Netflix have confirmed that The Haunting Of Bly Manor, the much-awaited spiritual sequel to their breakout 2018 hit The Haunting Of Hill House, will premiere on October 9th. Their official synopsis is as follows:

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. 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.

Although the franchise has taken the anthology approach, with Bly Manor being a completely separate story to that of Hill House, as we reported earlier this month there will be a number of old favourites returning: which mainly means cast veterans Victoria Pedretti, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Henry Thomas, and Kate Siegel, but also confirmed to be returning are those background ghosts which eagle-eyed viewers of Hill House will have noticed chilling out in the background, unremarked-upon and just generally being scary.

Netflix also released a teaser trailer, which you’ll find below:

Let’s be perfectly straight with one another – leaving a pile of spooky dolls in the basement is just asking for trouble. However, I’m very taken with the idea of a little girl simply shushing anything that tries to get spooky on her, and will be hoping to see a lot more of that when October rolls around.
