Get ready for the new daily show

WATCH: JJ Abrams and Stephen King join forces again for Castle Rock

February 20th, 2017 by Marc Comments

A new series from the mind of Stephen King is coming to Hulu.

Castle Rock is a name recognisable to readers of the horror author and thus the new show, with the help of JJ Abrams, will feature stories set in this fictional town of Maine.

Books such as Cujo and The Dead Zone are set in that location while works like It, Dreamcatcher, Pete Semetary, Sleepwalkers, The Shawshank Redemption and Under the Dome make reference to the town.

King and Abrams previously teamed for the time travel series 11.22.63, and the new teaser, above, drops the names of plenty of famous characters and locations from the world of King’s most famous stories.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
