Looks like we have another year of nightmares coming in the near future. Blumhouse’s horror anthology series Into the Dark has been renewed for a second season at Hulu, according to Vulture.
- Into the Dark launched last October, with a new episode coming out each month, focused on a holiday or occasion from that month.
- Season one will end with the September episode, titled “Pure,” which will hit Hulu on September 6.
- You can read Mack’s reviews of each of ten of the previous 11 episodes, including the most recent episode, “School Spirit.”
- For some of the new episodes, Blumhouse will reportedly be looking into the idea of “quasi-sequels” for some of the fan-favorite characters from the series.
- Twelve new episodes of the series will begin hitting Hulu this October and running through September 2020.
What they’re saying:
- Blumhouse TV Co-President Marci Wiserman: “What we want to replicate is the kind of the filmmaker-driven vision for the films. We’ve brought Hulu filmmakers who are vision first, script later, and they have been unbelievable partners in letting us build this collection.”
- Hulu Vice President Jordan Helman: “Into the Dark allows us to super-serve one of our most engaged and passionate audiences.”
- Wiserman on the range of topics used for Into the Dark: “The idea is diversity of entertainment within the collection rather than sameness. We lean into the fact that it’s a fun experience to come every month and you don’t quite know what’s coming, rather than seeing something expected.”
- Wiserman on selecting artists to create these episodes: “This is really an opportunity to have people who are iconoclasts or people who don’t work within the system traditionally to come and work with us in a very regimented system with all this infrastructure. They get to really play within that system to see their kind of creative vision.”
