Stephen King is known for writing terrifying thrillers that you probably don’t want to read before going to bed. Within the last few years, we’ve seen an increase of his stories continuing to be adapted for movies and TV series such as the box-office success IT and Netflix’s Gerald’s Game.
Castle Rock is the next Stephen King thriller to be adapted for the screen and will be streaming on Hulu — which just released the trailer for the series on Monday. The trailer doesn’t give much detail on the plot of the show and according to Deadline, the series won’t be a direct adaptation of King’s novel. Instead, each season will be an original story using characters, themes and events from the fictional New England town of Castle Rock. Characters and themes from other King novels are said to make an appearance on the show as well.
“I was afraid I might never have the opportunity to do something this twisted again,” said Sissy Spacek, cast member for the series at a panel at Comic-con. “It’s kind of an homage to Stephen King — and I owe Stephen King a lot.”
This isn’t the first time Hulu has taken on adapting the suspenseful writing of Stephen King. In early 2016, Hulu premiered the 8-episode mini-series 11/22/63, about a man who goes back in time in attempts to prevent the assassination of John F. Kennedy. A release date for the Castle Rock series has yet to be announced, but it is expected to release sometime in 2018.
