First Trailer Hits For Hulu’s Stephen King Series Castle Rock

It’s certainly been quite the year for Stephen King, but don’t think that just because 2017 is drawing to a close that the horrors will be stopping any time soon.

At this year’s New York Comic-Con, Hulu dropped a first look at the series, Castle Rock, which delves into the worlds of various Stephen King novels and short stories.

General audiences may only see a cascade of slow horror imagery, but fans of his work will notice a bit more than that. Perhaps the most blatant thing we noticed was the Shawshank Department of Corrections vehicle that was sinking into the water.

Okay, some of you may still be a bit confused about what this series actually pulls from, so I’ll give you the basic rundown.

For those are unfamiliar, there are some very loose connections between some of the works of Stephen King. For example, the Man in Black in the Dark Tower series is none other than Randal Flagg from The Stand, and the town of Castle Rock is one that pops up in nearly a dozen of his stories. Castle Rock will be using many of King’s stories as a basis, and will connect the characters and themes to create one 10-episode season of TV.

Will it work? We’ll have to wait and see, but this initial teaser is certainly intriguing.

Castle Rock hits Hulu next year.
