Hulu has released a little teaser for the second season of Stephen King’s Castle Rock. There’s no footage featured in the teaser, it just announces that “Misery Arrives on October 23rd.”

I loved the first season of this show and I can’t wait for Season 2, especially with the addition of the classic Stephen King character Annie Wilkes from Misery.

The story is said to focus on “a feud between warring clans [that] comes to a boil when budding psychopath Annie Wilkes (Lizzy Caplan), Stephen King’s nurse from hell, gets waylaid in Castle Rock.”

Paul Sparks (Boardwalk Empire, House of Cards) will play Castle Rock’s legendary bully, John “Ace” Merrill, who was originally played by Kiefer Sutherland in Stand By Me. Ace is said to be taking over “his uncle Pop’s (Tim Robbins) businesses and threatening a fragile peace with nearby Jerusalem’s Lot.”

Elsie Fisher (Eight Grade) will play Joy, “Annie’s home-schooled teenage daughter, Joy is starting to have questions about her mother’s sanity.”

Yusra Warsama (Assassin’s Creed: Origins) will Dr. Nadia Omar, “The Harvard-trained Somali medical director of a rural hospital in Jerusalem’s Lot, Dr. Omar’s rational and scientific mind will be put to the test.”

Barkhad Abdi (Blade Runner 2049) will portray Abdi Omar, “The tough, older brother of Nadia, Abdi leads the charge to build a Somali community center that will deepen the roots of his people in Maine.”

Matthew Alan (13 Reasons Why) will play Chris Merrill, “Pop’s nephew and Ace’s brother, Chris struggles to keep peace between the Merrills and the Somali community.”

J.J. Abrams is producing the series with King, and it was created by Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason.
