It seems as though Hulu fan-favorite show Castle Rock has been canceled after two seasons.
Castle Rock is an anthology series focused on the fictional town in Maine of the same name. This series drew a lot of inspiration from Stephen King stories like Misery and Shawshank Redemption.
In April of this year, Castle Rock producer J.J. Abrams and HBO Max joined forces to develop a new project called Overlook. There is speculation that it would be similar to the Castle Rock aesthetic and The Shining universe will be the inspiration, centering around the Overlook Hotel. Looks like fans will have to jump to HBO Max to get their Stephen King horror fix for now.

Soon, several candidates — unborn souls — arrive at Will’s to undergo tests determining their fitness, facing oblivion when they are deemed unsuitable. But Will soon faces his own existential challenge in the form of free-spirited Emma (Beetz), a candidate who is not like the others, forcing him to turn within and reckon with his own tumultuous past. Fueled by unexpected power, he discovers a bold new path forward in his own life. Making his feature-film debut after a series of highly acclaimed and award-winning short films and music videos, Japanese Brazilian director Edson Oda delivers a heartfelt and meditative vision of human souls in limbo, aching to be born against unimaginable odds, yet hindered by forces beyond their will…”
Nine Days was directed by Edson Oda and releases in select theaters on January 22nd, 2021.
With a two-season, 24-episode order of The Boondocks in the works from HBO Max, Adult Swim has seemingly pulled several episodes of the popular series “due to cultural sensitivities.”Aqua Teen Hunger Force was also a casualty as well with some of its episodes being pulled also.
Adult Swim confirmed the episodes have been removed after Reddit users noticed some episodes were missing from HBO Max’s lineup. According to The Daily Beast, ATHF episode “Shake Like Me” from season six and “The Story of Jimmy Rebel” from The Boondocks‘ third season was removed. The reason for ATHF episode being removed is the title references John Howard Griffin’s 1661 book Black Like Mee in which Shake learns about stereotypes after being bitten by a black man. The Boondocks episode refers to, of course, Uncle Rukus’ relationship with a racist country singer and his bigoted music.
In a statement made to the Daily Beast, an Adult Swim representative stated:
“When Adult Swim transitions series to a new platform, we determine what episodes are selected through creative and cultural filters and our standards and practices policies. Oftentimes these decisions are made in collaboration with the show’s creators.” As such these episodes are “permanently retired due to cultural sensitivities.”
