IS THERE ANY CHANCE OF A SEASON 3 OF THE HAUNTING?
Although we can say that no plannings for The Haunting season 3 are currently available, Mike Flanagan has given some hints about returning to the series at some point in time if everything goes according to expectations. while giving an interview to Entertainment Weekly about his upcoming series Midnight Mass, Flanagan mentioned that he and his producer Trevor Macy are looking for the appropriate storyline to tune in to revive the series, one that resonates with The Haunting of Hill House and The Haunting of Bly Manor themes.
On asking if there is gonna be any appearance for The Haunting season 3, Flanagan rewound the same thing he declared last December: unfortunately, The Haunting season 3 is not on his wish list. But, Flanagan continued that a third season can make its appearance later sometime if he and Macy found the appropriate source for their storyline. As Flanagan puts it, “one of the things that define the Haunting anthology for me is that both of them so far are about updating and riffing on existing classic literature.”
Selecting a Novel is not an easy job, though, as a third season of The Haunting is expected to make a strong sense about the series’ motto that ghosts are just a reflection of psychological oppression and trauma of humans. According to Flanagan, “if the stars align in such a way that we decide to go back into the Haunting world, it would have to be so much on that track that we’ve set up.” The filmmaker also incorporates the right conditions for the third season by emphasizing that “there will have to be a proper piece of IP, there will have to be a proper ghost story, and it will have to really fit Bly and Hill House.”
