Carla Gugino hints at a possible return in Haunting of Hill House Season 2
Actress Carla Gugino might return for Season 2 of The Haunting of Hill House, aka The Haunting of Bly Manor.
“Well,” said Gugino, who played Olivia Crain the original series, in an interview with The Wrap, “I can’t say anything definitive at this point, other than Mike and I really love collaborating and working together and any opportunity where a schedule allows for us to do that, we will, and I would be honored to… So we’re talking a lot about it and we’ll just see if all schedules allow. All I can say is I’m very excited for Season 2 and to see what Mike does.”
Season 2 will focus on all new characters as series creator/director Mike Flanagan felt he had succinctly told the story of the Crain family. As such, the focus will shift to an all-new story based on “The Turn of the Screw” by Henry James.
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.
