The teaser trailer arrived on Sunday (October 8) during New York Comic Con.

From executive producer J.J. Abrams, Castle Rock is written and produced by Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason in the spirit of King's work.

Set in the titular ME town, Castle Rock draws on a plethora of King's stories, weaving them together to make perhaps the most unfortunately spooky town in America-and even with the trailer below, that's pretty much all we know about the J.J. Abrams-produced series, given how mysterious the whole thing looks.

It was the strongest hurricane to hit the United States in over a century and the 155mph winds left Puerto Rico entirely without power.

Castle Rock is described as a "first-of-its-kind reimagining that explores the themes and worlds uniting the entire King canon, while brushing up against some of his most iconic and beloved stories". Plot details have been kept under wraps and the teaser doesn't give anything away, but it gives a good example of the tone of the series while also featuring a lot of details related to various Stephen King's novels, such as the Shawshank State Prison vehicle.

SkarsgÄrd - who played Pennywise the Clown in Stephen King movie It - is show behind bars, while Sissy Spacek, who starred in the 1979 Stephen King movie Carrie, is shown clutching a knife. The show is set in the "Stephen King multiverse", and you'll spot references to some of King's best-known works in this trailer such as It, Cujo, and Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption. It is slated to premiere in 2018.
