Netflix has ordered a follow-up to Oculus and Hush writer and director Mike Flanagan‘s hit horror series The Haunting of Hill House. But it’s not going to be a direct season two.
Instead, Netflix is turning the show into an anthology. The second season, which has been revealed as The Haunting of Bly Manor, will tell a brand new story with different characters from the ones followed in the first season.
Friday night at New York Comic-Con featured one of the most anticipated panels of the event: Netflix and Chills. The two-plus hour panel gave the Javits Convention Center Main Stage crowd insight and previews into four of the biggest upcoming series coming to the streaming service this Fall and in the near future. We were treated to stars of The Umbrella Academy, The Haunting of Hill House, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Moderator Josh Horowitz had his hands full with all the guests in an amazing night for the NYCC main stage crowd.
Last year we found out that Netflix had given The Haunting of Hill House a 10-episode straight to series order. The show would come from Mike Flanagan, Steven Spielberg‘s Amblin TV, and Paramount Television.
After that it was revealed that the cast would include Carla Gugino, Michiel Huisman, Henry Thomas, Elizabeth Reaser, and Kate Siegel.
Now Netflix has released an official trailer for The Haunting of Hill House, which you can find below along with more info.
Three new actors have joined the cast of The Haunting of Hill House, the upcoming Netflix series based on Shirley Jackson‘s 1959 novel of the same name. The series comes from Oculus, Hush, Absentia, and Ouija: Origin of Evil director Mike Flanagan, Steven Spielberg‘s Amblin TV, and Paramount Television.
Boarding the project is Henry Thomas, Elizabeth Reaser, and Kate Siegel. They join the previously cast Carla Gugino (Sin City, San Andreas) and Michiel Huisman (Game of Thrones, Treme).
Now Flanagan takes his talent for terror to Netflix for a new horror series. The streaming service has made a 10-episode straight-to-series order for a new adaptation of the classic ghost story The Haunting of Hill House written, directed, and executive produced by Flanagan, and through Steven Spielberg‘s Amblin TV and Paramount TV.
