Chapelwaite Season 2

Chapelwaite Season 2: The horror genre received a new addition with the arrival of Chapelwaite. This American horror TV series undoubtedly shook the entire industry with its enthralling plot. It began airing in 2021 and created a huge buzz following its ending. The series is based on a short story written by Stephen King. It was titled Jerusalem’s Lot and was published for the first time in the ‘Night Shift.’ Besides this, the original broadcasting network Epix unexpectedly gained large numbers of viewers soon after its release. Initially, Chapelwaite was touted to be a limited series. But then its popularity and the audience demand for another season turned the tables upside down. Further, media reports claim that Epix is already developing Chapelwaite Season 2. Here’s what we know!

   

Chapelwaite follows the life of a sailor named Charles Boone. The captain, after losing his wife in a tragic accident, comes back to his town, Maine. His three children accompanied him there as well. Since Charles promised his wife to take them back, he had no choice. However, everything seemed fine until the past events and the buried dark secrets haunted them. In addition to this, the family had to suffer hatred of the locals. Moreover, the series was apparently a period drama. This particular aspect added more depth to the horror elements, and everything seemed so realistic. Nonetheless, it seemed like Chapelwaite would face hindrances in its popularity because it was almost released during the after-effects of Midnight Mass. But the former created its own fan base over its captivating ending.

Talking about the current status, the original network Epix has already picked the series for another season. In February 2022, the officials confirmed the arrival of Chapelwaite Season 2, and since then, it has become one of the anticipated projects. Further, the network has disclosed that the series is in development back in 2022. However, it has been more than a year since we heard the formal statement. Hence, we are expecting the upcoming installment to have finished its filming part. It might be possible that the new batch of episodes will be in the final stage.

Chapelwaite Season 1: Ending Explained!

Although the bleak ending of the mini-series did not bother the critical reception, the only misfortune of Chapelwaite was its release on a small streaming platform. The climax was brutal and tragic and followed the typical setting of the horror genre. The vampires and hereditary curse formed the most part of the story.

Charles joined hands with George, Rebecca Morgan, and others who lived in the Preacher’s town. He planned on attacking Jakub’s Church. Meanwhile, he was deceived by his own cousin, Stephen. He was already dead but got transformed into a vampire. The dead cousin revealed that he intended to bring Charles and his family to the town for a special purpose. The vampire wanted to search for a book titled De Vermis Mysteriis. The book was lost for a long time, and none had a clue about it. As the story proceeded, the audience realized that the Boone family had a curse whom they had been living with for years and generations.

Coming back to the attack plan, Charles executed the attack on the church. He discovered a way of killing vampires. He came to know that vampires can lose their life if something fatal affects their hearts. Nevertheless, it was not easy for Charles to enter the church, and hence, George sacrificed his life following lots of bloodshed. But later, Loa helped him in fighting Jakub, who died after the whaler cut his head off from his body.

What Will Happen In Chapelwaite Season 2?

The climax shows the transformation of Charles into a vampire as he sacrifices himself for the long-lost book. This meant that his mortal life finally ended, and this might prevent his generation from the curse. Also, his children will no longer face the consequences of the haunting secret. As far as the narrative of Chapelwaite Season 2 is concerned, Chapelwaite is likely to show up with another plot from the collection of Stephen’s short stories. If it happens, new locations and towns will be explored.

Which Actors Are Expected To Return In The Next Season?

In the last installment, Adrien Brody led the cast by playing the lead role of Captain Charles Boone. Emily Hampshire portrayed the character of Rebecca Morgan, while Sirena Gulamgaus joined the cast as Loa Boone. Besides them, Jennifer Ens, Ian Ho, and Julian Richings were featured as Honor Boone, Tane Boone, and Philip Boone, respectively. The other actors in the series were Christopher Heyerdahl, Eric Peterson, Gord Rand, and a few more.
