A lot of folks were luke warm on season one of Castle Rock – the show set in the Stephen King universe that airs on Hulu – I was one of them. I wanted to love it – I tried really hard to love it but truth be told – it was just kind of ‘meh’. Regardless, I was glad to hear we were going to get a second season and then when it was announced we would be visiting the formative years of one of King’s best villians – I was once again totally on board.
Today brings us our first look at what season two has in store for us and I have to say – it looks like the casting of Lizzy Caplan as young Annie Wilkes is dead on! Have a look and see if you agree.
The short and sweet synopsis tells us all we need to know:
“In Season 2, a feud between warring clans comes to a boil when budding psychopath Annie Wilkes (Lizzy Caplan), Stephen King’s nurse from hell, gets waylaid in Castle Rock.”
Misery arrives in Castle Rock on Oct. 23rd.
