Will there be another series of Castle Rock?

Castle Rock was officially renewed for season two by Hulu in August 2018.

The series, which brings together the worlds of many of Stephen King’s novels to Castle Rock, Maine, was given another season just six episodes into its first series.

However, a release date for Castle Rock has not yet been given.

Season one of the Hulu hit began July 25, 2018, with its 10-episode run ending tonight.

As such, we might expect a season two to air sometime in summer 2019.

At time of writing, filming has not started on the second season.


Shooting on season one started in August 2017, so the fact that the second season has not begun yet could suggest a release date later in 2019.

Although season two is coming soon, a UK home for the season has not yet been announced.

What will happen in Castle Rock season 2?

Although plot details for Castle Rock season two have not been released, the final episode’s mid-credits sequence reveals a potential storyline that will have Stephen King fans happier than Pennywise in a sewer.

In the sequence, we see Jackie Torrance (played by Jane Levy) writing a family history called Overlooked.


When asked by her friend about the book, she says: “The best place to finish a book is where it started,” suggesting we are getting a visit to the Overlook Hotel from King classic The Shining.

This was seemingly confirmed in an Entertainment Weekly interview with Castle Rock showrunners Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason.

In this article, Shaw said: “What I would say is that we would sure love to see Jackie explore the Overlook Hotel.”

He then gave more details about what season two would look like, saying: “The penultimate episode of this season points to the idea that there are other worlds than these.

“In this final tag there’s this sense that there are worlds of Stephen King’s that this show may explore eventually that are more far-flung than the state of Maine.”


Who will star in Castle Rock season 2?

In the Entertainment Weekly interview, it was also suggested the new season would focus on new characters, without ruling out that characters from the current season will return in some form.

“Part of what we always set out to do from the beginning is tell a new story each season,” he said, before adding, “the pleasure of finding your way back to stories or characters you’ve seen before in unexpected ways is a huge, exciting advantage of this series.

“I think it’s something that we can do, and allow it to be an anthology but still embrace stories and characters that we love. It just may not happen in the way that one might expect.”

As such, it is not currently known who will star in season two, though expect actors who have previously appeared in Stephen King properties.
