WATCH: Trailer drifts in for The Mist TV series on Spike

May 8th, 2017 by Marc Comments

After years of awful Stephen King adaptations it looks like the author – arguably the finest of our time – is finally getting his dues with what look like a host of great looking projects.

We have IT coming this September, along with The Dark Tower in August as well as the Castlerock series, the Drunken Fireworks limited series and the End of Watch series.

Now Spike TV has debuted the trailer for The Mist, based on King’s short story of the same name that tells the story of a small Maine town that becomes covered in an mist that has something sinister hiding in it.

The movie that was released in 2005 was a pretty faithful adaptation of the short story with a devastating finale, but we’d imagine the series will delve into the characters a lot more if it’s to have longevity.

It hits screens on June 22nd…

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….
