As die-hard fans will tell you, the name ‘Castle Rock’ references the fictional Maine town that appears as the setting in several King’s books.

Abrams’ production company, Bad Robot Productions, also posted a clip to YouTube that features various locations and characters from King’s extensive canon.

This appears to confirm talk that Castle Rock’s plot will intertwine King’s novels and short stories.

The project has been touted as a rival to Netflix’s runaway hit, Stranger Things.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, “The anthology will weave together characters and themes from those novels that use the Castle Rock location. Each season will follow a different set of characters and storylines while interjecting themes and specific characters from previous seasons.”

King and Abrams previously worked on Hulu’s original series 11.22.63., which was also based on one of King’s novels.
