While Gugino seems all in on the idea of a second season as long as Flanagan is, the creator is a little more hesitant to continue. One thing we do know for sure? The Crain family's story is done for good. "As far as I've ever been concerned with this, the story of the Crain family is told. It's done," Flanagan told Entertainment Weekly. "I felt like the Crains have been through enough, and we left them exactly as we all wanted to remember them . . . we really felt like the story demanded a certain kind of closure from us and we were happy to close the book on that family."
Before you fear all hope is lost, it seems Flanagan is still open to continuing the story in a different way. "I think that there are all sorts of different directions we could go in, with the house or with something completely different. I love the idea of an anthology as well," he said. "I think more than anything, the show is about haunted places and haunted people, as Steve says, and there's no shortage of either. So, there's any number of things we could do, in or out of Hill House."
