Haunting of Hill House Star Addresses Franchise’s Future
Netflix’s new adaptation of Haunting of Hill House is a modern reimagining of the classic horror novel. The show has been met with critical acclaim and praise from fans, but some have expressed concern that it will be the last time they get to see the story on their screens.
The haunting of hill house cast is a horror television series that has been on the air for three seasons. It was created by Mike Flanagan and has been adapted from the novel of the same name written by Shirley Jackson.
The Haunting of Hill House, which premiered just in time for Halloween in 2018, quickly gained a devoted following on Netflix, resulting in the anticipated follow-up season The Haunting of Bly Manor, but star Carla Gugino confirmed that, while there don’t appear to be any plans for a new season, she knows series creator Mike Flanagan has plenty of great ideas up his sleeve. Given that Flanagan is presently developing several shows for Netflix, it’s conceivable that those projects may be more satisfying to horror fans than a third season of The Haunting. Gugino is presently starring in the Netflix original series Gunpowder Milkshake.
“I’m not invested in what [Flanagan is presently working on], but we really enjoy collaborating. So, yes, I’m looking forward to seeing what we’ll be doing next, whether it’s another Haunting or something else “Gugino confirmed the news to. “As an audience member, I think it’s always difficult, and I understand because I’m an audience member for things I’m not in, and it’s difficult because you love — you become involved in and love these things. But, in terms of supporting and being enthusiastic, I believe we should remember that for an artist, whether it’s [Bob] Dylan or anybody else, any great artist, they’ll always have to say, ‘Okay, now I’m done with that chapter because I want to stay great and keep growing better.’ Do you get what I’m saying? So I’m not sure whether he’s through [with The Haunting], but I believe if there isn’t a third one, it’ll be because he feels whatever comes next will be better. That will be the thing if he can make that one spectacular.”
Gugino and Flanagan initially worked on Netflix’s Gerald’s Game, and then on both seasons of the Netflix TV series.
Flanagan helmed all of The Haunting of Hill House’s episodes, which allowed him to pursue other projects, while Bly Manor necessitated the hiring of several filmmakers to bring the story to life. The director is now working on two Netflix shows, Midnight Mass and The Midnight Club, which will likely prohibit him from continuing to create new Haunting tales.
Flanagan stated in December that there were no plans for a third season, but that he wasn’t ruling it out completely.
When a fan inquired about the series’ future, Flanagan replied on Twitter, “At the time, there are no plans for additional chapters.” “Of course, nothing is ever certain, but we are now focusing on a full slate of other [Intrepid Pictures] projects for 2021 and beyond. If anything changes, we’ll make sure to let everyone know!”
Keep an eye out for developments on The Haunting and Flanagan’s other shows. Gugino may presently be seen in the Netflix original film Gunpowder Milkshake.
