Chapelwaite, which is based on Stephen King’s short story “Jerusalem’s Lot,” debuted in 2021 on Epix (which is now MGM+). Set in the 1850s, the series “follows Captain Charles Boone (Adrien Brody), who relocates his family of three children to his ancestral home in the small, seemingly sleepy town of Preacher’s Corners, Maine after his wife dies at sea,” reads its official description. “However, Charles will soon have to confront the secrets of his family’s sordid history, and fight to end the darkness that has plagued the Boones for generations.”

The new season that was in development, as reported in February 2022, was supposed to reveal that the Boone family’s curse didn’t die with Jakub (Christopher Heyerdahl), and that De Vermis Mysteriis remains as powerful as ever.

In addition to Brody, the adaptation also stars Emily Hampshire (Schitt’s Creek), Jennifer Ens (Buying Back My Daughter), Sirena Gulamgaus (Transplant) and Ian Ho (The Expanse).

The series is executive-produced by Donald De Line, Jason Filardi and Peter Filardi.
