In The Stand, the fate of mankind rests on the frail shoulders of the 108-year-old Mother Abagail and a handful of survivors in a world decimated by plague.

A struggle between good and evil, the survivors' worst nightmares are embodied in a man with a lethal smile and unspeakable powers: Randall Flagg, the Dark Man.

The nine-episode limited event series will premiere on Thursday, Dec. 17 with new episodes dropping weekly on Thursdays, available exclusively to CBS All Access subscribers.

As if an adaptation of the fan-favorite King novel wasn't exciting enough, CBS All Access's The Stand will feature a brand new coda written by Stephen King himself.
