As many times as Stephen King’s works have been adapted to the big screen, the author also has quite the legacy when it comes to TV. Books like The Stand and Salem’s Lot have been adapted into miniseries, and titles like The Mist and Mr. Mercedes have become shows.
The most recent King-based TV show is Hulu’s Castle Rock, which unlike most projects related to King, doesn’t adapt any single one of his stories. Instead, Castle Rock takes place within King’s multiverse, and incorporates aspects of many of his most beloved tales.
Recently, Castle Rock’s producers made it known that were the series to continue, it would take on an anthology format, and tell a different King-connected story each season. Now, THR reports that Hulu has officially renewed the popular program for season 2.
Based on the prior report about each new season telling a different story though, one wonders if any cast members will return. Season 1 boasted quite the ensemble, including lead Andre Holland, Bill Skarsgard, Sissy Spacek, Terry O’Quinn, Jane Levy, and Scott Glenn.
If any of those actors do come back, one assumes they’ll be playing different characters, in a different setting. This wouldn’t be anything new for TV, as FX’s American Horror Story has been doing it for almost a decade. Here’s hoping details on season 2 are revealed soon.
