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.
In just a couple of weeks, Hulu is taking Stephen King fans back to Castle Rock — the fictional Maine town where many of the author’s horror classics are set — for a new series from producer J.J. Abrams. The latest trailer for Castle Rock is, as you might suspect, filled with Easter eggs for various stories in the King universe.
The home of Russian spies, mutants and horror stories is heading into the real world. FX has partnered with The New York Times for a new weekly news series that will also stream on Hulu after its initial airing.
