M-Net (channel 101) will see the start of the series Castle Rock tonight (May 16, 2020) at 22h00.

In the second season premiere, budding psychopath Annie Wilkes (series star Lizzy Caplan), Stephen King's nurse from hell, gets waylaid in Castle Rock, while a feud between warring clans comes to a boil.

The Stephen King multiverse is the setting for this psychological horror series that takes place in Castle Rock, Maine, which is a location familiar to fans of King's work. Castle Rock explores themes and worlds that unite King's canon, including the infamous Shawshank Prison.

An anonymous phone call lures death-row attorney Henry Deaver back to Castle Rock. He is unsettled by his hometown, but he returns to help a sinister, mostly mute man being kept in a cage underneath Shawshank.

Sissy Spacek and Bill SkarsgÄrd, who starred in feature adaptations of King's Carrie and It, respectively, are among the show's stars.
