If, like a few of us at FTN HQ, you’re one of those people trying to make peace with the terror of Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House, then we have good news for you.

It looks like the series which everyone is talking about won’t be coming back for a second season… and that’s a good thing!

Based on Shirley Jackson’s terrifying novel, the show’s creator Mike Flanagan has made it pretty clear that he has told the story.

“As far as I’ve ever been concerned with this, the story of the Crain family is told. It’s done,” he says.

Although, he did say he’d like to do another series that could tell a different story  maybe around the house or in a totally different way, but he adds “I felt like the Crains have been through enough and we left them exactly as we all wanted to remember them, those of us who worked on it.”

It feels like in a world where shows and ideas are milked to death, it would be a bold, fresh idea to create a chow, tell a story and close the book, doesn’t it?

Let us know if you want more from this particular Halloween trick and treat.

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
