The Haunting Of Bly Manor Has Finished Filming
The Haunting of Bly Manor has wrapped filming, according to the creator and director Mike Flanagan.
That's a wrap on THE HAUNTING OF BLY MANOR.
Congratulations to the cast and crew, the familiar faces and the new, and congratulations to the filmmakers who came on board to make this season their own.

Considering the success that came off the back of The Haunting of Hill House it's safe to say this is welcome news.
While the first season centred on Hill House and the Crain family, the new season is set in Bly Manor and will be completely separate from the first.
Bly Manor is the name of the (haunted) house in classic horror novella The Turn of the Screw by Henry James, which some of you might remember from GCSE English.
The novella, written in 1898, tells the story of a governess who goes to Bly Manor to look after two recently orphaned children Miles and Flora, who were under the care of their uncle and had been looked after by housekeeper Mrs Grose.
The governess quickly begins to suspect there is something not quite right about the children - and becomes convinced something sinister is at work in the house and grounds.

Back in October, Flanagan announced filming had begun for The Haunting of Bly Manor confirming the crew were on their second day of production.
The second season is out next year, although an official date hasn't been announced yet, and will star Victoria Pedretti, as the governess Dani. Pedretti appeared as Nellie 'Nel' Crain in The Haunting of Hill House, as well as appearing as Love Quinn in You.
Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Henry Thomas and Kate Siegel will all be making returning for the second season, too - as brand new characters, of course.
And Jackson-Cohen, who played the grown-up Luke Crain in the first season, has teased we'll be getting a 'very, very exciting story'.
He 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."
