Oh, hello, folks! The Halloween season is upon us, and, thankfully, in Netflix’s The Haunting of Bly Manor, The Haunting of Hill House has a follow-up sequel series, with several members of the original cast playing new spooky roles in this new spooky tale.
Will the creators be renewing the series for a third season?
The Haunting of the— Netflix has not been officially renewed yet, although honestly, that does not seem to matter these days, Netflix has taken a bit too literally a spooky season and ax-murdered their original programming. The firm reversed and canceled its decision on shows such as GLOW and The Society, which were both renewed in 2019. The COVID-19 pandemic is continuing to throw the entertainment future into whack. Initially, Netflix renewed The Haunting of Hill House as an anthology series with a repertory cast per Variety, like American Horror Story, and signed a multi-year agreement with creators Mike Flanagan and Trevor Macy, executive producer.
This makes it look like the streaming service which was originally intended for the show for a few seasons but which is taken with a salt grain. There is plenty of hope for Haunting to do more. This is a popular mega show with a relatively tiny cast. Not to be flippant, but in their haunted houses, the characters in ghost stories are basically self-quarantined, right? In this climate, if any show is safe to film, one would think it would be this one.
Perhaps? let’s hope so!
When will Season 3 of The Haunting launch?
That is a valid question. Flanagan is already continuing to work on alteration of The Midnight Club for Netflix, a 1994 young adult novel, as well as a program called Midnight Mass. This is not linked to the anthology of Hill House and Bly Manor or part of it. But it does mean that there might be some time before Flanagan’s lineup is allocated for even more Haunting. It could, essentially, be a very long time away.
Season 3 will be based on which spooky novel?
First, two seasons of the anthology are premised on The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson and The Turn of The Screw by Henry James, respectively. These two novels are very much at the top of the list of gothic horror and/or romance lists, and there are so many more genre classics that the anthology could adapt to future seasons.
