M-O-O-N, that spells hot damn the teaser trailer for CBS All Access’ version of The Stand just hit! This is thirty seconds of I Can’t Wait, and it’s glorious. From Alexander Skarsgård’s subtly creepy Walking Dude to Whoopi Goldberg’s soothing Mother Abigail, there’s a lot to take in.
A miniseries about a pandemic *during* a pandemic? Don’t mind if I do – I’ve already watched the original 1994 miniseries a few times in the past few months… What? It’s nice to have a happy ending.
But speaking of endings, this new adaptation “will also feature an all new coda” written by the man himself. So fellow Constant Readers, will we be getting that coda from the extended edition, or something altogether different? Only one way to find out. The Stand hits CBS All Access December 17th, 2020. Boo!
