Another Stephen King story looks to be taking on a life of its own.
Chapelwaite–an Epix adaptation of King’s 1978 novella Jerusalem’s Lot (a prequel to the horror master’s classic novel ‘Salem’s Lot)–had been planned as a limited series, but a report on collider.com indicates that Season 2 of the eerie storyline is now in the works.
The show’s 10-episode first season–now streaming on Epix–is set in the mid-19th Century and follows Capt. Charles Boone (Adrien Brody) as he moves to a new town with his three children, where he finds that the locals fear the Chapelwaite mansion and have no love for the Boones.
Boone hires Rebecca Morgan (Emily Hampshire) to help him tend to the mansion, and the pair soon uncover secrets surrounding the house and discover an ancient cult that worships beings that live deep beneath the ground.
The first season dealt with the happenings in Jerusalem’s Lot, but the next is expected to branch out to an expanded storyline. One possible plot thread will deal with further exploration of the Boone curse, which appeared to have been lifted in the Season 1 finale.
The first season of the show–which also stars Jennifer Ens, Sirena Gulamgaus, Ian Ho, Gord Rand, Trina Corkhum and Genevieve DeGraves–is led by showrunners Peter and Jason Filardi.
