Epix has announced that Chapelwaite will be coming back for a second season. The news comes three months after the horror drama wrapped its 10-episode freshman run.
Based on the short story 'Jerusalem's Lot' by Stephen King, the series is set in the 1850s, where Captain Charles Boone decides to relocate his family of three children to his ancestral home in the town of Preacher's Corners, Maine after his wife dies at sea. Once there, he learns about his ancestors' dark, sordid history and must confront it in order to put a stop to the darkness that has plagued the Boones for generations. A young writer finds inspiration with Boone's arrival, and applies to be governess of the infamous Chapelwaite manor in order to write about the family. This leads her to unravel a mystery that has plagued her own family for years.
