A new take on Stephen King’s post-apocalyptic plague tale The Stand is set to air next month, and we have another brief look at it.

It’s probably the perfect year for a remake of the tale, and this ten-episode event series is certainly a star-studded affair. Amongst the credits you’ll find Whoopi Goldberg, Alexander Skarsgård, James Marsden, Odessa Young, Amber Heard, Jovan Adepo, Heather Graham, Greg Kinnear and more.

The series will also feature a new coda penned by King.

The Stand is set to kick off on December 17. Here’s the latest trailer:
