ORANGE, Mass. (WWLP) The town of Orange transformed into the cursed, fictitious “Castle Rock” for a second time as the Stephen King series returns to the small western Massachusetts town to film scenes for season two.
“It’s kind of a big deal for us because normally things like this happen in cities, so for a company like Hulu to pick a small town like Orange, it was kind of a big deal,” said Orange Police Administrative Assistant Brenda Anderson.
Anderson told 22News, she’s proud of how supportive the community has been, even with the occasional detour and backed up traffic.
“This is the second year we’ve done this here in Orange so we have a little bit of practice now. We have good communication with Castle Rock. The biggest thing is understanding what they’re trying to accomplish, so we could figure out exactly what we need to help them do that,” said Orange Police Acting Chief James Sullivan.
One Peabody man traveled more than 90 miles to catch the production in action.
“We saw Tim Robins doing a scene, which was pretty cool, you don’t see that everyday. And we just walked around, we were looking at different props and stuff like that. We really love the first one so we’re just hoping to see how things are made,” said Eric Digan.
