Netflix has released the chilling first trailer for The Haunting of Bly Manor – the second season of Mike Flanagan’s horror anthology series which began with The Haunting of Hill House. Season 2 of The Haunting series will be released on October 9 and is loosely based on the 1898 horror novel The Turn of the Screw by Henry James.Expect creepy children singing creepy songs and playing with creepy dolls, a beautiful but creepy country estate, and some very creepy things moving around in the dark. Watch the Haunting of Bly Manor trailer above or below:Here’s how Netflix describes The Haunting of Bly Manor, which is set in 1980s England: “After an au pair’s tragic death, Henry Wingrave (Henry Thomas) hires a young American nanny (Victoria Pedretti) to care for his orphaned niece and nephew (Amelie Bea Smith, Benjamin Evan Ainsworth) who reside at Bly Manor with the estate’s chef Owen (Rahul Kohli), groundskeeper Jamie (Amelia Eve) and housekeeper, Mrs. Grose (T’Nia Miller). But all is not as it seems at the manor, and centuries of dark secrets of love and loss are waiting to be unearthed in this chilling gothic romance. At Bly Manor, dead doesn’t mean gone.”
Several cast members from The Haunting of Hill House are returning for Season 2 to play new characters – which is a completely standalone story separate from the Hill House tale – including Pedretti (who played Nell Crain in Hill House), Thomas (who played the young Hugh Crain), Oliver Jackson-Cohen (who played Luke Crain), and Kate Siegel (who played Theo Crain). New additions to the cast include Tahirah Sharif, Kohli, Eve, Miller, Smith, and Ainsworth.
The Haunting of Hill House Season 2: First Look at The Haunting of Bly Manor
Creator Mike Flanagan previously revealed that Bly Manor will draw from more than one of James’ stories, and will use the novel as a “jumping-off point” for its haunted house tale. “It’s a cool way to expand on some of the things I loved about Season 1, but within the framework of a new story, without having to be restrained by the decisions we made last time. For Henry James fans, it’s going to be pretty wild, and for people who aren’t familiar with his work, it’s going to be unbelievably scary. I already think it’s much scarier than Season 1, so I’m very excited about it.”
The Haunting of Bly Manor will be released worldwide on Netflix on October 9, 2020.
