American anthology supernatural horror drama web television, The Haunting of Hill House, was very well received by the fans and critics and became an instant hit when it aired on Netflix in October 208. Since then fans are waiting to see the second season but their bad as it has been over a year and a half and yet Netflix hasn’t released the second season of The Haunting of Hill House.
The first season is loosely based on the 1959 novel of the same name by Shirley Jackson. The plot alternates between two timelines, following five adult siblings whose paranormal experiences at Hill House continue to haunt them in the present day, and flashbacks depicting events leading up to the eventful night in 1992 when the family fled from the mansion.
As per the latest updates, Netflix completed the shooting of the series and it is now in post-production. However, the coronavirus pandemic has delayed the release of the series. The post-production team is finding it enough to edit the videos as they operating from their home amid lockdown.
A fan asked on twitter about the release date of The Haunting of Hill House season 2, to which Mike Flanagan replied that work is going on and hopefully they will be able to finish the work before the deadline. He also revealed that the show is taking place beautifully and viewers can expect even more thrill in the second season.
“Going great. Still on schedule, we wrapped before the shutdown and post production has carrying on from home. The show is shaping up wonderfully, I’m thrilled with it. At the moment no reason to think it’ll be pushed, Netflix will announce the release date when they’re ready,” wrote on twitter.

The Haunting of Hill House is taken from the 1898 classic story, The Turn of the Screw. The book, penciled by Henry James, has been extensively considered among the best horror tales in all of literature. The plot of the book revolves around a tutor that comes to an English nation estate to care for the young Miles and Flora. As everything seems to be normal in the beginning, scary events progressively start to begin.
The tale has been adapted a couple of times in the past, consisting of The Innocents (1961), as well as a web-movie produced by the BBC in 2009. No footage of the show has been disclosed yet. However, Mike Flanagan did previously hint that he believes period 2 will be much scarier than season 1. The actors consist of Henry Thomas, Kate Siegel, Catherine Parker, T’Nia Miller, Rahul Kohli, Amelia Eve, Benjamin Ainsworth and Amelie Smith.
