Hulu’s impulsive decision for Castle Rock has upset Stephen King and his fans, as he wished Hulu to give a chance to Castle Rock Season 3. At the same time, everyone is wondering what happens next in Castle Rock Season 3, after its last season cliffhanger ending. But, Hulu’s words saddened everyone. Well, now it’s entirely unclear how things would move in the next chapter. Further, if Stephen King would continue with another platform or not. But, as of now, things aren’t in King’s Castle Rock favor.
Castle Rock was inspired by the same fictional Maine town where many of Stephen’s stories took birth. The creators Dustin Thomason and Sam Shaw plotted the story in a demonic twist. It follows a dishonored cop André Holland and a cryptic person Bill Skarsgård. It explored several real questions scarier than its supernatural things. As the story proceeds in the next season, it delves deeper into the life of Annie Wilkes (Lizzie Caplan). She stays in Castle Rock with her daughter. Soon, it drew attention to Somalian refugees, pod people, and French colonial cultists.
Castle Rock Season 3: Has It Renewed For The Next Season?
Unfortunately, not! In November, Hulu said that Castle Rock Season 3 wouldn’t be returning. In a recent interview, Stephen said like his viewers, he was also excited for Castle Rock Season 3. He added that producer J.J. Abrams first pitched the plan to continue with Castle Rock Season 3. But, Stephen King believed that the show was canceled prematurely.
Will The Hiatus Ending Ever Resolved?
In the last season’s finale, the familiar foe returns at an unexpected time. Well, it would be a key element that could form a bridge between both seasons. As the first season explores the town’s compelling story. But, the second season explores the universe where all the characters were currently living and facing chaos.
Unfortunately, Hulu’s sudden cancelation has disappointed many fans. Speaking about the story progression, Stephen said that finally, they got their feet under them. However, they didn’t get much time to explain everything.
Stephen continued that the series based on many characters crossover, which loyal fans can understand. The two different anthological seasons had finally bridged to add more storyline. Further, Stephen was looking for more potential chapters. That would explain the story arc of the antagonist and their connection with the fictional town.
Main Reason Behind Cancellation
Hulu has already planned to wrap the show. They didn’t want to continue the series after the second season. Well, it has nothing to do with the story and the reviews it achieved. As for Castle Rock, it reached a huge response from Stephen King’s loyal fan.
However, there’s a different story behind the cancelation of the show. The main reason behind this is the shift in production. Warner Brothers, which is behind the Hulu Original, is now focusing on its recent collaborations with HBO Max.
