Lizzy Caplan and Tim Robbins to star in Castle Rock season 2
Annie Wilkes is back for more misery.
Stephen King series Castle Rock has cast Lizzay Caplan and Tim Robbins for its second season.
The anthology series, which takes Stephen King characters and settings and adapts them for TV, will focus on characters from Misery for season 2.
Lizzy Caplan will be playing unhinged nurse Annie Wilkes, with the season focusing on her before the events of Misery.
Wilkes was famously played by Kathy Bates in the film adaptation (which also starred James Caan) in a role that viewers still remember today.
Tim Robbins will join Caplan as Reginald “Pop” Merrill, the patriarch of a crime family that runs the town of Castle Rock.
Castle Rock features characters from a number of King novels including Salem’s Lot, Dreamcatcher, The Shining, Misery and The Green Mile.
The series is one of the many Stephen King properties that is being adapted for the screen in 2019, including It: Chapter 2 and Pet Sematary, which is opening next month.
The series is a Hulu exclusive, meaning it’s not available to watch in the UK on actual TV, though Amazon Prime customers can purchase a “StarzPass” add-on to watch it via streaming.
