The Haunting of Hill House renewed at Netflix
The Haunting of Hill House has been renewed at Netflix, but the follow-up season will take place in a new location with a new haunting when the anthology series returns. TVLine has confirmed that Season 2 will feature a new story with all new characters. Check out the renewal announcement video below for The Haunting of Bly Manor, based on the works of Henry James!
The Haunting of Hill House renewal is part of Netflix’s multi-year overall television deal with creator Mike Flanagan and executive producer Trevor Macy.
“Mike and Trevor are masterful at creating authentically frightening stories that leave audiences on the edge of their seats but unable to look away. We’re excited to continue our partnership with them on The Haunting series and future projects to come,” said Cindy Holland, VP of Original Content at Netflix.
A modern reimagining of Shirley Jackson’s iconic novel of the same name, The Haunting of Hill House Season 1 explored a group of siblings who, as children, grew up in what would go on to become the most famous haunted house in the country. Now adults, and forced back together in the face of tragedy, the family must finally confront the ghosts of their past — some of which still lurk in their minds while others may actually be stalking the shadows of Hill House. Created, directed and executive-produced by horror mastermind Mike Flanagan (Gerald’s Game), The Haunting of Hill House is a complex family drama wrapped in a chilling horror story. Trevor Macy served as executive producer alongside Flanagan. Meredith Averill acts as co-showrunner and executive producer. Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank executive produce, as well.
The Haunting of Hill House is written, directed and executive produced by Flanagan. His producing partner Trevor Macy will also executive produce alongside Amblin TV’s Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey.
The Haunting of Bly Manor will premiere in 2020 on Netflix.
