With filming having kicked off earlier this month, Hulu's Castle Rock series has just gained another TV heavyweight with Terry O'Quinn, who previously starred as Locke on ABC's Lost. The show will mark a reunion between O'Quinn and J.J. Abrams, who co-created and executive produced that hit series and serves as executive producer on the new series coming to Hulu in 2018.
The series is described as a psychological-horror series that spins a saga of darkness and light played out in a few miles of Maine woodland set in King's multiverse. The fictional Maine town of Castle Rock has featured prominently in several of Kings' works, including Cujo, IT and The Dark Half. Castle Rock will dive into themes and worlds that bring the King canon together.
O'Quinn will be playing Dale Lacy, who Deadline describes as "a pillar of the community in the town of Castle Rock."
The actor joins Andre Holland, who stars as Henry, a death row attorney with a unique and complicated history in the town, and Melanie Lynskey, who will play Molly Strand, a woman with a rare medical condition who’s barely scraping by as a real estate agent in a town where every third property is the site of someone’s worst nightmare.

The series has also cast King alumni like Sissy Spacek, who starred in Carrie, the first of his novels to be adapted for a movie, and Bill Skarsgård, who plays Pennywise in this September's It.
Castle Rock is currently filming and will most likely debut on Hulu at some point next year.
