Hulu’s upcoming series Castle Rock weaves storied horror author Stephen King's darkest nightmares into a new narrative. Something is deeply wrong with the town of Castle Rock, Maine. Between the homicidal dogs, serial killers, and the presence of the infamous Shawshank penitentiary, the simplest solution seems to be for the town's residents to move. But they love their town — warts and all — even if it is trying its hardest to kill them.
SYFY WIRE got the chance to speak with Castle Rock executive producers and co-creators Sam Shaw and Dustin Thompson, as well as series stars Bill Skarsgård (IT, Hemlock Grove), Melanie Lynskey (Togetherness, Heavenly Creatures), and Jane Levy (Evil Dead, Don't Breathe) at San Diego Comic-Con 2018. We discussed the cast’s real-world fears and the pressures of joining (and adding to) the ever-growing King-verse.
