Hulu's Stephen King-inspired anthology series Castle Rock returns for its second season next month and the premium streaming service has released a tense, first teaser trailer for the upcoming season.

New cast member Lizzy Caplan takes center stage as the classic antagonist of King's novel Misery, Annie Wilkes, in the teaser, seen undergoing a traumatic car accident involving her daughter. As Annie attempts to pick up the pieces of her life in the unsettling, small Maine town, a psychotic fury festers under the surface as Annie's unhealthy efforts at self-medication give way to bloody terror.

The teaser also reveals Tim Robbins character ominously emerging as racial tensions across town mount as a Somalian family, portrayed by Barkhad Abdi and Yusra Warsama, move into the area.

Drawing influences, story elements and characters from across Stephen King's bestselling bibliography, Castle Rock blends the author's works in the fictional Maine town. The Hulu original series is executive produced by J.J. Abrams.
