Netflix has renewed The Haunting of Hill House, however the second season will focus on a different spooky abode – Bly Manor, the haunting home in the novel The Turn of the Screw.
The horror series from Mike Flanagan and Trevor Macy has now been confirmed as an anthology, with each new season chronicling a new haunting, with entirely new characters.
Bly Mansion is the setting of Henry James’ gothic psychological horror, The Turn of the Screw, which takes place almost entirely in the old country mansion, where two young orphans are cared for by a young governess, who narrates most of the story.
