Hulu content boss Craig Erwich has opened up about the future of Castle Rock saying the streaming service “has not made any further decisions on Castle Rock.”
Specifically, he tells Deadline:
“We have not made any further decisions on Castle Rock, people are still continuing to discover it. I thought Lizzy Caplan was revelatory in her portrayal of Annie Wilkes, it was a whole new take on the character and it was very brave of her given what Kathy Bates has done [in Misery].”
So it sounds like the man enjoys the series himself, but maybe the ratings just aren’t there to get an immediate season 3 renewal. We’ll keep you up to date as we hear more.
The second season of this killer psychological-horror series centered on a feud between warring clans that comes to a boil when budding psychopath Annie Wilkes (Lizzie Caplan), Stephen King’s nurse from hell, gets waylaid in the small town of Castle Rock. Local businessman Reginald “Pop” Merrill (Tim Robbins) is dragged into the fight, when Pop’s nephew, legendary bully John “Ace” Merrill (Paul Sparks), stirs up trouble.
Based on characters and situations created by Stephen King, Castle Rock was developed for television by Sam Shaw (Manhattan, Masters of Sex) and Dustin Thomason (Manhattan, Lie to Me) who serve as executive producers along with J.J. Abrams, Stephen King, Ben Stephenson (Westworld), Greg Yaitanes (The Twilight Zone), Vince Calandra and Liz Glotzer. The series is from Bad Robot Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.
The second season of Castle Rock will be available to own on Digital on January 21, 2020. Castle Rock: The Complete Second Season then hits Blu-ray on May 19, 2020.
