The plot of The Haunting of Hill House 3
The third season of the series will in fact be based on the popular tale of Edgar Allan Poe The fall of the Usher house but, as it happened with The Haunting of Bly Manor, the show will also draw inspiration from other stories by the writer.
Flanagan will be the executive producer of the new series which, this time around, will consist of a total of 8 episodes (4 of which will be directed by the director himself). Executive producer Michael Fimognari will direct the other four episodes, while the series is also produced by Trevor Macy, Emmy Grinwis And Melinda Nishioka.
The Fall of the House of Usher will be a standalone series and will have no connection with previous series.
We leave you with the plot de The fall of the Usher house, in case you’ve never read Edgar Allan Poe’s short story:
Peter receives a letter from Roderick Usher, his childhood friend. In the letter, the man asks him, in a pleading tone, to join him in his family home. The meeting with the old friend is sad, because Roderick Usher is clearly ill. His appearance is pale, emaciated; his nerves are exposed and he lives in a perpetual state of anxiety. His twin sister, Lady Madeleine, is also in desperate condition and will pass away after a few days. Roderick, in the throes of a lucid delirium, decides to preserve the body of his beloved sister from the indiscretion of the doctors and, after convincing his friend to help him, buries it in the basement of the house. Days pass and Roderick perceives something macabre and horrible.
