A masterpiece by Mike Flanagan, The Haunting of Hill House season 2, also better known as The Haunting of Bly Manor, is coming soon in 2020, as revealed by Netflix.
However, the next season would not focus on the Crain family from season 1 but have different stories in every episode, just like American Horror Story.
This means we would no longer get to see Steve, Shirley, Theo, Nell, and Luke because The Haunting of Hill House season 2 will focus on The Haunting of Bly Manor.
In the teaser, we hear a quote “The terrace and the whole place, the lawn and the garden beyond it, all I could see of the park, were empty with a great emptiness,” It is taken from chapter four of The Turn of the Screw, the horror novella, written by Henry James set in the estate of Bly Manor.
Now we are waiting for the trailer which would reveal more information about the show.
“I THINK OF TURNING OF THE SCREW AS THE BACKBONE OF THIS SEASON – THE THROUGH-LINE THAT CARRIES US FROM BEGINNING TO END. BUT WE GET TO GO OFF INTO THE JOLLY CORNER AND THE ROMANCE OF CERTAIN OLD CLOTHES, AND SO MANY OTHER OF THESE WONDERFUL GHOST STORIES THAT PEOPLE HAVEN’T SEEN ADAPTED BEFORE. IT’S ALL WRAPPED UP IN WHAT SEEMS TO BE FAMILIAR, BUT THAT FAMILIARITY GOES AWAY REALLY EARLY IN THE FIRST EPISODE. IT SAYS, ‘WE’RE OFF ON A WHOLE OTHER ROAD.”
Flanagan said that there’s “no upside” to making a straight adaptation of Turn of the Screw. “It’s been fascinating to have this much bigger canvas because you’re not going to do better than The Innocents anyway,” he continues, referencing the 1961 movie, which goes by the same name.
The Haunting Of Hill House Season 2 Release Date
There has not been any official announcement about the release date, but we expect it to come sometime near October 2020.
