Remember way back in the 90s when Stephen King’s ‘The Stand’ came out as a mini-series on T.V.? There was no such thing as binge-watching back then. You had that drawn out on you, waiting for the next episode. It was cool and different and we always watched it whenever it replayed.

Well now, The Stand is coming back in an all-new 2020 reboot! Super fitting for this year right? Eh, we won’t talk about that though. Anyhow, the first trailer has been released!

Stephen King’s book ‘The Stand’ came out back in 1978 and is a post-apocalyptic story about a group that survived a crazy pandemic. 98% of the population of the world was just gone. Stephen King sure is good at finding people’s fears…

Again, let’s try to gloss over what is happening in the world right now and focus on this piece of fiction ok? The original mini-series starred starred Gary Sinise, Rob Lowe, Molly Ringwald (my favorite back then), and Laura San Giacomo.

The reboot is the same, yet different.

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. We’re honored 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.

I’m hoping it can match up to or even outdo the original. Watch the trailer below and let me know what you think! The 9 episode series will air on CBS All Access limited starting Thursday, Dec 17th, 2020!
