Stephen King’s multiverse, Castle Rock, is a place which combines the mythological scale and intimate character storytelling of the best-selling author’s best-loved works. In season two, a feud between warring clans comes to a boil when budding psychopath Annie Wilkes (Lizzie Caplan, Masters of Sex), Stephen King’s nurse from hell, gets waylaid in the small town of Castle Rock. Local businessman Reginald “Pop” Merrill (played by Academy Award-winning actor Tim Robbins - Mystic River) is dragged into the fight, when Pop’s nephew, legendary bully John “Ace” Merrill (Paul Sparks, House of Cards), stirs up trouble. It’s another eerily unforgettable season of Castle Rock, as the mysterious town’s ongoing epic saga continues to unfold.
Season two of Castle Rock also stars Barkhad Abdi (Captain Phillips) as Abdi Howlwadaag, Yusra Warsama as Dr. Nadia Howlwadaag, Elsie Fisher (Eighth Grade) as Joy and Matthew Alan as Chris Merrill (Snowfall, 13 Reasons Why).
“Author Stephen King has given us such an abundance of iconic characters and extraordinary stories. Castle Rock is a celebration of his remarkable literary accomplishments. Whether you know King’s work or have never read any of his stories, Castle Rock will keep you at the edge of your seat from start to finish,” said Rosemary Markson, WBHE Senior Vice President, TV Marketing. She added, “The series is beautifully shot, with high production values and superb acting performances. It’s a series you won’t want to miss.”
From Stephen King (Mr. Mercedes, It, 11.22.63) and J.J. Abrams (Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, Westworld, 11.22.63), Castle Rock is a psychological-horror series set in the Stephen King multiverse. Castle Rock, which first premiered on Hulu, combines the mythological scale and intimate character storytelling of Stephen King’s best loved works, while weaving an epic saga of darkness and light that’s played out on a few square miles of Maine woodland.

Castle Rock is an original suspense/thriller - a first-of-its-kind reimagining that unites King’s themes and worlds, and brings together the author’s most iconic and beloved characters.
