The tie-in edition of the nine-part series starring Whoopi Goldberg, Alexander Skarsgard, and James Marsden, coming in the UK from Starzplay, premiering on 3 January, 2021. FIRST CAME THE VIRUS. AND THEN THE DREAMS... A man escapes from a biological testing facility, unknowingly carrying a deadly weapon: a mutated strain of super-flu that will wipe out over 99 percent of the world's population within a few weeks. Those who remain are scared, bewildered, and in need of a leader.

Two emerge - Mother Abagail, the benevolent 108-year-old woman who urges them to build a peaceful community in Boulder, Colorado; and Randall Flagg, the 'dark man', the apostate of death, the warlord of the charnel house and Prince of Evil. Now the survivors must choose between them - and ultimately decide the fate of all humanity. Stephen King's apocalyptic vision of a world blasted by plague and tangled in an elemental struggle between good and evil is a classic for our times. 'A masterpiece' - Guardian'His work plumbs with unnerving accuracy, the hopes and fears of an entire nation' - Observer
