Annie Wilkes & More Stephen King Callbacks in Full ‘Castle Rock’ Season 2 Trailer (VIDEO)
In the full teaser for the highly anticipated next chapter, King’s iconic character Annie Wilkes (Lizzy Caplan) is front and center as she drives into Castle Rock with a young girl (Elsie Fisher) in tow. “I’m a searcher who just wants to settle,” Annie tells the girl, who she refers to as “my perfection.”
But despite her overtly sweet exterior, Tim Robbins‘ — who is no stranger to King’s universe after starring in The Shawshank Redemption — Pop Merrill is suspicious of the Castle Rock newcomer. When he voices his concern about her, Annie counters, “You don’t know a cockadoodie thing about us.”
Annie find herself in Castle Rock at an inopportune time as a clashing of clans is currently taking place, and somehow she’ll find herself caught up in the mess.
Blood and violence abound in the teaser, which continues to take viewers on a walk through King’s memory lane. Visit the Marsten House, Jerusalem’s Lot, and Annie’s wild ways in the exciting new look at Season 2.
Joining Caplan and Robbins in the latest chapter are Paul Sparks, Yusra Warsama, Barkhad Abdi, Elsie Fisher and Matthew Alan.
