The series is written by King, directed by Pablo Larraín, and produced by J. J. Abrams. It stars Julianne Moore in the title role. Lisey’s Story premiered on Apple TV+ on June 4, 2021.
“Lisa “Lisey” Landon is the widow of famous fiction author Scott Landon, who died two years prior to the start of the series. Lisey is still mourning Scott, and fending off parties who are interested in obtaining Scott’s unpublished manuscripts. While sorting through Scott’s possessions, Lisey discovers that Scott has left her a treasure hunt, which has her revisiting memories of their marriage, especially suppressed memories of unusual abilities that Scott had. While Lisey pursues this treasure hunt, she gains a dangerous stalker who believes that she is selfishly keeping Scott’s genius from the world.”
If Apple were to renew for another season of the Stephen King adaptation, it would likely be within the next few months. But depending on schedules and shooting, it wouldn’t be likely audiences would see a Lisey’s Story season 2 until mid-2023.
