‘The Haunting Of Hill House’ Season Two Is Officially Happening
Netflix is really serving up the hits lately, and we are here for it! The streaming service is so much more than movies and old TV shows these days. They’ve been putting out some original content that is better than anything you could find anywhere else. One of the most popular original shows they’ve produced is The Haunting of Hill House. The spooky horror series premiered to much fanfare in 2018, and you can still stream the first season now. Fans were clamoring for a second season almost as soon as the credits rolled on the last episode! Well, we have some really good news for Hill House fans – a second season has just been announced! Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait until 2020, but still. We’re getting more ghosts, you guys!
The Haunting of Hill House is going to anthology route in season two. So we’re saying goodbye to the Crain siblings, but hello to new scares!
The first season of The Haunting of Hill House focused on the Crain siblings and their time in the troubled Hill House. But fans were wondering how producers could get a second season out of it, since it wrapped up at the end of the first season. So creators are going the way of American Horror Story, and queuing up a new tale with new characters. It looks like each season of Haunting will tell a different story, and we are stoked about that. Doing an anthology keeps it fresh and interesting, and provides plenty of opportunities for new spooky stories!
The second season will be called The Haunting of Bly Manor.
The first season used the works of Shirley James as source material to create the series. But the second season will be drawing inspiration from “The Turn of the Screw”, a 1898 haunted mansion story from Henry James. And season two may also bring some familiar faces. Deadline reports that at least some of the first season’s actors will be heading to Bly Manor, albeit in new roles adapted for the new season. So definitely getting some shades of American Horror Story and their penchant for recycling characters and actors into new story lines. The Haunting seasons are also part of a larger deal that will be bringing plenty of horror, sci-fi, and the supernatural to Netflix. Creators Mike Flanagan and Trevor Macy will be working on series for Netflix that delve into the spooky.
