The Haunting anthology series is unlikely to return to Netflix, its showrunner has revealed.

The popular horror series, which launched with the hugely successful The Haunting of Hill House in 2018 and followed up with The Haunting of Bly Manor this year, has wrapped for the time being.

In response to a fan who asked if there was going to be a third series of the spine-chilling anthology, series creator Mike Flanagan said on Twitter: "At the moment there are no plans for more chapters. Never say never, of course, but right now we are focused on a full slate of other Intrepid projects for 2021 and beyond.

"If things change we will absolutely let everyone know!"

The two series saw a number of actors, including Victoria Pedretti, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Henry Thomas, Kate Siegel, and Katie Parker, return in different roles as they experience paranormal activity in two different settings which continues to haunt them.

But that doesn't mean Netflix will be devoid of horror just because the anthology is done Haunting the streamer.

Mike has confirmed he is working on new horror series Midnight Mass, which follows "an isolated island community experiences miraculous events - and frightening omens - after the arrival of a charismatic, mysterious young priest."

We'll keep our fingers crossed that it's Andrew Priest in Fleabag, but we don't hold up much hope.

Filming was meant to start on the series in Spring of this year, but may have been delayed by the coronavirus pandemic, which shut production down on a number of upcoming series.

Should The Haunting of... series ever return in the future, Mike is keen to explore the concept of the supernatural for subsequent follow-ups.

"A ghost is an impact from the past on the present in every ghost story. That's all it really is, no matter how you dress it up," he told Entertainment Weekly.

"A ghost is simply an element of the past that refuses to live in the past and instead just encroaches upon the present that it alters the present. It changes the trajectory of the person who's experiencing that little piece of the past... That link between memory and ghosts and between ghosts and the past, that is the lifeblood of the show."
