Shedding more light on its eclectic cast of characters (including Bill Skarsgård as a mysterious prisoner at Shawshank), the new trailer for Hulu's Castle Rock series has been revealed ahead of the show's premiere later this month.
"Welcome to #CastleRock. From Stephen King & J.J. Abrams, the Hulu Original Series based on the #StephenKing universe premieres July 25.
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."
