The fantasy horror series that’s based on the comic series from Joe Hill sees three siblings move into a house with plenty of magic and secrets hidden inside. Season 1 consisted of 10 episodes, which all dropped on Netflix globally on February 7th, 2020.

There will be 10 episodes in the second season. The third season will also have 10 episodes. Both match the episode count for the first season.

This has become about average for Netflix shows, with some shows just falling short at eight episodes. Eight to 10 episodes tend to be just right for Netflix-style storytelling, and certainly make binge-watching possible, according to Netsflixlife.
