So I'm a nut for Stephen King's work and I'm really excited for the show Castle Rock on Hulu. The show is being executive produced by King and by superstar director J.J. Abrams, and the show has already arrived to rave reviews.
The show is a slowly unfolding dark mystery series that interweaves references to King's novels and is set in his fictional town of Castle Rock. There's murder, madness, morbidity, and general merriment!
Let's start this party off with the official trailer, courtesy of Hulu.
Pretty cool, right? The trailer features Bill Skarsgard, who played Pennywise in the recent smash horror hit It. He was present at San Diego Comic Con doing promotions for It's sequel and for Castle Rock. Entertainment tonight caught up with him after the panel and he talks about the show and his career in horror.
Moving away from the actors, Castle Rock has been the setting of many Stephen King narratives. It's imagined as a dark and doom-shrouded Maine town where sinister secrets lurk behind every closed door. It's an iconic part of King lore and Hulu created a documentary searching through Stephen King's life for the inspiration behind the town.
Finally, for you hardcore fans out there, here's a guide to some of the Easter Eggs found in the show. Check it out but beware yon spoilers!
