It’s all connected, maaaannnn. No seriously. It is.
We cannot wait to check out the upcoming Hulu series “Castle Rock,” which is set to draw inspiration from the fictional town made famous by the works of Stephen King. The trailer for the series seemed to indicate that it will connect many of King’s iconic stories and bring them together into a shared universe of sorts. Of course, longtime King fans know that universe already exists.
Many of King’s stories share connections both big and small with one another, which has been a real treat for fans of his work. Misery, for example, makes mention of IT character Eddie Kaspbrak’s mother being Paul Sheldon’s neighbor growing up, and Georgie Denbrough is buried in the same cemetery that Pet Sematary‘s Gage Creed was originally buried in.
King’s stories are absolutely chock full of these fun little connections, and one super fan has just taken it upon herself to illustrate a complete, highly detailed flowchart that shows every connection in the long-running Stephen King Universe. Her name is Gillian James, and she’s just begun selling prints of the newly updated and expanded flowchart over on Etsy.
The 23″ x 35″, limited edition Stephen King Universe Flowchart explores the connections and relationships between the characters and places in the literary work of Stephen King. It is current up to and including End of Watch.
