Stephen King and J.J. Abrams thrilled genre fans in 2016 with the time-travel miniseries “11.22.63,” and the pop culture titans are headed back to Hulu with the mysterious new anthology “Castle Rock.” Though the teaser is a literal flyover of Maine, reminiscing some of King’s best-known titles, the show will focus on the most notorious characters from Castle Rock, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The town of Castle Rock looms large in the King universe, appearing as a location in novels such as “The Dead Zone,” “Cujo,” “The Dark Half,” and “Needful Things.” Few other details about the show, including premiere date and episode count, are currently known.

Abrams’ last major television production credit was HBO’s “Westworld,” and he’s working on several projects for 2017, the most prominent being a producer on “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” King most recently published “End of Watch” in 2016, and is currently writing a new book about a women’s prison with his son, Owen King. Three other King adaptations are coming out this year as well: a “Dark Tower” film headed to theaters this summer, an “It” remake opening in fall, and a television adaptation of “The Mist.”
