Otherwise known as The Haunting of Bly Manor – because that’s what it’s called – the continuation from Hill House is hotly anticipated and has began filming.

Based on Shirley Jackson’s 1959 novel of the same name, The Haunting of Hill House was a huge success, coming out on Netflix last October and terrifying people all over the world.

It was frequently dubbed “the scariest TV ever” and though a few people in the comments may say “lol it wasn’t scary at all,” ignore them because they’re probably the kind of people who would eat a Starburst without taking the wrapper off.


The Haunting of Bly Manor will be based on the Henry James 1898 novel The Turn of the Screw, which Mike Flanagan has adapted into an anthology series, not dissimilar to American Horror Story.

People are very excited for what they’re going to get from the sequel, and maybe some set pictures might shine a light on the upcoming tale as filming as started!

Sharing the news on Twitter, show creator Mike Flanagan wrote:


Seven years ago today – it was the first day of production on OCULUS. Today is the second day of production on THE HAUNTING OF BLY MANOR. Feeling very grateful to be here.”



What is The Haunting of Bly Manor about?

As stated, The Haunting of Bly Manor is based on the novel The Turn of the Screw, by Henry James, which focuses on “a governess who, caring for two children at a remote estate, becomes convinced that the grounds are haunted.”

Oliver Jackson-Cohen, who played the grown-up Luke in Hill House, told The Wrap:


All I can say is that Bly Manor is going to be incredible. It’s a very, very exciting story from what I’ve heard.

Who will be in The Haunting of Bly Manor?

Victoria Pedretti, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Henry Thomas and Kate Siegel will all be returning, but interestingly will be playing completely new characters, much like how the likes of Lady Gaga and Evan Peters star in American Horror Story.

When will The Haunting of Bly Manor be out?

The Haunting of Bly Manor is expected to arrive on Netflix in 2020.

Probably October, since Twitter rebranded that month “Spooky Season”.
