Earlier this week, we reported that Sissy Spacek and Jane Levy had joined the cast of Hulu’s upcoming Stephen King-inspired series Castle Rock, and now another actor has decided to move to the show’s spooky, eponymous New England town. According to Deadline, the latest newcomer is TogethernessMelanie Lynskey; she’ll be playing Molly Strand, the female lead, who Deadline describes as “a woman with a rare medical condition who’s barely scraping by as a real estate agent in a town where every third property is the site of someone’s worst nightmare.” The male lead is being played by André Holland, who is Spacek’s character’s adopted son and an attorney with some kind of connection to the dark secrets of the town.

The show comes from J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot studio and it’s set in some sort of Stephen King multiverse, with storylines that will take inspiration from some of King’s famous stories, but we still don’t really know what that will look like in action.
