But this time the story will shift from Hill House to Bly Manor, a house in the countryside. It’s quite sometime after the first season was released, and now the audience is waiting to witness some paranormal activity. So when will the Haunting of Bly Manor release? Is it going to be a follow up of the last season?
Here is everything we know about The Haunting of the Hill House Season 2. Let’s check it out.
The Haunting of the Hill House Season 1
Haunting of the Hill House Season 1 was an adaptation of Shirley Jackson’s novel that explores Crain family’s trauma and the scary and supernatural events that they face. The plot involved two timelines where the paranormal experience of five siblings haunt them in their present life.
the series was critically acclaimed as the effective ghost story and deserves a second season with different characters and plot.
The Haunting of Bly Manor Season 2- What’s the Story About?
The Haunting of Bly Manor will have the backdrop of “The Turn of the Screw” novel by Henry James, from the 19th century. In the novel, Henry follows the very same stream of corset wearing Americans having life-time of experience on their European vacations, spooky-ghostly experience.
And so the story of Bly Manor revolves around an idealistic governess who goes to Bly Manor, a secluded country house with a mysterious man to take care of the man’s niece and nephew. The man, however, stays in the city and instructs the governess not to contact him ever.
Knowing the horror attached to the house, the decision seems to be right on his behalf. The governess too has a great time with the two students, until she starts witnessing mysterious people marauding the house. And these people have long been dead. She sights the ghost of Peter Quint, and Miss Jessel. And soon the youngest kid too, starts to see the ghosts. And the story further continues.
