Castle Rock, Season 2: October 23rd on Hulu 
We were sucked into the original season based in the town of Castle Rock, a portal of sorts to the various characters and storylines featured throughout Stephen King novels. An anthology, season 2 will brings an entirely new tale and cast just in time for Halloween. 

Honorable Mention: Sharon Van Etten's Departure is worth every second and left us wanting a full documentary (versus the "mini" version that was created) from an artist we have loved and followed for years.
