Fans of horror-style TV shows in the autumn of 2018 were not deprived of attention, as they immediately got several TV shows by the day of Halloween, including a very cool project from Netflix called “The Haunting of Hill House”. Yes, this is another masterpiece, director and screenwriter Mike Flanagan (“Gerald’s Game”, “Hush”, “Oculus”, “Before I Wake” …) was working on it. It was based on the horror novel of writer Shirley Jackson. Starring roles: Michiel Huisman, Carla Gugino, Henry Thomas, Elizabeth Reaser, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Kate Siegel, Victoria Pedretti and Timothy Hutton.
The series is made like the best horror films, so it immediately found its audience. The first trailer of the show The Haunting of Hill House caused such an exciting reaction in the network that even before the start of the official broadcast, it managed to gather a huge fan base and plenty of positive reviews. And it is not at all surprising that as a result, the first season of the series received very good reviews by film critics and an unrealistically high rating (imdb 8.8 / 10, rottentomatoes 92 of 100%, metacritic 80%).
After such a noise in the horror world, all fans are only interested in one question: “Will there be a Season 2 of the Haunting of Hill House?”
We don’t even doubt that the series will receive a second season. This is confirmed by numerous rumors straight from the set. But wait, why do we need rumors, let’s look at the facts.
What do the actors and critics say about The Haunting of Hill House Season 2?
TV series actor Oliver Jackson-Cohen believes that there are several ways in which the story could go further.
“There are many different ways that will last for a couple of years,” he said in an interview with Digital Spy. “They can go back and tell the story of the house on the hill or make a dystopia. There are so many ways that they can work on, and I think it can be exciting.”
Michiel Huisman also expressed his opinion: “I have no idea what season 2 could look like. I am in any way “for”. It really depends on the audience if the show will be successful. The advantage of Netflix is that we immediately see if people are watching the show or not. This is where the conversation about whether season 2 will begin.”
Online reviews are a good way to understand whether The Haunting of Hill House has a chance to get a Season 2. On the Rotten Tomatoes website, the show has a very optimistic 92% rating. Very impressive result.
A review of critics can also be called promising. Daniel D’Addario of Variety wrote that “the show is slowly increasing its expressive power, telling the story of repressed trauma and family feud. This is a talented horror festival that makes a huge impression on the viewer.”
Jen Chaney from Vulture was not thrilled by the slow pace of the series, but wrote that as soon as the story starts moving, it starts “jumping out of ghastly ghosts right into the lens, as well as their yawing around the edges of the screen, which causes the viewer to guess if it really is he saw it or it’s just a hallucination.”
Based on this, you can make a strong prediction that we will definitely see The Haunting of Hill House Season 2 this year. Want to bet?
In the summer of 1992, Crain couple with their five children, Steven, Luke, Theodora, Shirley and Nell, were temporarily settled in Hill House while the mansion was being renovated. The family was going to sell it profitably and build their own home, which Olivia Crain designed. But the sudden repair work forced them to stay for a longer period.
There, they face to the paranormal and experience the tragic loss that make them to leave home. Events have left an indelible mark on the fate of children: Luke has become a drug addict, Shirley embalms corpses, Nell is prone to suicidal thoughts, and Theodora cannot control her libido. The only exception is the successful writer Steven, who is nonetheless obsessed with ghosts.
After 26 years, Crain’s brothers and sisters, along with their estranged father, are reunited again after the tragedy.
