Unless you’ve lived under a rock for the past few weeks, you’ve at least heard of the Netflix series The Haunting Of Hill House. The show is been raved about by many, especially with Halloween around the corner, and continues to receive primarily positive reviews from critics and viewers alike. Typically, when a series is this successful, rumors and speculation start to build regarding whether or not a second season is planned or in the works.
Recently, creator Mike Flanagan sat down with Entertainment Weekly and chatted about specific story angles, the approach to filming a scene and what could be set for the future.
I don’t want to speculate too much about season two until Netflix and Paramount and Amblin let us know if they want one. What I will say, though, is that as far as I’ve ever been concerned with this, the story of the Crain family is told. It’s done. I think that there are all sorts of different directions we could go in, with the house or with something completely different. I love the idea of an anthology as well. But to me, I felt like the Crains have been through enough, and we left them exactly as we all wanted to remember them, those of us who worked on it.
We toyed with a cliffhanger ending and we toyed with other ideas, but ultimately, in the writers’ room and with the cast and everything else, we really felt like the story demanded a certain kind of closure from us and we were happy to close the book on that family.
That said, I think more than anything, the show is about haunted places and haunted people, as Steve says, and there’s no shortage of either. So, there’s any number of things we could do, in or out of Hill House.
Personally, an anthology series would be the way to go, based on the house or the books written by the Steven Crain character. What do you think? Leave a comment below!
