Marc Bernardin has been to 18 installments of San Diego Comic-Con... but this is his first as the writer of a TV show. And what a show it is — he's one of the people behind Hulu's upcoming exploration of the Stephen King multiverse, Castle Rock. Although it's not based on any one particular work from the master of horror fiction, the show will incorporate characters, mythology, and thematic elements from across the canon, while also trying to creep out folks who have never read a King book in their lives.

Castle Rock made a splashy debut in its panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2018, and we sat down with Bernardin afterward to talk about what hardcore fans can expect to see, which works most informed the proceedings, and why lead actor Andre Holland makes a great Stephen King protagonist.
