Hulu announced that he was canceling “Castle Rock” after two seasons. The anthological drama series was based on Stephen King’s works such as “Misery” and “Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption”, which were previously adapted for cinema and won the Oscars. The story is set in the fictional Maine town that is the scene of several important King stories.
The first season featured Andre Holland, Sissy Spacek, Bill Skarsgard, Melanie Lynskey, Scott Glenn, Jane Levy and Terry O’Quinn. The second season starred Lizzy Caplan, Tim Robbins, Yusra Warsama, Barkhad Abdi and Matthew Alan. News of the cancellation came more than a year after the season two premiere aired in October 2019. The late decision suggests that the indecision on the pandemic and cancellation is effective.
