The old phrase “misery loves company” fits the second season of this anthology series set in the Stephen King universe, with the return of Annie Wilkes (wonderfully played by Lizzie Caplan) complementing the book/film Misery.
That’s not the only King novel that creeps into the narrative – an ancient evil is awakening in the neighbouring town of Jerusalem’s Lot. And Shawshank Redemption star Tim Robbins joins the cast as Pop Merrill, whom King’s ‘Constant Readers’ will recognise from the novella The Sun Dog. Digging deeper into the title town’s bloody underbelly and connecting classic King creations in inventive and unexpected ways, Castle Rock’s second season is a lot more satisfying than the first, and as an origin story for Annie Wilkes, it rocks!
