The Hulu series Castle Rock (2018 – 2019) occupies a unique textual space that both builds upon and transcends traditional notions of adaptation in its approach to Stephen King’s canon, engaging with the significance of place, intersecting narratives, and multiple worlds. As stated in the opening credits, Castle Rock is ‘based on characters and settings by Stephen King’, but it uses those established elements to create something original, telling new stories, building on iconic characters and creating compelling tales for new ones, situated within one of King’s signature Maine towns.
