It is being reported that Hulu has cancelled Castle Rock after two seasons. The news comes nearly a year after the psychological horror drama wrapped its sophomore run on the streaming service.

The series premiered in 2018 and appeared to fare well early on. Critics praised its storytelling and well-rounded cast, while Hulu claimed its debut was its most-consumed original premiere ever. The critical acclaim continued in Season 2, though it is not known how many viewers returned to the series.

Based on various characters and settings from Stephen King's novels, Castle Rock combines the mythological scale and intimate character storytelling of the author's works, weaving together a saga of light and darkness that plays out in the Maine town of Castle Rock. Being an anthology, each season of the show was a self-contained story.
