Stephen King’sThe Stand concludes on CBS All Access. In the final ninth episode, “The Circle Closes”, Stu (James Marsden) and Frannie (Odessa Young) hit the road towards Maine, but make a curiously deadly pit stop in Nebraska.

Join Losers Randall Colburn, Michael Roffman, Jenn Adams, and McKenzie Gerber discuss King’s new coda, how it fits into the original novel, and, finally, which performances they prefer between the 1994 version and this adaptation.

That’s not all. The Losers also reunite with showrunner Benjamin Cavell to discuss the themes within the new coda, the political allusions that naturally surfaced, and why Alexander Skarsgard’s Randall Flagg feels different without Vegas.


Founded in January 2017, The Losers’ Club is a weekly podcast for Constant Readers, horror hounds, and new fans of Stephen King to dig deep into the author’s oeuvre and the myriad TV, film, print, and stage adaptations of his work..
