You might wanna sleep with the lights on.
Pack your bags, folks, it’s time to move out of Hill House – and into the equally spooky Bly Manor. Dropping the first full trailer for the second season of the anthology series (which began with The Haunting of Hill House), Netflix has revealed just what we’re in store for next month, and it’s quite the fright.
Starring Victoria Pedretti – who had a main role in the first season and stars as Love Quinn in YOU – the new episodes will tell the story of “a young governess hired by a man to look after his niece and nephew at the family country house after they fall into his care. Arriving at the Bly estate, she begins to see apparitions that proceed to haunt the premises”. Continuing, “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”. Yep, I have chills already.
The story is loosely based on the novel The Turn of the Screw by Henry James and will leave the Crain family far behind, remaining unrelated to the first series – similar to how American Horror Story works.
Check out the creepy trailer below…
Victoria Pedretti, Henry Thomas, Oliver Jackson-Cohen and Kate Siegel are all signed on for the second season, with additions T’Nia Miller and Rahul Kohli also joining the cast.
The Haunting of Bly Manor drops on Netflix on October 9th.
