Even though Stephen King’s The Stand was first published in 1978, the new miniseries adaptation couldn’t be timelier. Its post-apocalyptic plot centres on a pandemic. King’s vision of a literally plagued world is a lot darker than our world, and the miniseries looks set to deliver on all things dark and dramatic.

Driving the action is an ensemble cast of fascinating characters. Check out who’s who in The Stand and make sure you catch this new miniseries on M-Net, starting Monday 18 January at 22:30.
