Epix will produce a second season of Chapelwaite. The miniseries is based on Stephen King’s short tale “Jerusalem’s Lot,” which takes place in the same village as King’s novel “Salem’s Lot,” which was adapted into the 1979 miniseries by Tobe Hooper. Following the loss of his wife, Charles Boone goes to Chapelwaite, his ancestral home, with his three children to pay his respects. There were mainly excellent reviews for the series, which made Epix’s late-2021 lineup stand out.
According to Variety, Chapelwaite’s second season has been confirmed by the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour in 2022. “The next season will reveal that the Boone family’s curse didn’t die with Jakub (Christopher Heyerdahl) and that De Vermis Mysteriis is as powerful as ever,” according to preliminary plot materials. Jakub, the season 1 villain, is the focus of this summary. Charles (Emily Hampshire), his partner Rebecca Morgan (Emily Hampshire), and a tiny army murder Jakub before Charles flee with De Vermis Mysteriis, a Lovecraftian book and the catalyst for the Boone curse.
The second season of Chapelwaite is believed to focus on Charles, the immortal guardian of De Vermis Mysteriis, who sacrificed himself in order to do so. As a method of protecting his children and future generations of Boones from the undead, he has decided to end his human life… A new locale could be in store for season 2, which would be a departure from King’s short narrative since Charles has already left Chapelwaite and the adjacent towns of Preacher’s Corners and Jerusalem’s Lot with De Vermis Mysteriis.
EPIX’s “Chapelwaite” may or may not return for a second season. “Jerusalem’s Lot,” Stephen King’s prequel narrative published in 1978 and based on the fictional village he introduced in Salem’s Lot, is being developed for a second season by the network, which we learned about this week!
This week at the Television Critics Association’s winter press conference, EPIX announced their upcoming development schedule, including Season 2 of “Chapelwaite,” as reported by Variety.
That curse didn’t die with Jakub (Christopher Heyerdahl) and that De Vermis Mysteriis remains as powerful as ever will be revealed in the upcoming season.

Chapelwaite Season 2 Storyline: What Can We Expect From The New Seasons?
It’s likely that the series would cover the origin tale of Pennywise, the Clown, and the beginning of the 27-year curse that plagues the little Maine town.” However, Sneider’s sources inform him that a writing group for the project is being/has been constituted, even if it hasn’t been officially approved.
It: Part One is based on the Stephen King horror novel of the same name, and the series will begin in the 1960s before the events of that movie. Pennywise the Clown’s origins are also claimed to be covered in the story. Variety also reports that the show’s creators, Andy Muschietti and Barbara Muschietti, are back on board.
Originally published in 1986, Stephen King’s epic novel was adapted into a miniseries in 1990, starring Tim Curry in the character later played by Bill Skarsgard in the films and subsequent theatrical releases.
The story takes place in the town of Derry, Maine, where a group of childhood friends known as the Losers’ Club faces out against Pennywise the deadly clown when they are children and then again when they are adults 27 years later. Fans of Stephen King’s famous novel Welcome to Derry will be thrilled to learn that a film adaptation of the story is in the works.
