Get Behind-The-Scenes Peek Into Haunted ‘Bly Manor’

Mike Flanagan’s next horror anthology is all set to debut on Netflix early next month–and the behind-the-scenes video on this page is just what fans have been waiting for.

The Haunting of Bly Manor–premiering on Netflix Oct. 9–will serve as the second season of Flanagan’s wildly popular 2018 The Haunting of Hill House, as reported by And, according to all the hints dropped over the last few months, Bly Manor will be as chilling as Hill House–only with new stories and characters.

Bly Manoras reported here in Horror News Network–is based on Henry James’ 1898 The Turn of the Screw, and will be led by Flanagan and executive producers Trevor Macy, Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey.

The storyline kicks in after an au pair’s death that leads to Henry Wingate (Henry Thomas) hiring American nanny Dani Clayton (Victoria Pedretti) to care for his niece Flora (Amelie Bea Smith) and nephew Miles (Benjamin Evan Ainsworth). The children live in Bly Manor (of course) with chef Owen (Rahul Kohli), groundskeeper Jamie (Amelie Eve) and housekeeper Mrs. Grose (T’Nia Miller).

But, as the official synopsis reveals, “all is not as it seems at the manor, and centuries of dark secrets of love and loss are waiting to be unearthed. At Bly Manor, dead doesn’t mean gone.” The cast is rounded out by Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Kate Siegel and Tahirah Sharif.

The Haunting of Bly Manor seems to be in good hands–Flanagan’s horror credentials are pretty impressive. He already has helmed the adaptations of Stephen King’s Gerald’s GameDoctor Sleep and Revival, as well as HushOculus and Ouija: Origin of Evil. Flanagan said Bly Manor is set apart from his other horror projects in that “at its heart, it’s a love story. It’s a gothic romance story.”
