‘Castle Rock’ Trailer: Lizzy Caplan Leads a ‘Misery’ Origin Story in Season 2 of Stephen King Anthology

In the world of Stephen King novels, hospitals aren’t exactly the happiest of places. That’s especially true when Annie Wilkes is involved.

As part of Season 2 of “Castle Rock,” the Hulu anthology series based on the prolific author’s ever-growing body of work, Lizzy Caplan will assume the on-screen role made famous by Kathy Bates in the 1990 film “Misery.” Rocking the same shoulder-length bob and walking around in orthopedic shoes that are sinister by association, these new episodes find her in her pre-“Misery” days, after an accident leaves her stranded in the Maine town that gives the series its name.
