The film adaptation of Stephen King’s It broke horror box office records, so it’s not a surprise that the entertainment industry is tapping into more of the author’s work. Introducing: Hulu’s Castle Rock, a horror anthology series (sounds familiar?) that seems like it’ll cover many of King’s most familiar stories.

The first teaser doesn’t reveal much in the way of plot, but if you’re familiar with King’s work at all, a few things should immediately stand out to you:

First off: If you thought, “Why, isn’t that actor the handsome chef bae from Moonlight?” You’d be absolutely right; hey André Holland.

But it’s not just the actors that should be familiar to King fans. Castle Rock itself is a city in the author’s universe, home to and mentioned in everything from It, Stand By Me (based off of his story The Body), and The Stand. And here’s another familiar setting: Hello, Shawshank PD. (As in the Shawshank Redemption, based off of his story Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption.)

Though Halloween’s right around the corner, you’ll have to wait until 2018 to dig into Castle Rock.
