Castle Rock season 2 begins filming this March

I don't know about you but overall I found Stephen King and J.J. Abrams' psychological-horror series CASTLE ROCK to be a letdown. Especially that ending. Woof! That said, I'm still looking forward to the upcoming second season. I just hope the powers that be behind the scenes (aka showrunners Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason) find their footing a bit better and read up on their King before penning season two, episode one. But anyhow, if you're looking forward to season 2 like I am then you'll be pleased to hear that the new season is all set to begin filming soon.

More specifically, the production will be kicking off in Central Massachusetts come March. Not much, if anything, is known about the upcoming second season. But that said, there was an Overlook Hotel tease at the very end of season one... but what are the chances of that? After all, the Overlook Hotel isn't in Castle Rock. And would they really spend the second season away from the namesake town? I doubt it.

We'll let you know when we hear more, but until then, the first season followed: 

Henry Deaver (André Holland, American Horror Story), a Death Row attorney who returns to Castle Rock, Maine, his hometown, after he receives an anonymous phone call from the infamous Shawshank State Penitentiary. The call is about a nameless young man (Bill Skarsgård, It) who is found locked in an underground cage that’s located in a long-abandoned cell block beneath the prison. Upon his discovery, the mysterious young man, with a sinister and unnerving presence, whispers Henry’s name. Curious about how and why someone left this boy imprisoned, Henry is drawn into the case and attempts to help him. But there are reasons why “The Kid” was imprisoned.  And reasons why he should never be set free.

Permeated with a sense of foreboding and dread, the haunting small town of Castle Rock is not willing to let Henry leave. Aside from now having to deal with the strange young man found in the prison, Henry is faced with the fact that his adoptive mother (Sissy Spacek, Carrie), who lives in Castle Rock with retired Sheriff Alan Pangborn (Scott Glenn), is struggling with the onset of dementia. Reluctantly, Henry stays to figure out just who “The Kid” is and how he wound up imprisoned under such appalling circumstances.

In addition to Holland, Skarsgård, and Spacek, the series also stars Melanie Lynskey (HEAVENLY CREATURES), Jane Levy (EVIL DEAD), and Terry O’Quinn (THE STEPFATHER). It was created by Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason who serve as executive producers along with Abrams, King, Ben Stephenson, Mark Lafferty, and Liz Glotzer. The series is from Bad Robot Productions. The first season is now available to own on Blu-ray.
