Subscribe to Q97.9 on

Lest you think Stephen King content to limit his TV universe to Hulu’s 11.22.63, the ever-prolific author is about to open a much bigger wormhole on the streaming service. Not only is King re-teaming with Hulu and J.J. Abrams for a new anthology series, but the new Castle Rock will bring together a number of King’s iconic stories with one shared location.

King himself confirmed the news over Twitter with a brief teaser, connecting the many threads of his work into the Castle Rock location. Per The Hollywood Reporter, each season will feature different characters and storylines, but connect with certain themes and characters from previous years, while Manhattan alum Sam Shaw and Dusty Thomason will helm the Bad Robot project.

For those unfamiliar with King’s stories, Castle Rock represents the fictional Maine town where many of the author’s works have been set, including The Dead Zone, Cujo, The Body and more. References to the town can also be found in Creepshow, The Shawshank Redemption, Pet Sematary, It, The Stand, Under the Dome, 11/22/63 and others.

Few details have been confirmed for now, but check out the teaser above, and stay tuned for more on King and Hulu’s Castle Rock anthology.
