It's a world constructed of equal parts darkness and light, with an all-star cast and riveting story that is more relevant now than ever before.

Here's everything you need to know to stream The Stand once it premieres on Thursday, Dec. 17, with new episodes available on-demand every Thursday exclusively on CBS All Access.

What's The Stand all about?
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 in a world decimated by a 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 (Alexander Skarsgård).

Based on the best-selling Stephen King novel, the original novel is one of the author's most beloved creations from his storied career.

As if an adaptation of his work wasn't exciting enough, the Master of Horror himself has penned an all-new coda for the series' final episode.
