A Breakdown of How Castle Rock Connects to the Rest of the Stephen King Universe
If you enjoy TV shows that present you with a tantalizing mystery and then take their sweet time slowly unveiling clue after clue, then Hulu's Castle Rock should be at the top of your watch list. But for any Stephen King fans among us, said mystery might not be as mysterious. Although the chilling new series features a ton of King alumni in the cast, it's not actually based on any one book in the famed horror author's oeuvre — it borrows bits and pieces from many. The fictional New England town of Castle Rock, for instance, has been used as a setting in novels like The Dead Zone, Doctor Sleep, and Revival, among others. Now that the new Hulu series is chugging right along, familiarize yourself with all the other ways it connects to the Stephen King universe ahead.
