A bone-chilling adaptation of horror novels has become a rarity these days. However, Mike Flanagan seems to have nailed the formula with The Haunting of Hill House. The show has now become anthological, which means that each season adapts different stories. The Netflix series debuted with its first season in October 2018, consisting of ten episodes. Also, Mike based the first season on Shirley Jackson’s famous book of the same name.
Upon release, The Haunting of Hill House collected immense plaudits. Critics and audiences alike praised the show for its concept and quality. The show also became one of Netflix’s most successful offerings.
The Haunting of Hill House Season Two: Release date
If you’re a fan of the horror show, rejoice! Netflix renewed the supernatural horror show back in February last year. The new season, titled ‘Haunting of The Bly Manor,’ aims for a release this year, as per reports. Most of the production of season two has wrapped up, and only the post-production work remains.
Due to the current circumstances, many thought that Netflix might delay the premiere of the second season. Now, we can confirm that ‘Bly Manor’ would release as per schedule. The creator of the series has also concurred, and we believe season two will most likely have a Halloween 2020 premiere.
The Haunting of Hill House Season Two: Possible cast
Regarding the cast, we are sure of many members to return. Therefore, we can now vouch for Vicotria Pedretti, Henry Thomas, Kate Siegel, and Oliver Jackson-Cohen‘s return. Furthermore, we also have information on the characters Pedretti and Jackson-Cohen plays; they portray the roles of The Governess and Peter.
Season two will also have a flurry of new actors joining the team. Benjamin Ainsworth and Amelie Smith feature as the children residing with the Governess. Other newcomers include Rahul Kohli, T’Nia Miller, and Amelia Eve, though which characters they play is still unknown.
The Haunting of Hill House Season Two: Expected plot
If you’re a fan of horror literature, you’ve undoubtedly heard of Henry James’ book, The Turn of The Screw. The famed book will be the source of the next chapter of the anthology series. However, even if you are familiar with the novel, prepare for a scare. The show will take many creative liberties. Furthermore, the showrunner has also stated that other stories of Henry James will also influence the story of The Haunting of Bly Manor.
We can say that the second season will centre around a large estate named Bly Manor. And in this distant manor, a Governess lives and looks after two children. Yet, she starts devolving into madness as the house plays with her mind. Along with the Governess, the second season will also cause viewers to question whether ghosts exist or are all in the head.
