Today at NY Comic Con, horror fans were treated to the trailer for the upcoming hulu series Castle Rock. The series, which is a collaboration between J.J. Abrams and the legendary Stephen King, centers around the small town of Castle Rock and sees many of King’s “universes” crossing over and colliding.
While the trailer is mysterious and intriguing, it does not reveal many plot details. At today’s NYCC panel, Castle Rock stars Sissy Spacek, Andres Holland, Melanie Lynskey, and hot on the heels from his turn as Pennywise in IT, Bill Skarsgard, kept many of the plot details under wrap. According to Deadline, it was revealed that each would be playing new characters to the Stephen King world. Spacek, who starred in King’s iconic film Carrie noted, “I was afraid I might never have the opportunity to do something this twisted again. It’s kind of an homage to Stephen King — and I owe Stephen King a lot.”
Castle Rock will be produced by Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television and is set to premiere on hulu in 2018.
