Variety & The Hollywood Reporter also shared some great articles if you're interested in a few more details on the series.

The first season has one story that will “run its course throughout the episodes” in the “seasonal anthology” style, Shaw pointed out. The idea is that he town is kind of an “advent calendar” and the show can “honor the diversity of the kinds of stories Stephen King tells.” Therefore, both producers like the idea of being able to jump around in time and bringing in different characters that “intersect in different ways.”

"There are certainly some actors who want to know everything from the beginning and there are some who don't want to know more than what their characters know," Thomason said. Lost veteran O'Quinn was happy not knowing anything. While shooting on the first day of filming, he told producers he didn't need to know much about what would happen to his character. "You work long enough on a J.J. Abrams show and you learn to work on a need-to-know basis," he told them.
