Netflix has ordered the making of “The Haunting of Hill House” season 2 and fans can now start building expectations for the next installment as more details have been confirmed recently. Some of the key information indicates that it will take a while before the new episodes arrive, but some of the actors from season 1 will return to assume new characters.

The first season’s story has concluded but does not mean “The Haunting of Hill House” season 2 cannot happen. Series creator Mike Flanagan recently confirmed that the series will continue and will be inspired by an all-new classic horror literary piece.

‘The Haunting of Hill House’ season 2 NEW title confirmed

The title of the series is one of its most important elements, especially for this one. The first season was given its title because its plot is focused on the Hill House. However, “The Haunting of Hill House” season 2 will have an all-new story and setting that call for a new title.

Flanagan told Birth.Movies.Death that second installment will be officially called “The Haunting of Bly Manor” with a story based on Henry James’s 1989 horror novella “The Turn of the Screw” set in a house in London called Bly. But since the series is still widely known for its first title, this article will still address the next installment as “The Haunting of Hill House” season 2.
