Stephen King is one of the most prolific writers working today having sold over 350 million copies of his books, many of which have been adapted for movies and television. King’s works are usually a mix of horror, suspense, sci-fi and fantasy with supernatural elements. Teaming up with J.J. Abrams, Stephen King is bringing about a new anthology series called Castle Rock which will bring together character and themes from many of his previous work. Posting via his Bad Robot production company twitter account, J.J. Abrams tweeted a link to a teaser trailer:

Castle Rock is a fictional location in Maine and is featured in many of King’s work including The Dead Zone, Cujo, Mrs. Todd’s Shortcut, The Dark Half, The Body, Uncle Otto’s Truck, The Sun Dog, Needful Things and It Grows on You. The teaser trailer also showed references to some of King’s most beloved works adopted to movies including Shawshank Redemption, Misery, The Shining and more. The teaser is implying that Castle Rock is the constant thread across all these works and will be the setting of the anthology series.

Although some writers have noted that it has a ‘Stranger Things’ vibe and thinks that this work is a response to that series’ success which in itself draws heavily from Stephen King’s ouvre, the fact that Castle Rock is an anthology series taking place in one location makes it closer to ‘Eerie, Indiana’ which was a short-lived TV series from 1991.

Castle Rock will be available on Hulu just like Stephen King and J.J. Abrams previous team-up effort 11.22.63. No further information is currently available in terms of episode count or premiere date.
