Epix’s Stephen King Series Chapelwaite Season 2 in the Works

EPIX has confirmed that the second season of Donald De Line’s horror drama Chapelwaite is officially in development. This comes after three months since the Adrien Brody-led first season concluded its 10-episode run. The series is based on Stephen King’s iconic short story Jerusalem’s Lot.

“The second season continues as a terrifying re-imagining of the classic gothic horror that chronicles one family’s battle with an ancient and persistent evil. We will learn that the Boone curse didn’t die with Jakub, and despite Charles’s selfless act at the end of season one, De Vermis Mysteriis remains as powerful as ever, and as alluring to a new generation of vampires,” reads the synopsis.
