Prepare for "Misery" this fall.
Hulu announced the "Castle Rock" Season 2 premiere date on Thursday, teasing in a tweet, "Misery arrives." The tweet alludes to the theme of the sophomore season of the Stephen King-based show; "Misery" is one of the horror writer's novels. Season 2 will arrive on Oct. 23, with Lizzy Caplan playing one of the book's main characters, the psychotic former nurse Annie Wilkes.
Hulu's date announcement video unfortunately doesn't show any footage from the season. It does, however, offer some creepy visuals, including the title "Castle Rock" against a dark, cloudy sky. "Misery arrives" appears below in red.
