Mike Flanagan and Trevor Macy to Produce ‘The Haunting of Hill House’ Follow-Up and More Horror Television for Netflix

Between the tremendous successes of The Haunting of Hill House and Gerald’s Game, Netflix knows they’ve got a creative team for the ages in Mike Flanagan and Trevor Macy. Writer/director Flanagan, and longtime collaborative producer Macy deserve all the praise they received this past fall when Hill House took off like a firecracker after years of excellent projects like Oculus and Hush, and today’s big announcement means that more quality horror content from their twisted minds will soon be streaming to a television near you!

Variety reports that Netflix has inked a multi-year agreement with Mike Flanagan and Trevor Macy for horror television projects exclusive to Netflix. The deal includes a follow-up to The Haunting of Hill House, which “will feature an entirely new story and new characters from those seen in the first season.” The plan is to turn the popular program into an anthology series of self-contained stories, all under The Haunting banner. Season Two will be called The Haunting of Bly Manor, and it is based on Henry James’ 1898 novella about a haunted manor and creepy kids called The Turn of the Screw.

The official Twitter page for The Haunting took today’s announcement directly to the fans with two new short clips teasing the source material for the next season:

 

The Haunting of Bly Manor will debut on Netflix in 2020. There is no news on any of other upcoming Flanagan/Many projects at this time, so stay tuned to Horror News Network for complete coverage of these exciting new shows as soon as they break!

John has loved movie monsters for as far back as he can remember. He's since collected up as many comics, statues, and autographed material related to movies and music that he can get his hands on. He is particularly interested in the critical and analytical discussion of the best stories the horror genre has to offer. One of his largest works on the topic is a study on the portrayals of people with disabilities in horror films.
