Well, it’s either The Stand or It, as both are over 1000 pages and have been adapted as miniseries in the past. While It got a two-part movie, The Stand will get a streaming series on All Access.

Streaming will allow The Stand to explore the graphic horror of King’s prose without restrictions. We learned that King will write the final episode and who will being playing Stu, Nadine, Frannie and Henry. The Stand will premiere in 2020 with nine episodes.

Stephen King has been terrifying audiences since the 1970s, penning one best-selling horror novel after another, his name becoming synonymous with horror fiction in the process. Film and TV adaptations of King’s work have been prevalent just as long as he’s been publishing it, but recently there seems to be a Stephen King boom.
