Its one of Stephen King’s most popular novels and having already been a mini series, way back in the early 90’s, CBS All Access are now bringing a new adaption of THE STAND to a whole new generation.

To get us in the mood, a trailer has been released which you can see below and it looks rather good.

THE STAND – stars Whoopi Goldberg, Alexander Skarsgård, James Marsden, Odessa Young, and Jovan Adepo – will premiere on CBS All Access December 17th!

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 by a man with a lethal smile and unspeakable powers: Randall Flagg, the nefarious ‘Dark Man’!
