Published Oct 09, 2020While it may feel that we're already living out Stephen King's pandemic novel The Stand in real time, the author's celebrated tale is coming back to TV later this year. Now we can see a lot more of what horrors await us via a new trailer.
Ahead of The Stand's premiere on CBS All Access this winter, you can now get a much better idea of what to expect below.
As previously reported, the show will star James Marsden, Amber Heard, Greg Kinnear, Odessa Young, Henry Zaga, Whoopi Goldberg, Jovan Adepo, Owen Teague, Brad William Henke, Daniel Sunjata, Alexander Skarsgård, Nat Wolff, Eion Bailey, Katherine McNamara, Hamish Linklater and Heather Graham. Marilyn Manson is also in the show.
"During the two years we spent making The Stand, we all felt the responsibility of adapting what may be the most beloved work of one of the world's most beloved storytellers, but none of us could have imagined that Stephen King's 40-year-old masterpiece about a global pandemic would come to be so eerily relevant," showrunner Benjamin Cavell previously said in a statement. "We're honoured to tell this sprawling, epic story, including a new coda that Stephen King has wanted to add for decades. We're so proud of this show and its attempt to find meaning and hope in the most uncertain of times. We can't wait to share it with the world."
The Stand will arrive on December 17. There will be nine episodes in total, with each arriving weekly.
