Watch The Trailer For 'The Haunting Of Bly Manor' Coming To Netflix October 9
This article is more than one year old.
Netflix have confirmed that season two of their original supernatural series 'The Haunting Of Hill House', will land on the streaming platform in 2020.
At the end of the last season the Crain family had a final showdown with the spirits of Hill House and the story came to a nice neat ending, which is why the second season will focus on a completely different story with no connection to season one, and will have all new characters - although there will be some familiar faces.
Season two, entitled 'The Haunting of Bly Manor', will draw inspiration from Henry James' 1898 psychological horror 'The Turn Of The Screw'. The strange and sinister story unfolds from the perspective of a governess who is hired to take care of two orphan children living in an old country mansion.
It feels like a long wait since the first season came to an end. This is because the show's creator, Mike Flanagan has been busy directing a sequel to the classic movie 'The Shining'. It's based on Stephen King's book of the same name, 'Doctor Sleep'. The movie was released last November, allowing Mike to focus his attention on the Netflix supernatural series as part of a multi-year deal with him and executive producer Trevor Macy.
Netflix's vice president of original content said, "Mike Flanagan and Trevor Macy are masterful at creating authentically frightening stories that leave audiences on the edge of their seats, but unable to look away. We're excited to continue our partnership with them on 'The Haunting' series and future projects to come."
As 'The Haunting' series now takes on an anthology feel, it means that some familiar faces will be returning for the new season, but this time in completely new roles.
It's already been confirmed that Victoria Pedretti who played Nellie will be back in the lead roll for 'Bly Manor' playing the manor's governess, Dani.
It's also been revealed that Oliver Jackson-Cohen, who played Luke in season one, will return in the new season. He'll take on the role of Peter Quint, another employee at Bly Manor.
The show's creators have also promised that this time round the show will get a lot more scary. If you loved the subtle ghosts hidden in season one, then there's plenty more of that to come. Mike said, "we're having an enormous amount of fun talking about how to take some of the ideas from season one about hidden ghosts and things like that, and find new gears for them this time."
Although the characters and setting will change, the show is likely to have a similar feel, Mike explains, "it'll be the same type of story, and we'll treat the ghosts very much the same way."
