Netflix has shared the first teaser trailer for its upcoming series The Haunting of Bly Manor, which serves as the second season of The Haunting of Hill House. If you enjoyed that first season of the anthology horror series, chances are you’re going to love The Hunting of Bly Manor.
This first trailer teases the kind of creepy-ass nightmare that we can expect from the story and it looks like it’s going to be pretty damn scary. The series comes from The Haunting of Hill House creator Mike Flanagan and producer Trevor Macy and this is the synopsis that was shared:
THE HAUNTING OF BLY MANOR, the next highly anticipated chapter of The Haunting anthology series, 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.
The Haunting of Bly Manor is an adaptation of the 1898 novel by Henry James, The Turn of the Screw. It will also include elements of “dozens” of James’ other horror stories. It was also explained that while Hill House “was the story of family struggle and trauma, Bly Manor is about broken hearts that never heal and tragic star-crossed romance.” You can read more about what we can expect from the story for Bly Manor here.
The trailer also reveals that the series will premiere on Netflix on October 9th, 2020! Hill House one my favorite form of entertainment that was released in 2018. I really hope that Bly Manor ends up being just as good!
