‘The Haunting Of Bly Manor’ Wrapped, Ready To Go

The continuing saga of a very special haunting is all set for a second season, only in a different house.

The Haunting Of Bly Manor, the second season of The Haunting Of Hill House horror anthology on Netflix, wrapped production before the COVID-19 crisis hit and is just waiting for a release date.

This great news for horror fans comes from series creator/director Mike Flanagan per a report on ComingSoon.net.

Flanagan (also known for his work on the Stephen King-inspired film Doctor Sleep) recently wrote that the next season is “on schedule. We wrapped before the shutdown, and post-production has carried on from home.”

The show, he added, is ” shaping up wonderfully. I’m thrilled with it. At the moment, no reason to think it’ll be pushed (back). Netflix will announce the release date when they’re ready”
The Haunting Of Bly Manor, the second installment of this popular horror anthology, is based on “The Turn of the Screw,” the famed gothic horror novella by Henry James. Flanagan added that the upcoming season also will feature adaptations of several of James’ other horror tales.

As explained, the season will follow two young orphans who are watched over by a young governess, who narrates most of the story.

The second season cast includes Victoria Pedretti, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Henry Thomas, Catherine Parker, T’Nia Miller, Rahul Kohli, Amelia Eve, Benjamin Ainsworth and Amelie Smith.

The first season of Flanagan’s anthology, The Haunting Of Hill House, drew from Shirley Jackson’s novel of the same name.

That story dealt with siblings who grew up in what would one day be the most famous haunted house in the country. Now as adults, they struggle to face the ghosts from their past, some of which may prowl Hill House itself. Creepy!

All in all, the second season of this frightening series promises to keep horror fans glued to Netflix. Be sure to stay with Horror News Network for updates on the release date for The Haunting Of Bly Manor.
