The much-awaited teaser of the Netflix series ‘The Haunting of Bly Manor’ is out now. The show is said to be a predecessor to the critically acclaimed series ‘The Haunting of Hill House’.
Based on the gothic novella by Henry James called ‘The Turn of the Screw’, the new season stars the familiar faces from the first part of the show (Victoria Pedretti, Kate Siegel, Henry Thomas, Oliver Jackson-Cohen among others). However, these actors won’t be playing their old characters. They will be seen in new roles in the upcoming season.
The teaser looks creepy with a deserted house filled with creepy-looking dolls. Dolls seem to be the central theme of this show. The teaser doesn’t depict anything unusual apart from the typical ingredients of a horror story. The music sounds impactful though. However, the audience can expect an extensively scary ride since the first season ‘The Haunting of Hill House’ was wildly successful.
The official synopsis of the series reads, “After an au pair’s tragic death, Henry Wingrave (Henry Thomas) hires a young American nanny (Victoria Pedretti) to care for his orphaned niece and nephew (Amelie Bea Smith, Benjamin Evan Ainsworth) who reside at Bly Manor with the estate’s chef Owen (Rahul Kohli), groundskeeper Jamie (Amelia Eve) and housekeeper, Mrs Grose (T’Nia Miller). But all is not as it seems at the manor, and centuries of dark secrets of love and loss are waiting to be unearthed in this chilling gothic romance.”
‘The Haunting of Bly Manor’ will start streaming on Netflix from October 9.
