New Trailer For Stephen King Multiverse TV Show Has Lots Of References

Introducing: Hulu's Castle Rock, a horror anthology series (sounds familiar?) that seems like it'll cover many of King's most familiar stories.

Castle Rock is the name of the fictional ME town that many of King's works have referenced over the years. The series, which is produced by J.J. Abrams, will star Melanie Lynskey as Molly Strand, Scott Glenn as Alan Pangborn, André Holland as Henry Deaver, Janey Levy as Jackie, Terry O'Quinn as Dale Lacy and Bill Skarsgård - who played Pennywise in the recent adaptation of It - in a now unknown role. Although it didn't reveal much about the plot, the teaser offered some insights into what fans could expect from the forthcoming Hulu series. Melanie Lynskey's real estate agent Molly Strand, meanwhile, was seen sitting in a auto wearing dark glasses after a scene of someone holding a missing child pamphlet flickered on the screen.

For one thing, it's It star Bill Skarsgård's first post-clown project, and he looks like he's poised to bring the frights even without that makeup. As the voiceover so elegantly (and hauntingly) asks, "You have no idea what's happening here, do you?" At today's NYCC panel, Castle Rock stars Sissy Spacek, Andres Holland, Melanie Lynskey, and hot on the heels from his turn as Pennywise in IT, Bill Skarsgard, kept numerous plot details under wrap. In the final shot, a vehicle sinks into a body of water, with a very loaded decal on the bumper: "Shawshank Department of Corrections", also known as the prison facility at the heart of The Shawshank Redemption, officially confirmed as a key setting for the series. So far, we don't know which King characters will show up in "Castle Rock", and what the original story line will involve.
