The limited series, which stars Whoopi Goldberg and Alexander Skarsgard, will finally be premiering.
‘The Stand’ will make its debut on CBS All Access this coming December. With episodes debuting weekly as of December 17th, ‘The Stand’ tells the story of the world locked in a battle between good and evil, with the fate of humanity resting on the shoulders of an elderly woman.
“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,” said showrunner Benjamin Cavell. “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.”
