Rejoice, Stephen King fans. The Stand is finally getting a proper TV adaptation and it's landing on CBS All Access — which will be renamed and overhauled shortly — on Dec. 17. It's based, of course, on Kings' legendary 1978 novel of the same name, which focuses on a global pandemic that wipes out 99% of the population.

The limited series stars Whoopi Goldberg and Alexander Skarsgård with supporting roles from the likes of James Marsden and Odessa Young. It's being helmed, in part, by Benjamin Cavell, who previously worked on two of our favorite shows: Justified and Sneaky Pete.
