If you are a fan of a horror-supernatural, drama series, you might have already seen the first season of “The Haunting of Hill House” or maybe it is in your watchlist. Released in October 2018, the series received a lot of appreciation from both the fans and the critics. It is based on the novel which goes by the same name as the series by Shirley Jackson.
Now since it has been more than one year for the release of the first season, fans are expecting something from the makers.
The makers have announced the second season will be named as “ The Haunting of Bly Manor”, is on its way. The title is inspired by the country house in Henry James’s “Turn of the Screw”.
The showrunner Mike Flanagan told the sources that it is way scarier than the previous one. It’s a lot more frightening, just on a visceral level.

Previously it seemed like we may not see any character from season one to return to the next season as it is a different story. But it comes to our attention that future installments will go similarily to American Horror Story, recasting the previously casted actors in new roles in each season.
Mike Flanagan tweeted on 28 August 2019:
“ I’m beyond thrilled to announce that the inestimable, irreplaceable, invaluable Henry Thomas has joined the cast of The Haunting of Bly Manor”.
