In the second season, a feud between warring clans comes to a boil when budding psychopath Annie Wilkes (Lizzy Caplan) – Stephen King’s nurse from hell – gets waylaid in Castle Rock.

The series is a dual coming-of-age story chronicling the personal and sexual journeys of an empty-nest mother and her college freshman son, who both embrace their newfound freedom with mixed results. As the series begins, Eve Fletcher (Hahn), a mid-40s single mom who works as the executive director of a senior center, drops her only child off at college and returns home to a very empty house. Meanwhile, Eve’s son Brendan (Jackson White), a popular (though sometimes clueless) jock, finds college is a little more complicated than he expected and struggles to make connections with his more socially and politically aware fellow students.
