List of The Haunting of Hill House episodes

The Haunting of Bly Manor is the upcoming second season of the American anthology supernatural horror drama web television series The Haunting of Hill House. The season is created and directed by Mike Flanagan for Netflix, and will be loosely based on the 1898 horror novella The Turn of the Screw by Henry James.

The Haunting of Bly Manor entered production on September 30, 2019, and is expected to premiere on Netflix in 2020.


Development and production[edit]

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Flanagan said, "I don't want to speculate too much about season two until Netflix and Paramount and Amblin let us know if they want one. What I will say, though, is that as far as I've ever been concerned with this, the story of the Crain family is told. It's done."[6]

On February 21, 2019, Netflix renewed the series for a second season as an anthology series. Titled The Haunting of Bly Manor, it will be based on The Turn of the Screw by Henry James.[7] Though it would serve as a second season to The Haunting of Hill House, the upcoming season will be a standalone story, indicating that there will be "no dramatic link between The Haunting of Bly Manor and its predecessor."[8]It is set to premiere in 2020.[9][10]

Victoria Pedretti and Oliver Jackson-Cohen return as new characters: Pedretti in the role of Dani, "a governess who takes care of two very unusual children", and Jackson-Cohen will portray Peter, "a charming fellow".[11][12] Henry Thomas and Kate Siegel will also return for the second season in as-of-yet undisclosed roles.[13][4]

The Haunting of Bly Manor entered production on September 30, 2019,[14][15] and wrapped on February 21, 2020.[16]
