Castle Rock: Season 2 will take the audience to Salem’s Lot


The second season of Hulu’s Castle Rock will continue exploring other memorable sites from Stephen King’s universe. Next stop: Salem’s Lot.

The fictional town of Castle Rock still has a lot to offer, and will bring more characters and places from the universe of Stephen King in the second season of Hulu’s series Castle Rock. The first season premiered last summer and had a total of 10 episodes, but fans were left wanting more, and so the series was renewed for a second season.

This upcoming version of the series will continue bringing characters and themes from various Stephen King stories, including Anne Wilkes from Misery, to be played by Lizzy Caplan. It will also take us to other very well-known places from King’s universe that we briefly saw on season one. Remember Jerusalem’s Lot?

According to Recorder (via JoBlo), production on season two has officially begun in Orange, Massachusetts, with the town temporarily turning into Castle Rock, with signs here and there being replaced, and stores turning into places from King’s imagination. But that’s not all: the nearby town of Gardner is being transformed into Jerusalem’s Lot, or Salem’s Lot.

The site reports that Season 2 will involve “a conflict between the neighboring towns”, and it connects with Caplan’s character, Annie Wilkes. You’ll see, Wilkes “gets waylaid” in Castle Rock, bringing the conflict between the two towns to “a boiling point”. Misery and Salem’s Lot in one? Yes, please!

Joining the cast alongside Caplan are Tim Robbins (who will play Reginald “Pop” Merrill), Garrett Hedlund (playing Pop’s nephew, John “Ace” Merrill), Yusra Warsama (as Dr. Nadia Omar), Barkhad Abdi (as Abdi Omar, Nadia’s older brother), Elsie fisher (as Joy, Wilke’s daughter), and Matthew Alan (as Ace’s brother, Chris Merrill).

Castle Rock’s season two gets more and more interesting as more details come to light. Will we get to see some vampires? Or will they keep them for a future season? What kind of trouble will Wilkes bring to make the conflict between towns even worse? So many questions, so much time to go before Season 2!

Next. Stephen King to make rare podcast appearance. dark
