Set those DVRs, Hillies: The supernatural series on AMC set in Haverhill, “NOS4A2,” is gearing up for a 10-episode return following a successful freshman run, the network confirms.

Southern New Hampshire’s Joe Hill, the son of horror writer Stephen King, wrote the novel that inspired the AMC series, and has caught the attention of network brass for his “unparalleled” take on the small screen hit.

“I am so excited for the opportunity to bring the rest of Joe Hill’s amazing novel to television. Joe’s imagination is unparalleled,” the show’s executive producer Jami O’Brien said in a statement.

As WHAV previously reported, Haverhill’s role is downsized in the AMC series as compared to Hill’s 2013 novel, which features Vic McQueen (played on screen by Ashleigh Cummings) “finding” things presumed lost by crossing a condemned bridge over the Merrimack River. In the TV version, Vic is a townie, hoping to graduate high school and escape Haverhill by attending art school. Zachary Quinto costars as the seductive Charlie Manx.

Although Haverhill is the primary location of the series, related scenes were entirely shot in Rhode Island.

An airdate for the new season has yet to be announced. Season one wrapped its run on July 28, with episodes still available on AMC Premiere.
