First of all, Mike Flanagan and Trevor Macy will be developing and producing this new chapter. “Mike Flanagan and Trevor Macy are masterful at creating authentically frightening stories that leave audiences on the edge of their seats but unable to look away,” Cindy Holland, vice president of original content at Netflix, said in a statement. “We’re excited to continue our partnership with them on the Haunting series and future projects to come.
Instead of revisiting the Crains and the ghosts of Hill House, the second season will become an installment in an anthology the service is calling The Haunting.
According to Entertainment Weekly, The Haunting of Bly Manor follows the story of “an American nanny who becomes the new au pair to two orphaned children (played by Amelie Bea Smith and Benjamin Evan Ainsworth) in 1980s England.
The first season of Netflix's The Haunting of Hill House was both terrifying and gut-wrenchingly emotional—a perfect combination to draw in viewers.
