'The Haunting Of Bly Manor' Drops On Netflix On Friday

It's been a long time coming but The Haunting of Bly Manor finally arrives on Netflix on Friday - and it's just in time for some pre-Halloween weekend watching.

Yes, the sequel to Netflix's hit supernatural series The Haunting of Hill House is dropping and we can't wait to scare ourselves silly and binge all 10 episodes in one.

Part of The Haunting anthology, the new season will have no connection to the first, with new characters, a new storyline and a brand new creepy house.

It's based on Henry James' 'The Turn of the Screw' - an old novella horror centring around a governess who is sent to look after two children Flora and Miles, in a country house in Essex, Bly Manor.

While James' story is from 1898, The Haunting of Bly Manor is set in in 1980s England.

As per Netflix, the plot goes: "After an au pair's tragic death, Henry Wingrave hires a young American nanny to care for his orphaned niece and nephew who reside at Bly Manor with the estate's chef Owen, groundskeeper Jamie and housekeeper, Mrs. Grose.

"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. At Bly Manor, dead doesn't mean gone."
