stephen King multiverse, and will feature several of his literary characters as if they all have been residing in Castle Rock at roughly the same time.

Created by the writing and producing team of Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason (Manhattan), the Hulu series features a top-notch ensemble cast that includes Oscar winner Sissy Spacek, Andre Holland (Moonlight), Bill Skarsgard (IT), Jane Levy (Don't Breathe), Scott Glenn (The Leftovers), Melanie Lynskey (Togetherness), and Terry O'Quinn (Lost).

Hulu is planning to premiere the first three episodes of "Castle Rock" on Wednesday, July 25th, and then will roll out new episodes on a weekly basis.

A psychological-horror series set in the Stephen King multiverse, Castle Rock combines the mythological scale and intimate character storytelling of King's best-loved works, weaving an epic saga of darkness and light, played out on a few square miles of Maine woodland.

The fictional Maine town of Castle Rock has figured prominently in King's literary career: Cujo, The Dark Half, IT and Needful Things, as well as novella The Body and numerous short stories such as Rita Hayworth and The Shawshank Redemption are either set there or contain references to Castle Rock. Castle Rock is an original suspense/thriller -- a first-of-its-kind reimagining that explores the themes and worlds uniting the entire King canon, while brushing up against some of his most iconic and beloved stories.
