The Haunting of the Hill House is back with its season 2. The parents Hugh and Olivia, along with their five children Steven, Shirley, Theodora, and twins Nel and Luke, are moving into their new home.
The show landed amidst already blockbuster hits, and nobody thought that it would gain so much attention from the users.
The season 1 of Haunting Hill released in October 2019. So, we expect season 2 to also release in October 2020. After all, that is the best time for the show to be aired since its all Halloween vibes.
We all doubted the casting for season 2 that whether the original ones will be back or not. But things are likely to be in a similar way. So, Victoria Pedretti (Nell Crain), Oliver Jackson-Cohen (Luke Crain), Henry Thomas (Hugh Crain) and Catherine Parker (Poppy Hill) are going to be back in their roles. T’Nia Miller, Amelia Eve, Benjamin Ainsworth and iZombie star Rahul Kohli will be the new additions to the cast.
The show is going to be completely different from the previous season. When asked about the future of the show, the creator, Mike Flanagan, said: “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 cliff-hanger ending, and we toyed with other ideas, but ultimately, in the writers’ room and with the cast and everything else, we felt like the story demanded a certain kind of closure from us, and we were happy to close the book on that family.”
“The show is about haunted places and haunted people, as Steve says,” added Flanagan. “And there’s no shortage of either. So, there’s any number of things we could do, in or out of Hill House.”
“We’re looking at all the ghost stories of Henry James as the jumping-off point for the season, so it very much is a whole new deal,” Flanagan mentioned.
The trailer of the show would be out in summers or early autumn 2020. Since the show is expected to release around Halloween. And it’s going to be horrifyingly fascinating.
