Hulu’s YA anthology series “Into the Dark” is coming back for another season. The series, made by a partnership between Blumhouse Television, features a new installment released each month inspired by a holiday. A few of the episodes from this year include “The Body,” “Flesh & Blood,” “Pooka!,” “New Year, New You,” “Down,” “Treehouse,” “I’m Just F-cking With You,” “All That We Destroy,” “Culture Shock,” and “They Come Knocking.” The latest episode in the series, “Into the Dark: School Spirit,” launched on August 2nd. Fans of the show can look forward to “Into the Dark: Pure” on September 6th.
Vulture broke the news on the second season, reporting that Hulu ordered nine new episodes of the series. The show got a great reaction when it launched in October 2018 and was a hit on social media while fans streamed the premiere episode. While a few of the holidays might repeat themselves in the second season, holiday-themed thrillers never go out of style. John Hegeman, Alexa Faigen, and Jason Blum served as executive producers on the series.
Hulu’s YA thriller slate continued to expand this year, with “Castle Rock,” “Freakish,” “Light as a Feather,” and “Safe Harbor” offering new content for subscribers. “Light as a Feather” returns on October 4th this year, followed the YA drama “Looking for Alaska” on October 18th. Hulu is also launching the first season of “Dollface” on November 15th, so keep that show on your radar as well. Going into December, Hulu is releasing the drama “Reprisal” on December 6th, followed by Season 3 of “Marvel’s Runaways” on December 13th.
If you are a horror-thriller fan, the box office should keep you busy for the next few weeks. “Ready or Not” with Adam Brody, Henry Czerny, and Andie MacDowell hits theaters this weekend, and The following weekend is the release of Jacob Aaron Estes’ “Don’t Let Go” with David Oyelowo, Storm Reid, and Alfred Molina. When we hit September, “IT: Chapter 2” is expected to take over the box office. That film stars James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Bill Hader, Isaiah Mustafa, Jay Ryan, James Ransone, and Andy Bean. Reprising their roles as the original members of the Losers Club are Jaeden Martell, Wyatt Oleff, Jack Dylan Grazer, Finn Wolfhard, Sophia Lillis, Chosen Jacobs, and Jeremy Ray Taylor. Bill Skarsgård returns as Pennywise for the movie.
There are several specialty releases to look for next month, including “Depraved” from IFC, “Freaks” with Emile Hirsch and Bruce Dern, and “Monos” from Neon.” Check your local listings in September to see if these thrillers are coming to your area.
