Based on Stephen King's best-selling novel about a world decimated by plague and embroiled in an elemental struggle between good and evil, The Stand is coming to CBS All Access on Thursday, December 17.

The nine-episode limited event series will drop weekly on Thursdays, available exclusively to CBS All Access subscribers.

In The Stand, the fate of mankind rests on the frail shoulders of the 108-year-old Mother Abagail (Whoopi Goldberg) and a handful of survivors. Their worst nightmares are embodied in a man with a lethal smile and unspeakable powers: Randall Flagg (Alexander Skarsgård), the Dark Man.

For King die-hards, there's even more to be excited about: CBS All Access' The Stand will close with a new coda written by the famed author himself.
