Season 2 of the anthology series premiered more than a year ago. There were no expectations for a third installment, and the decision to end the series after two seasons was made awhile ago. Once one of the first suppliers of Hulu after it branched out into premium original content, Warner Bros TV has focused its attention to supplying recently launched sibling HBO Max. There are no plans for Castle Rock to continue on HBO Max, we hear.
In Season 2 of the series from J.J. Abrams and Stephen King, a feud between warring clans came to a boil when budding psychopath Annie Wilkes (Caplan), King’s nurse from hell, got waylaid in Castle Rock. The Season 2 cast also included Yusra Warsama, Barkhad Abdi, Elsie Fisher and Matthew Alan.
Sam Shaw & Dustin Thomason developed the project for television and served as executive producers along with Abrams, Ben Stephenson, Vince Calandra, King and Liz Glotzer. Castle Rock hailed from Bad Robot Productions in association with Warner Bros Television.
Castle Rock is the latest series to be canceled at Hulu, joining High Fidelity, Harlots, Future Man and Runaways, among others.
