Stephen King Wants New Season Of CASTLE ROCK

Last month, Hulu gave J.J. Abrams’ Stephen King series Castle Rock the boot after two seasons. No reason was given but it’s assumed it has to do with COVID. Whatever the case may be, it looks like King would have like to see another season.

King tells NYTimes: “In the second season, they really got their feet under them. I would have liked to have seen it go on and grow a little bit.”

Castle Rock combined the mythological scale and intimate character storytelling of King’s best-loved works. It weaved an epic saga of darkness and light, played out on a few square miles of Maine woodland. Season one began when death-row lawyer Henry Deaver is lured back to his home town. Then the stellar second season centered on Misery‘s Annie Wilkes (Lizzy Caplan from True Blood). Better yet, it centered on her adventures in Jerusalem’s Lot aka Salem’s Lot.

Created by Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason, Castle Rock is a psychological horror anthology series, featuring and inspired by characters, settings, and themes from the stories created by Stephen King and his fictional town of Castle Rock, Maine.

The two seasons featured stars such as stars André Holland, Melanie Lynskey, Bill Skarsgård, Jane Levy, Sissy Spacek, Lizzy Caplan, Elsie Fisher, and Tim Robbins.

The series hit Hulu in July 2018. The first season sports an 87% approval rating over on Rotten Tomatoes with a Critics Consensus that reads: A meticulously crafted mystery brimming with allusions, Castle Rock is bound to please even the pickiest of Stephen King fans — though mileage may vary for casual viewers.
