Yes! The full trailer for the new tv adaptation of Stephen King’s classic The Stand is here and it’s looking really, really good.

The New Mutants director Josh Boone is helming the nine episode limited series on CBS All Access which kicks off just in time to ruin Christmas on December 17th and will arrive each week thereafter.

While the story of good versus evil battling in a world ravaged by a deadly flu called Captain trips is fairly well known as this stage, King is writing a new ending for the series –  which should be interesting, if nothing else.

Based on the best-selling novel by Stephen King, CBS All Access’s The Stand stars Whoopi Goldberg, Alexander Skarsgård, James Marsden, Odessa Young, Jovan Adepo, and many more. The limited event series will also feature an all-new coda written by Stephen King.

The cast includes Alexander Skarsgård as Randall Flagg and Whoopi Goldberg as Mother Abagail. Jovan Adepo, Owen Teague, Greg Kinnear, Brad William Henke, Nat Wolff, Daniel Sunjata, James Marsden, Amber Heard, Odessa Young, Eion Bailey, Katherine McNamara, Heather Graham, Marilyn Manson, Hamish Linklater and Henry Zaga also star.

Showrunners for “The Stand” are Benjamin Cavell and Taylor Elmore (“Justified”).

Don’t miss the premiere of The Stand on Thursday, Dec. 17, streaming exclusively on CBS All Access.

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….
