Recent years have seen Netflix solidify its position as a premier destination for terrifying works of art. Let’s find out more about Haunting of Hill House Season 2.
The streaming service has a large catalog of horror and thriller films and original creations including Hush, The Ritual, and Gerald’s Game.
None of the above films are as horrific as Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House, which was been renewed for a second season. The catch?
Fans of the highly praised series were left wondering whether there would be a second season because of how well everything was tied up at the conclusion of the first season (possibly too nicely, if you ask me).
Netflix just secured a contract with showrunner Mike Flanagan and his colleague Trevor Macy. The contract includes a second season of the anthology series, sources told The Hollywood Reporter.
Our contacts with the Crains will stop soon. The second season will be called The Haunting of Bly Manor and include an all-new cast. No more Bent Neck Lady episodes, which, depending on your gore threshold, may be good or terrible. The first trailer gave me the chills and hinted that season 2 would be published next year.

Cindy Holland, Netflix’s VP of original programming, said the upcoming season “Mike Flanagan and Trevor Macy are masters at penning horrific tales that keep people captivated. We’re excited to continue working with them, particularly on the Haunting series.”
The Haunting of Hill House Season 2: Release Date
The Haunting of Bly Manor’s Twitter feed says it will be published in 2020, despite the coronavirus outbreak suspending worldwide production. Bly Manor doesn’t have an official release date, but we can predict.
Season 2 was filmed from September 2019 until February 21. This Netflix series debuted on 10/12/18. After one season, a release pattern cannot be determined. The Haunting of Bly Manor will be published in 2020 like its predecessor.
Season 2 should come in October 2020 if season 1 left ghostly breadcrumbs. This is a perfect time, given Halloween. Because the first season was so popular, people looking for a frightening All Saints’ Eve event may tune in more.
Mike Flanagan tweeted on April 21, 2020, that The Haunting of Bly Manor would be released in 2020.
The Haunting of Hill House Season 2: Cast
The Haunting of Hill House writer Mike Flanagan hasn’t been shy about introducing cast members to the world, even if the exact cast hasn’t been revealed yet, and surprise characters could join the program after each episode is viewed.
In addition, as previously announced, American Horror Story-style casting will be used for The Haunting of Hill House. Yes, that means that returning cast members from the first season can be expected in the second.
Flanagan has been tweeting about the casting of the scary TV series. For the second season, he has already announced the addition of Henry Thomas, Kate Siegel, Catherine Parker, T’Nia Miller (Years and Years), Rahul Kohli (iZombie), and Amelia Eve. Additionally, Benjamin Ainsworth and Amelie Smith have been cast as Miles and Flora, respectively.
Victoria Pedretti, the actress who played Nellie Crain in the first season of Bly Manor, has revealed that she will reprise her role as “a governess who takes care of two extremely strange children.” As “a resident of Bly Manor, who makes life very unpleasant for everyone who lives there,” Oliver Jackson-Cohen, who played Luke Crain in season 1, will return as Peter.
The second season of The Haunting of Hill House is going to be a lot of fun. For now, we can only hope Carla Gugino and other season one favorites return.
The Haunting of Hill House Season 2: Plot
The only downside to anthologies is waiting to see what the next season is about and where it takes place. Bly Manor will be based on Henry James’ 1898 horror classic The Turn of the Screw.
Bly is a made-up English rural mansion where the narrative takes place. The spooky home shouldn’t surprise anybody. The Haunting of Bly Manor is supposedly scarier than The Haunting of Hill House, and season 1 startled us.
Movies.Death: “We’re using Henry James’ ghost tales as a springboard for the season.” “It’s a wonderful opportunity to expand on what I enjoyed about season one, but inside a fresh tale and without being bound by our choices. It will be insane for Henry James fans and terribly terrifying for non-fans. It’s scarier than the first season, so I’m excited.”
