The Haunting of Hill House hasn’t been confirmed for a second season at the moment, possibly because it hasn’t even been a month since the first season hit Netflix. The first season was added to Netflix on October 12, but viewers who have watched the first season are already wondering if a second season is coming.
On Twitter, viewers are freaked out by the show, revealing that they are hooked and can’t sleep alone. Some people are also revealing they are sad that they are wrapping up the first season.
Given these reactions, a second season will surely follow. While Netflix hasn’t released the numbers, it seems that viewers are digging the show.

The first season of The Haunting of Hill House didn’t end with a major cliffhanger where a second season would be ideal to explain the outcome. However, other successful shows don’t end with cliffhangers and still continue to film additional seasons.
If a second season is given the approval from Netflix, it’s possible that the show will arrive in about a year. The first season started filming in October 2017 and was released a year later. The sooner Netflix gives a thumbs up for the second season, the sooner it may be released.
This could indicate that a second season could be released in November 2019, but with the potential of a December or even January 2020 release date.
Since the first season wrapped the way it did, the second season could be something completely different. And Digital Spy reports that the cast members are open to new ideas, including an anthology-style show, or even a relocation.
“It’ll be interesting to see what Mike [Flanagan] and Netflix and Paramount, what they all decide to do,” Oliver Jackson-Cohen, who plays Luke Crane, has revealed about the potential of a second season.
“There’s millions of different options, they could continue on and have it a couple of years on and how the remaining Cranes are dealing with it,” Crane continued.
“They could go back and tell the story of the Hills at Hill House, they could do an anthology. There’s so many options that they can toy with here which I think makes it so exciting to be part of a show like this.”
