A Second Series Of The Haunting Of Hill House Could Be On The Cards

A Second Series Of The Haunting Of Hill House Could Be On The Cards

This might contain a few spoilers...

Netflix has reportedly already 'talked' about the possibility of bringing The Haunting of Hill House back for a second series if the first was successful.

The latest horror series is terrifying viewers, leaving them vomiting, close to passing out and unable to sleep, so you could say it is doing pretty well.

The series has only been available to stream since the 12th October, but it has got viewers well and truly spooked.

The Haunting of Hill House is based on Shirley Jackson's classic 1959 novel of the same name, and is described as a slow-building horror.

Mike Flanagan's adaptation follows five siblings who grew in the house, and they are forced to return to the mansion and relive their nightmares.

Over the course of 10 episodes, the programme reveals the horrific haunting that took place at the Crain's childhood home, and the impact that it's had on them as adults.

At the end of the first series, we learnt that Hugh Crain (the father) sacrificed himself to protect his children from the evil that lies behind the Red Door.

After realising this and previously being sceptical and frustrated by his dad, Steven assumed the responsibility of keeping the Crain family safe and the secret of Hill House hidden.

But that doesn't mean that the secrets and demons can't escape again.

Michiel Huisman (Steven Crain) has spoke about the possibility of a second series and horror fans will not be disappointed.

Speaking to JOE, Michiel said: "Well, you know what. Very early on, when we were still shooting this show, we had conversations about what a second season could look like and I think that one of the crazy things about Mike (Flanagan) is that he is an infinite well of ideas and stories.

"I don't think he ever sleeps! There are possibilities - if the show is a hit - to create a second season and still be in this world of Hill House."

It's also been revealed that the series is loosely based on a true story. The plot is reportedly based on two young English girls, Charlotte Anne Moberly and Eleanor Jourdain, who visited the historic Palace of Versailles, while on a trip to Paris in 1901.

The pair got lost in the grounds while trying to find the Petit Trianon, a small castle near the Palace and things started to go from bad to worse.

After taking quite a few wrong turns the pair encountered a gathering of ghosts, just like the Crain family.
