Before shared universes were the cool thing, Stephen King was subtly connecting his novels with an underlying mythology. It’s a bit surprising to me that it’s taken this long for a network or studio to come along and actually execute a similar vision for the small screen. Such is the case with Hulu’s Castle Rock.

It’s a very cool concept, and those Stephen King readers who know the more obscure novellas and short stories will likely be happy with the way this series is turning out, based on the eerie new teaser trailer, which teases the Original Sin of the city of Castle Rock.

Below is the official synopsis for Castle Rock:

“A psychological-horror series set in the Stephen King multiverse, Castle Rock combines the mythological scale and intimate character storytelling of King’s best-loved works, weaving an epic saga of darkness and light, played out on a few square miles of Maine woodland. The fictional Maine town of Castle Rock has figured prominently in King’s literary career: Cujo, The Dark Half, IT and Needful Things, as well as novella The Body and numerous short stories such as “Rita Hayworth” and “The Shawshank Redemption” are either set there or contain references to Castle Rock. Castle Rock is an original suspense/thriller — a first-of-its-kind reimagining that explores the themes and worlds uniting the entire King canon, while brushing up against some of his most iconic and beloved stories.”
