Terror never rests, and Netflix neither. Created by Mike Flanagan, the first season of ‘The curse of Hill House’ became last year one of the hits of the platform. It was only a matter of time before the giant confirmed a new delivery, which will soon be with us. Because we already have a release date (at least approximate) than expected ‘The curse of Bly Manor’. And yes, we have also received some new images just like him poster.
Its creator, Mike Flanagan, has already warned that the continuation of the terro series would arrive before the end of 2020. And his order and our prayers have been heard, as Netflix has confirmed that ‘The Curse of Bly Manor’ will arrive this fall. In the absence of a specific date, at least we already know that there will be less than three months to enjoy this long-awaited installment that will return with some members of the cast in a new setting.
Because if we already have something clear, it is that if the first installment was an adaptation of Shirley Jackson’s 1959 novel ‘The Haunting of Hill House’, this new season will be based on the novel by Henry James, ‘The Turn of the Screw’ , from 1898. The protagonist will be a governess (to be played by Victoria Pedretti) which will tell the story of a summer during which she took care of two children, Flora and Miles, after her uncle gains custody after the death of their parents. The man, who lives in London, wants nothing to do with the children, so the governess is sent to look after them at her country home in Essex, Bly Manor. As she watches the children, the governess begins to see the figures of a man and a woman around the property that no one else seems to notice …
Next to Henry Thomas, Victoria Pedretti, Catherine Parker, Oliver Jackson-Cohen y Kate Siegel we will see Rahul Kohli, T’Nia Miller, Amelia Eve, Benjamin Ainsworth y Amelie Smith.
While we wait for the release date, here are some new images of the series and the poster from the second season of this horror anthology:
