Castle Rock Season 3: Will It Ever Return?

Castle Rock Season 3 is one of the most-awaited and prolific shows that take the form of an anthology that we have had the pleasure of seeing in a long time. To be quite fair, it was to be expected given that the show was based on the works of Stephen King, and he rarely ever disappoints with his work. We have seen it before with his earlier works, and Castle Rock cemented his name in the television space too.

I’m personally a fan of Castle Rock because of the excellent storytelling and the fantasy vibe that the show gives off, other than being based around the reality of Castle Town, Maine, which is an imagination of the author Stephen King himself. I personally grew to love Castle Rock and its stories, and so did millions of other Stephen King fans. When the show came on to the screen, there was so much commotion about it. And in the end, it was all very justified.

Castle Rock Season 3: So Far

Castle Rock Season 3

Castle Rock Season 3 is now well awaited by the fans and has been well overdue for a long time now. Fans of the show saw the second season such a long time ago and were left in the dark when no season 3 came out when it was due. The show has had an amazing run over the course of the first two seasons, and has been loved by audiences across all demographics.

Perhaps it is because of the universal nature of Stephen King’s work, but the show was well adapted to everyone and the second season of the show blew everyone away with the way that it handled itself. It told Wilkes’ story in the best possible manner and went on to end the story in an even more spectacular manner.

Coming to the end of the second season, a lot could not be said about the existence of the plot for the third season as the show is based on an anthology concept and it is really hard to say what route the creators had decided to take regarding the show at the time.

The third season of the show was initially meant to be released in 2020, but could not be released owing to the coronavirus pandemic that took over the world. At least that is what most of us thought at the time. And how wrong we were!

Castle Rock Season 3: Release Date

Castle Rock Season 3

Castle Rock Season 3, is unfortunately never going to be a thing. The show had a great run for the first two seasons of the show and it led people to believe that the show will be renewed for a third season. But the people over at Hulu decided otherwise, and not for the reasons that most of you might expect. The show Castle Rock was canceled by Hulu because of issues that had nothing to do with income and ratings. Rather, the reasons behind the cancelation had everything to do with the way that the network functioned and the way they had originally planned to take the show further.

Apparently, the show creators had decided that Annie Wilkes’ story was all that they wanted to tell on the show, and that it would end after that. They stuck to their plan and gave the character the ending that it deserved at the end of Season 2, and that was it for Castle Rock. So there is never going to be a Castle Rock Season 3, and fans are going to be disappointed if they were hoping for more from the anthology series.
