About The Haunting of Hill House Season 2
The Haunting of Hill House is a drama horror fiction series adapted from Shirley Jackson’s novel of the same name. The first season of the show was one of the biggest delights in 2018 on Netflix for horror fans. In fact, creator Mike Flanagan made a thrilling remix of the mentioned novel and ran it for 10 exciting episodes.
As a result, critics praised it, and viewers expressed love and appreciation as they are waiting for the second run. Without further ado, here are some fascinating details and expectations for season 2.
Release Date of The Haunting of Hill House Season 2
Officially, Netflix renewed the show almost exactly two years after its first release and it will be here sooner than we think. The streaming service confirmed that The Haunting of Bly Manor will debut on the 9th of October 2020; particularly, during Halloween time. To further elaborate, the production managed to successfully finish filming before the current ongoing pandemic widely spread.
In addition, regardless of the release date, the show has a brand new title. This means that it will feature a new cast of characters, a new storyline, and a new spooky setting. In fact, the creators stated that everything will look entirely different but the context will remain the same. This is kind of similar to how the show American Horror Story operates.
The Haunting of Hill House Season 2 Plot
In the same manner, The Haunting of Bly Manor is based on the work of Henry James in his The Turn of the Screw novella which was released in 1898. The new season will be more of a remix than an adaptation where we see the story of a governess taking care of two children in a big house in Essex. Slowly, she comes into the realization that the house is haunted by ghostly apparitions.
Recently, Netflix released a one-minute teaser trailer which gives the viewers a sneak peek of the upcoming horrifying nightmares in the new season. Stay tuned because the story will make your blood run cold.
The Haunting of Hill House Season 2 Cast
