It’s not exactly surprising news, but that doesn’t make it any less awesome: Hulu has officially renewed Castle Rock for a second season. The series, from executive producer J.J. Abrams and Bad Robot, will continue to expand this particular little corner of Stephen King’s universe in Season 2, with new characters and a new story set in and around the fictional, eponymous Maine town.
Your summer trip to Shawshank is officially booked. Hulu confirms that Stephen King mashup drama Castle Rock will premiere in July, while a spooky new teaser highlights some old haunts and creepy goings-on.
If you thought the first trailer for Hulu’s J.J. Abrams-produced Castle Rock anthology was an overload of Stephen King references, the latest will really lock you up. Return to Shawshank and meet the all-star cast in a new Super Bowl spot for Castle Rock’s summer premiere.
One Stephen King universe invariably leads to another, and Hulu is finally ready to show us how. Check out the creepy first look at J.J. Abrams anthology series Castle Rock, as the mysterious goings-on of a small town reveal some familiar King sights.
The streaming and cord-cutting markets could look very different in a few year’s time, but Netlfix took a huge leap forward in granting subscribers the ability to download and watch their favorite content without an internet connection. Now, it appears as if Hulu will follow suit, planning to roll out an offline option in the coming months.
