Nov. 4 (UPI) — Castle Rock, a horror anthology inspired by the works of Stephen King, will not get a third season on streaming service Hulu.
Deadline and Variety reported the cancellation Tuesday, explaining it was because the production company behind it — Warner Bros. Television — is now focusing on supplying content to WarnerMedia’s streaming service HBO Max.
Premiering in 2018, Season 1 of Castle Rock starred Andre Holland, Sissy Spacek, Jane Levy and Bill Skarsgard. It was an original supernatural story featuring minor characters and the Maine-town setting of numerous King tales.
Season 2, which debuted in 2019, was a prequel to King’s novel, Misery. It starred Lizzy Caplan, Tim Robbins and Elsie Fisher.
The show’s executive producers and show-runners were Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason.
Hulu also recently canceled High Fidelity, Runaways, Harlots and Future Man.
