Following “The Haunting of Hill House” and “The Haunting of Bly Manor,” Mike Flanagan says there are no plans for any future installments…
It appears “The Haunting” is over at Netflix … at least for now.
Following the success of the anthology series “The Haunting of Hill House” and “The Haunting of Bly Manor,” creator Mike Flanagan revealed on Wednesday that he didn’t plan to return for another installment.
Responding to a fan on Twitter, Flanagan broke the news, much to the dismay of viewers who made the two previous “Haunting” series among the most watched shows on Netflix.
“At the moment there are no plans for more chapters,” Flanagan wrote. “Never say never, of course, but right now we are focused on a full slate of other Intrepid projects for 2021 and beyond. If things change we will absolutely let everyone know!”

Intrepid is Flanagan’s production company where he’s lined up several high profile projects over the next few years.
He just recently revealed that production on his next series “Midnight Mass” wrapped up in mid-December with that series slated to land on Netflix. “Midnight Mass” is centered around an isolated island community that experiences supernatural events after the arrival of a mysterious priest.
Following “Midnight Mass,” Flanagan will then prepare to adapt the book “The Midnight Club” into another series that’s planned at Netflix. That story revolves around a group of terminally ill teenagers, who gather late at night to tell each other scary stories. Eventually, the teens make a pact that whoever dies first will attempt to reach out to the rest of the group from beyond the grave.
With those two series keeping him busy for now, Flanagan doesn’t currently plan on returning with another “Haunting” series but obviously that could change at some point in the future.
As of now, there’s no release date for “Midnight Mass” but with production wrapped, Flanagan and his team will begin post-production work to get that series ready for Netflix but the debut date is still to be determined.
