What does Mike have to say about the 3rd Season of the Haunting?
Mike has a very tight schedule; he is not only the creator of The Haunting but also has several other projects about to be released. Mike has announced that for now, he has no plans for a new season of the haunting. However, he says that if there is a third installment of The Haunting series by Netflix, it will be very different from anything we have seen before.
Mike has been covering up the schedules for Midnight Mass which is also an anthology series set in the same horror genre.
So, we will not be seeing the third season anytime soon, but until then, Netflix has The Haunting of Bly Manor to watch, which is even scarier than the previous two seasons.
What is the Haunting’s Storyline?
The Haunting is based on the 1959 novel The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson.
The series follows the events that are related to five individuals in two different timelines, who explore paranormal activities in an abandoned mansion, Hill House. This is one of America’s most haunted houses, which was last occupied by Hugh Crain and Olivia Crain, along with their five children, Steven, Shirley, Theodora (Theo), Luke, and Eleanor (Nell), move in and renovates the mansion. The family is soon terrorized by the paranormal activity that is taking place in and around Hill House, and they flee away.
Twenty-six years later, the Crain siblings and their estranged father reunite after another tragedy, and they are forced to confront the ghosts of their past.
Who Will be Seen in the Future Projects of the Haunting?
The major part of the series casts Michiel Huisman, Elizabeth Reaser, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Kate Siegel, and Victoria Pedretti.
As of now, there are no new projects announced for future seasons. So, we cannot be sure who will be seen in the future projects of The Haunting. But we can surely expect the original cast members to be seen in future projects.
