Castle Rock where filmed

Really bad things are happening in Stephen King's favorite town, a place straight out of nightmares. The horror series revolves around Henry Deaver, a death row lawyer who returns to his hometown of Castle Rock after receiving a mysterious call.

The 10-episode Hulu production, based on the stories of Stephen King multiverse, was created by J.J. Abrams (also the maker of the hit television series Lost). The cast is led by André Holland (Moonlight, American Horror Story), Sissy Spacek (Carrie, Bloodline) and Bill Skarsgård, the Pennywise clown of It.

The fictional Maine town of Castle Rock was filmed basically in Orange, Massachusetts. New England Studios in Devens was the series home base for the indoor scenes. We will be updating this spoiler-free report every week with new filming locations for this long awaited show:
