In an apocalyptic vision of a world decimated by plague and embroiled in an elemental struggle between good and evil, the fate of mankind rests on the frail shoulders of the 108-year-old Mother Abagail and a handful of survivors. Their worst nightmares are embodied in a man with a lethal smile and unspeakable powers: Randall Flagg, the Dark Man.
In 1979 Stephen King published The Stand, a massive apocalyptic tale that set the standard for all those stories that followed. The book was another King best-seller, leading to the release of The Complete and Uncut version in 1990, a 1994 ABC four-part mini-series and a 31-issue Marvel Comics adaptation in 2009.
Now, in 2020, King’s opus is being revisited yet again, with a 9-episode series for CBS All Access, bringing the story into the 21st Century. This new version will feature a brand-new coda written specifically for the new series by Stephen King himself.
