It Looks Like A Second Series Of The Haunting Of Hill House Is On Its Way

The Haunting Of Hill House might've come to painstakingly emotional end that seemed to tie up pretty much all of its loose ends, but it turns out the horror series is far from over.

While some viewers have been left unable to sleep at the sheer horror of what goes on behind the red room door, Carla Guingo who plays Olivia Crain in the Netflix original, is very optimistic she'll return to Hill House in the future.

"Mike Flanagan said he would be interested in the notion of an anthology, where some actors come back to play different characters," she told The Hollywood Reporter.

"I think he feels like he has told the complete story of the Crain family. But if I was invited and I was able to, I would really love to, just because I do love to collaborate with him."

This comes after Carla's onscreen husband, Michiel Huisman, revealed the cast had already had conversations about what a second series would look like.

"I think that one of the crazy things about Mike is that he is an infinite well of ideas and stories. I don't think he ever sleeps. There are possibilities - if the show is a hit - to create a second season and still be in this world of Hill House."

There is in fact a possibility that The Haunting Of Hill House could follow in the footsteps of American Horror Story, in making anthology entries and spin-offs.

He continued: "But I could also totally see [Flanagan] pitch an idea where we just do a spin-off. Film an anthology series and take it in a completely different direction. We have to wait and see. That's one of the cool things about Netflix, they're open to anything."

Just when we thought our sleeping pattern was going to go back to normal...
