I’ve only just gotten around to begin watching Mike Flanagan’s TV series The Haunting of Hill House, and am suitably impressed after seeing the first two episodes. Our reviewer David S. Smith raved about it here, and he’s definitely not in the minority. However, Flanagan has already let us all know that there are currently no plans for a second season, but if Netflix and Amblin ask for one, it will definitely not include the Crains. As he said to ‘TV Line’:
“We tied up all of those threads exactly how they should be. I don’t really see a need to revisit those characters, even in cameos. I want to remember them the way we left them, and leave them to their lives”.
However, star Carla Gugino recently mentioned to ‘THR’ that Flanagan is interested in an American Horror Story-style anthology:
“Mike Flanagan said he would be interested in the notion of an anthology, where some actors come back to play different characters. I think he feels like he has told the complete story of the Crain family. But if I was invited and I was able to, I would really love to, just because I do love to collaborate with him”.
An anthology series hopefully centering around the same house sounds like a great idea to me….
