The Haunting of Hill House arrived on Netflix as a surprise Halloween gift for the viewers. Filled with spine-chilling ghosts, this series will keep you up at night. Since the first season had such a definitive ending, we did not expect another season of the series. But what could be better than the renewal of our favorite spooky series! Fortunately, the creator of the first series of “The Haunting of Hill House” Mike Flanagan, has found a way to terrify us again with part two of the series. Season 2 would air by the name of “ The Haunting of Bly Manor”. Here’s all you need to know about the upcoming series.
“The Haunting of Bly Manor” – Release Date
After watching the first season, it is really hard to wait for part 2. We can assure you that it is coming in 2020 but what has no clue of the exact date of release. The ill-effects of the current pandemic have cast its shadow literally everywhere, but the creators of “The Haunting of Bly Manor” seem to have dodged the bullet. The creator of the show, Mike Flanagan, took to Twitter to congratulate the cast and the crew of “The Haunting of Bly Manor” for wrapping up the shooting right before the shut-down. He also mentioned that “Netflix” will announce the official release date as and when they feel it suitable. We are hoping to receive the season 2 as our Halloween just like the previous year.
“The Haunting of Bly Manor” – Cast
Initially, it wasn’t clear if the original cast would be back in season 2. But, since we have learned that the story would function in a similar manner to the previous horror story, we could expect our favorite characters to bring back the chills. So far, the cast that we are certain to return include,
- Victoria Pedretti
- Oliver Jackson-cohen
- Henry Thomas
- Kate Seigel
- Catherine Parker
- Rahul Kohli
- Benjamin Evan
However, they would be accompanied by some new cast members like Amelia Smith and Benjamin Ainsworth, who would be playing the children, looked after by the governess.
The Haunting of Bly Manor: Plot
The creators of the show have established the fact that the viewers won’t be entirely familiar with this upcoming season as the story does not revolve around the Crain family anymore. Season 2 is based on Henry James’ famous novel, ‘The Turn of the Screw’ which is a story about a governess who looks after two children in a large house in a remote estate. However, with Flanagan’s work, we can assure you this is merely the tip of the iceberg. Even if you know ‘The Turn of The Screw’ really well, this series is going to get your hair-raising.
“The Haunting of Hill House” – Storyline
If you are looking for a perfect 20th-century spooky story that would make you scared of your own shadow, your search ends here! The story revolves around the Crain family who purchases a new mansion with the intention of turning it into their dream home. The real trouble starts when they start experiencing shady mishappenings due to which they are forced to abandon the house. They reunite to mourn the death of Nell. The story takes interesting turns due to which each character is forced to face their demons and come in terms with their past sins.
