It was recently announced that television show Castle Rock has been renewed for a second season at Hulu. This will delight those who were fans of the first season as well as fans of Stephen King. Indeed, Castle Rock is based on source material created by the acclaimed author and Craig Erwich, Head of Content and Senior Vice-President at Hulu, talked to Variety about the TV show.

Castle Rock

Here is what Craig Erwich had to say about how Castle Rock and its impact:

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.”

Still, Craig Erwich was also quick to assert that the success of Castle Rock does not mean that more shows similar to Castle Rock will be made:

Quite frankly it’s less about a strategy around anthologies and more about, that’s what this story demanded to be. The beauty of Hulu is that we’re not tied to any kind of shape or form. The creative can live in its best version, and the best version of ‘Castle Rock’ was this.”

Craig Erwich did, however, state that Hulu does have the opportunity to build upon this Stephen King universe they are establishing:

We have the ability to create a whole Stephen King experience. I think [that] will accumulate over time.”
