Thought 'The Haunting of Hill House' was scary? Wait till you see the next season of the Netflix horror anthology!
In case you don't already know, the Netflix show which scared the living daylights out of people last year is coming back with another season and according to the creator Mike Flanagan, this one is going to be even SCARIER!
In a recent interview with Birth. Movies. Death., Mike spilled the beans about the upcoming installment of the horror anthology and made us more excited for The Haunting of Bly Manor than ever!
"For Henry James fans, it’s going to be pretty wild, and for people who aren’t familiar with his work, it’s going to be unbelievably scary. I already think it’s much scarier than season one, so I’m very excited about it,” Mike told the site.
“We’re looking at all the ghost stories of Henry James as the jumping-off point for the season, so it very much is a whole new deal. It’s a cool way to expand on some of the things I loved about season one, but within the framework of new story, without having to be restrained by the decisions we made last time.”
The Bly Manor will be based on Henry's horror novella The Turn of the Screw. If you have not read the book, the plot of the gothic novel revolves around a haunted mansion, two orphaned kids and a governess. As per the cast, The Crains are coming back to haunt you once again, only this time, they will be playing different characters!
Victoria Pedretti, our very own Nell, is gearing up to scare people worldwide once again and has officially joined the star cast of The Haunting of Hill House's next installment - The Haunting of Bly Manor.

Oliver Jackson-Cohen aka Luke Crain is following his on-screen sister's footsteps as well and coming to visit the haunted manor. He will be playing the character of Peter in Mike Flanagan's horror anthology's next chapter, as reported by The Wrap.
Carla Gugino, the actress who brilliantly played the scary Olivia Crain, has teased that she may or may not be in talks with Mike for playing a role but her return is not confirmed yet.
“Well, I can’t say anything definitive at this point, other than Mike and I really love collaborating and working together and any opportunity where a schedule allows for us to do that, we will. I would be honored to. So we’re talking a lot about it and we’ll just see if all schedules allow. All I can say is I’m very excited for Season Two and to see what Mike does,” Carla revealed.
According to DreadCentral, the show will begin production this September and we cannot wait to finally see what season 2 has in store for us. The Haunting of Hill House was such a MAJOR success for Netflix that not only did the streaming service renew the show for another season, but it has also asked Mike to keep creating content for the network.

“Mike Flanagan and Trevor Macy are masterful at creating authentically frightening stories that leave audiences on the edge of their seats but unable to look away,” Cindy Holland, vice president, Original Content at Netflix told ComicBook. “We’re excited to continue our partnership with them on ‘The Haunting’ series and future projects to come." Are you excited for season two? It will hit Netflix next year, scarier than ever.
