For season 2 this year, the horror show’ The Haunting of Hill House’ is heading to Netflix. The next chapter introduces a radically new story and characters from the first season.
It will be shown in an anthology-style for American Horror Story-Esque, so the new season is called the Haunting of Bly Manor with a completely original story underway.
The first season it was premiered on 12 October 2018 at Netflix. The Haunting of Hill House received critical acclaim, particularly for its values of success, direction, and development, which many declared a high fantasy.
No official release date of season two is announced. If the first season schedule is implemented, the second season will be finished by October 2020 and will be postponed by early 2021.
It has already been confirmed that Oliver Jackson-Cohen and Victoria Pedretti, who played Luke and Nell Crain in Hill House. Jackson Cohen is featured as a beautiful man named Peter, and Pedretti is going to play a governess named Dani.
Season 2 will see some more stars, Henry Thomas, as the Young Hugh Crain, Kate Siegel as the adult Theodora Crain and Catherine Parker as the Poppy Hill ghost.
For the new season, Flanagan has also hired new faces. In the second season, Amelia Eve, Michael Socha, and T’Nia Miller will be the new stars. iZombie star Rahul Kohli is said to play the role of a little town guy with a dull attitude who has returned to the land to care for her depressed mother.
Will It Be The Scariest Series?
A new cast of characters will then introduce the Haunting of Bly Manor and a new location and plot. But, that doesn’t mean it won’t feel like the first season.
So the Crains may be gone, but we still loved the show, the bone-chilling fears that are deep-down.
The title of season 2, ‘The Haunting of Bly Manor,’ is provided by Henry James novel ‘The turn of the screw’ in 1898 that highlights the story of two children, Miles and Flora, cared for by a young governess and a narrator.
Earlier, Flanagan explained, “It’s scary. It’s much more disturbing on a visceral level.”
