Produced by King and J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions, the show will see familiar characters from disparate stories cross paths in a fictional small town in Maine.

We previously reported that Bill Skarsgård, who played Pennywise in Andy Muschietti’s IT is part of the cast. Today brings word that another IT alum will be seen in Castle Rock when the show finally arrives.
Chosen Jacobs (It) is set for a recurring role in Hulu’s upcoming psychological-horror drama series Castle Rock from JJ Abrams and Stephen King. Set in the Stephen King multiverse, Castle Rock, from Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television, is named after the fictional town in King’s native Maine that is featured prominently in a number of his novels, novellas and short stories. Per the producers, it combines the mythological scale and intimate character storytelling of King’s best-loved works, weaving an epic saga of darkness and light, played out on a few square miles of Maine woodland. Jacobs will play Wendell Deaver, the son of Henry Deaver (Andre Holland). Jacobs played Mike Hanlon in Stephen King’s It and will reprise his role in It: Chapter 2.
Others already cast in Castle Rock include Sissy Spacek, Chris Peles, and Jane Levy.
We still don’t have a release date for Castle Rock, but we’ll keep you posted as details emerge. In the meantime, check out the trailer below.
