This is not the first time that the director and writer have worked with Hulu. Back in 2016, he released a time-travel miniseries starring James Franco called “11.22.63”

Even though there is no release date, number of episodes or more information about the series, we are sure the show will be a fantastical ride. Both Abrams and King have a history of creating stories that will make you believe these worlds actually exist.
