Fans have something splendid to look forward to this coming Halloween as Hulu unveils the trailer for Monsterland Season 1. Monsterland is Hulu’s horror Anthology adapted from Nathan Balingrud’s story collection North-American Lake Monsters. A story from this collection, The Monsters of Heaven, won 2007’s Shirley Jackson Award for Best Short Story. Mary Laws directed the film, the modern classic’s co-writer, The Neon Demon and on Succession and Preacher.
The executive producers include Babak Anvari, Megan Ellison, and Lucah Toh. Megan Ellison also worked on the last Hulu-bound Ballingrud adaptation, wounds. After David Simon’s The Plot Against America, Monsterland is Annapurna’s second primary television production in 2020.
On October 2, 2020, it was released. The eight-episode series described in the official press release is as follows an encounter with mermaids, fallen angels, and other alien beasts driving broken people to desperate acts.
The entire Monsterland Season 1 filming was in Kingston, New York, in November 2019. Owing to the horror genre’s success as the home of Blumhouse’s Into the Dark film series and Stephen King’s Castle Rock, Hulu is looking to expand the genre with more initial planning.
Monsterland has received mixed reviews from its viewers so far, but the good news is that many of them enjoyed this dramatic horror series and are eagerly anticipating Monsterland 2.
Monsterland Season 2 Release Date : When is it coming out?
Monsterland debuted on October 2, 2020, only on Hulu. All eight episodes of Season 1 are available for watching for this highly anticipated series.
There is no way of knowing whether or not a new season will be released because the Hulu network has made no statement on the subject. It is not definite yet when this show will premiere in the United Kingdom, but it should be as soon as it airs in the United States.
If Hulu decides to go forward with Monsterland 2, it might release in October of next year, as Monsterland 1 did. But, without confirmation from the production house, what can we say about it?
Monsterland Season 2 Cast : Who is gonna be in it?
Because the second season has yet to be greenlit, no casting details have been disclosed. However, if a second season is made, the first season’s cast will return, as planned.
In November 2019, an announcement regarding Kaitlyn Dever and Jonathan Tucker joining the series’s cast took place. The two will appear in the first episode. Mike Colter (Evil) joined the team in February 2020. In July 2020, it was reported that Kelly Marie Tran and Taylor Schilling had joined the series’s cast. In August 2020, an announcement regarding Nicole Beharie, Adepero Oduye, Roberta Colidrez, Hamish Linklater, and Charlie Tahan (Ozark) joining the team took place.
Monsterland Season 2 Plot : What can we expect?
Additionally to confirming the release date for Monsterland Season 2, Hulu reiterated that the series would have a connection to the fictional worlds, including walled, mermaids, fallen angels, and other creatures all intertwined. In the synopsis, broken people are driven to extreme acts to make their lives better. In an episode titled Iron River, MI, Kellie Marie stars as Lauren. She goes back to the same town where her best friend disappeared years before. Katiline Dever appears in a separate episode featuring as a struggling waitress and a young mother to a troubled child.
Until she comes across a mysterious out of turn named Alex, she sees no light at the tunnel’s end. Alex’s presence and laxity in the face of a changing identity will introduce Tony to his reality. Ultimately, the show tries to depict the thin line between man and monster.
For season 2, the show’s creators can either continue with the first season’s storyline or adapt a fresh original story, take another novel, or create their own new plot. It’s difficult for the creators to continue the first season because of the manner it was made and the tension it created. Tension is a key element in these types of horror films, which are tough to create in the time intervals between the two series.
Because Season 1 was such a hit, fans are eagerly anticipating Hulu’s renewal announcement. Because each episode of the show tells a new plot and there is no relationship between them, the viewers will be able to accept the storyline modifications made in season 2.
They might also continue to bring on the previous narrative but with a twist by altering the people in the same location where the series started.
