The Haunting of Hill House has been a massive success since its release in October of 2018 Netflix. If you’ve watched the first season, you’re probably looking for whether Netflix is has renewed for season 2 and when it’ll be on Netflix. Here’s what we know.
Netflix has dabbled in horror series up until this point but has mainly relied on the likes of American Horror Story for its horror lineup. This show has changed the game.
The show comes from Mike Flanagan who has become a legendary horror director in recent years with hits like Ouja, Hush and more under his belt. Mike is currently scheduled to be working on a sequel of The Shining as he discussed in a recent interview.
Does the story warrant a season 2?
While there are still a few loose threads, most could and are making the case the series ended with a satisfying conclusion. The story ended on a bittersweet note with the death of the Crain’s father Hugh, he had reunited with his Wife and Daughter and in death, they could be together forever in Hill House.
The Haunting of Hill House Season 2 Renewal Status
Official Renewal Status: Renewed (Last updated: February 22nd, 2019)
Netflix has officially renewed for a second season! Like many have suspected the next season will not continue the story of the Crane family. Instead, the series will continue as an Anthology thus the story will take place in a different home with new characters.
The Haunting of Hill House was adapted from the novel of the same name. Season 2 will adapt from the novel The Turn of the Screw to which the second season has officially been given the name of The Haunting of Bly Manor.

When would season 2 release on Netflix?
As seen in the tweet above the next season isn’t expected until 2020. Which month the series will arrive is anyone’s guess but the likely release date is potentially Halloween. This of course entirely depends on when production begins and ends.
How have fans reacted to the renewal news?
Naturally, a show like The Haunting of Hill House left fans wanting. The fact that the first season had concluded left many worrying the series was going to be limited and end after only one season. The relief that the show will be returning has been expressed online by many fans:

Looks like subsequent Haunting of Hill House seasons will center on new characters & new locations, with Netflix going the anthology route with the general “The Haunting” framework. As someone who LOVED the 1st season and felt it told a perfect, complete story, this pleases me.
