2017 has been a big Stephen King year so far, with It, especially, a massive box office success.
The latest to take inspiration from the author is Hulu’s upcoming series Castle Rock. The show takes place in the titular, fictional Maine town, which first appeared in his book The Dead Zone. From producers Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason, the show will include Easter eggs from King’s many works, bringing some of his most beloved stories together.
One of the most notable references in the first teaser is to the Shawshank Penitentiary. But fans of King will also recognize a few familiar faces. Sissy Spacek and Bill Skarsgård both appear in the first promo, but they unfortunately do not play Carrie White or Pennywise. Melanie Lynskey also makes an appearance, who some might remember in the 2002 miniseries Rose Red.
Castle Rock premieres on Hulu in 2018.
