Season 1 of Castle Rock recently landed on Hulu to critical acclaim and within it’s first day of launch on the streaming service became the most successful first season of a Hulu Original show. It’s been confirmed today that the show will in fact return for a second season. Hulu’s senior vice president and head of content Craig Erwich had this to say on the renewal, noting it will be a “wholly original idea”:
It was a deeply original idea from two of the world’s greatest storytellers, and it was centered around something that’s been beloved and familiar to many of Stephen King’s legion of fans, which is the town of Castle Rock. So expectations were high to begin with, but it exceeded them. The reaction from the variety of audiences has been overwhelming and it seems to be one of the most talked about shows of the summer… By all measures, audience, critical, and social response the show has been one of the breakout hits of the summer in television.
The finale of the first season is set to air September 12th. Stay tuned!
