Trailer Drops For New Horror Series The Haunting Of Bly Manor

Trailer Drops For New Horror Series The Haunting Of Bly Manor

A creepy trailer for The Haunting Of Bly Manor has been released ahead of its long-awaited debut this autumn, and it looks as though we'll all be suitably spooked.

The new Netflix show comes from Mike Flanagan, the creator of the hugely successful anthology horror series The Haunting of Hill House, and is set to hit the streaming service on 9 October.

The official synopsis reads: "From The Haunting of Hill House creator Mike Flanagan and producer Trevor Macy comes The Haunting Of Bly Manor, the next highly anticipated chapter of The Haunting anthology series, set in 1980s England and based on Henry James' 1898 novella The Turn of the Screw.

"After an au pair's tragic death, Henry Wingrave (Henry Thomas) hires a young American nanny (Victoria Pedretti) to care for his orphaned niece and nephew (Amelie Bea Smith, Benjamin Evan Ainsworth) who reside at Bly Manor with the estate's chef Owen (Rahul Kohli), groundskeeper Jamie (Amelia Eve) and housekeeper, Mrs. Grose (T'Nia Miller).

"But all is not as it seems at the manor, and centuries of dark secrets of love and loss are waiting to be unearthed in this chilling gothic romance. At Bly Manor, dead doesn't mean gone."

Filming for the second instalment wrapped back in February, just before the coronavirus took hold of production schedules across the entertainment industry.

Flanagan later assured fans that he didn't foresee any delays with the project, and promised they could still expect a 2020 release.

"In Henry James' world, 'romance' [...] meant mystery and excitement - and Gothic Romance meant horror and ruin," Flanagan said.

"Romance held buried secrets, supernatural agony, and the sense of encroaching doom.

"Gothic Romance, it turns out, has teeth... and we have had a blast sharpening them for you all."

He added: "I am lucky. So, so lucky. I have had the privilege of now standing in two of the most iconic haunted houses in the history of horror fiction.

"I hope you enjoy your time in Bly Manor as much as I have, and I hope you enjoy this ghost story, told as all of them should be... in a low voice, around a fire. This is another tale of a haunted house, for certain, but also of haunted people... and as Steve Crain said last season, 'There's no shortage of either.'"
