Castle Rock is based on the works of horror genius Stephen King. The town of Castle Rock is a fictional place in Maine that shows up in a lot of King’s novels and short stories. It’s only natural that creators Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason used the town as the focal point of the show, that will feature a mash-up of King’s works.
