Netflix this week gave horror fans some insight into The Haunting of Bly Manor, the highly anticipated follow-up to Mike Flanagan’s The Haunting of Hill House.
The anthology series–which will starting streaming on Netflix Oct. 9–will bring back several actors from Hill House, playing different roles in a completely different storyline, according to comicbook.com.
And, to give viewers a better idea of what to expect from this new series, Netflix rolled out the show’s first trailer, which can be viewed below.
The Haunting of Bly Manor–overseen by Flanagan and producer Trevor Macy–is set in 1890s England and draws on the supernatural stories of Henry James. The official synopsis explains that “after an au pair’s death, Henry Wingrave hires a young American nanny to care for his orphaned niece and nephew, who reside at Bly Manor with the estate’s chef Owen, groundskeeper Jamie and housekeeper Mrs. Grose.”
But, as the synopsis relates, “all is not as it seems at the manor, and centuries of dark secrets are waiting to be unearthed in this chilling gothic romance. At Bly Manor, dead doesn’t mean gone.”
The ensemble cast includes Victoria Pedretti, Henry Thomas, Amelie Bea Smith, Benjamin Evan Ainsworth, Rahul Kohli, Amelia Eve, T’Nia Miller, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Kate Siegel and Tahirah Sharif.
