If you’re a fan of The Haunting of Bly Manor, you can’t deny that you’ve been hoping and waiting for another season of the show. The show just has it in it to make people want more. But, the Executive Producer of this Netflix show and The Haunting of Hill House, Mike Flanagan has ended all hopes for season 3.
Mike Flanagan recently revealed that they aren’t planning to take the show forward for another season as of now. And from what has been said, it’s also possible to assume that there will be no future plans from the show.
This sad revelation came after one of the fans asked Mike about the chances of a new chapter of The Haunting of Bly Manor on Twitter. In response to the fan, Mike went on to confirm that there are currently no plans of making a new chapter. And right now, they are focussing on other projects for the upcoming year and after that.
Though he also said “never say never” and that they’ll let us know if they change their minds, this tweet strongly suggests that The Haunting of Bly Manor Chapter 3 is not going to happen as all their plans are locked for other projects.
Have a look at the Tweet in which Mike Flanagan revealed his plans.
At the moment there are no plans for more chapters. Never say never, of course, but right now we are focused on a full slate of other @intrepid projects for 2021 and beyond. If things change we will absolutely let everyone know! https://t.co/WkkSwsnFlm

Why Is The Haunting of Bly Manor Season 3 Not Happening?
Well, there’s no official statement that mentions the reason why the team has decided not to take the show forward after two magnificent seasons. The show gained so much love, appreciation, and critical acclaim for both seasons.
Hence, the reason is just not clear yet. Possibly, the writers and the creators didn’t see a scope for more amazing story establishments and didn’t wish to drag it forward just for the sake. So, this can be considered as a good decision rather than just filling the empty blocks of such a good plot with average content.
But, we still hope that the creators get a new dimension for the amazing series and come up with The Haunting of Bly Manor Season 3, even if it means that we’ll have to wait for a long time!
