Confirmed: Castle Rock is an anthology set within the Stephen King universe

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

A few months back we shared with you guys the first bits of actual footage from CASTLE ROCK the upcoming Hulu series from Stephen King and JJ Abrams and it was all we could have hoped for.

But as much as CASTLE ROCK is (obviously) a Stephen King centric story, just how do the new series' showrunners plan to keep the show going for multiple seasons?

Well, the showrunners Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason were recently interviewed and revealed the series will be an anthology ala AMERICAN HORROR STORY with each season telling an all-new story set within the Stephen King universe

Sam Shaw on CASTLE ROCK:

The show is an anthology series. Every season will be a new story that's set in this town that's sort of like this archeological site where there are horrors and nightmares behind every door.

While we (kinda) already knew the series was going to be an anthology, this is 100% confirmation from the main creative team behind the scenes. Good to know, I say!

You can check out the full interview below and then make sure to let us know how excited you are about Hulu's CASTLE ROCK series in the comments below or on social media!
