Castle Rock

Hulu



Call it Stephen King's Greatest Hits.

Hulu debuted the trailer for "Castle Rock," the upcoming anthology series based on the works of Stephen King, and it is chock-full of references to the author's most famous works.

It starts off with the introduction of Bill Skarsgard — but not playing Pennywise from "IT." Instead, he's an unnamed prisoner at Shawshank (from King's 1982 novella, later turned into a hit, Oscar-nominated movie).

He remains silent until he meets lawyer Henry Deaver (André Holland), then eerily asks, "Has it begun? Do you hear it now?"

That kicks off a series of Easter Egg flashes: Sissy Spacek (the star of "Carrie"), a nod to Cujo in the form of newspaper headlines about rabid dogs, a shot of the Juniper Hill Asylum, and more.

The cast also includes Melanie Lynskey, Jane Levy, Scott Glenn, and Terry O'Quinn. "Castle Rock" premieres July 25 on Hulu.
