The Haunting of Hill House left us all with their mouths open, the second season, which they have called The Haunting of Bly Manor, promises no less and so says Oliver Jackson-Cohen, who states that this second part It will be just as bright.
The first installment, which saw the light in 2018, quickly made its way among all fans of terror and, although it seemed that it was only going to have one season, Netflix has not been able to deny the success it has obtained. It was announced that there would be a second delivery.
In an interview that Jackson-Cohen has granted ScreenRant, he has shown the hope he has with this second season:
The hard part is that ‘The Haunting of Hill House’ was a brilliant show. I really loved it. It was an incredible story, what Mike [Flanagan] had done. And the hardest part was, how will you make a second and make it equally bright? And it has, which is simply phenomenal. We finished filming. … I stopped filming ‘The Invisible Man’ to go and start in ‘Bly Manor’, and it’s a story. Mike Flanagan is so smart.
What we know so far is that The Haunting of Bly Manor will be an anthology and will be inspired by the novel by Henry James Another twist, which is about a governess assigned to a house that will soon believe she is haunted. Although we know that it is not a direct adaptation, its plot will include some of these elements.
Some of the actors that make up the original cast of The Haunting of Hill House will return for this second season but will represent different characters, exactly as it happened with American Horror Story. This includes Cohen, along with Henry Thomas, Kate Siegel, Victoria Pedretti, Catherine Parker, and actress Carla Gugino, who has also expressed interest in returning. But we will also see new faces such as those of T’Nia Miller, Rahul Kohli, Amelia Eve, Amelie Smith, and Benjamin Ainsworth.
