Stephen King's seminal novel The Stand is once again getting a small screen adaptation — this time with a nine-episode series coming to CBS All Access.

King's 1978 book is one of his most popular (and, currently, most relevant) titles. It centers on a group of survivors who have made it through a catastrophic plague, the Captain Trips virus, that cost the other 99 percent of the world their lives.

But those survivors must still contend with the supernatural villain Randall Flagg, aka the Dark Man.CBS All Access' new series marks the first time the story has been adapted since ABC's four-episode The Stand miniseries in 1994.
