The Haunting of Hill House season two is coming to Netflix - this autumn

It'll be spooky season, after all.

Back in 2018, The Haunting of Hill House dropped onto our screens and redefined the TV horror genre as we know it.

It was expertly written, it was deeply upsetting, and it was absolutely terrifying - everything one would possibly want from a Netflix show about death and ghosts.

And now, a mere two years later, the second instalment of the incredible series is dropping onto our screens... very soon, indeed.

The Haunting of Bly Manor is the second season of the eagerly anticipated horror anthology from Mike Flanagan.

Featuring new characters, a new haunting, and some familiar faces (Victoria Pedretti, you can do no wrong), the new series won't be continuing the story of the Crain family, but rather, an entirely new family with new problems, new ghosts, and new occurrences to be terrified by.

The Haunting of Bly Manor, based on Henry James' totally terrifying novel The Turn of the Screw, tells the story of a governess who assumes the care of two young orphans.

The governess, played by Pedretti, adopts the unusual Wingrave orphans, and soon begins to experience some strange happenings, leading to her becoming convinced that the manor, and the grounds surrounding it, are haunted.

Hill House's Jackson Cohen, who played Luke Crain in season one, is returning to play the role of Peter, "a charming young man who lives at Bly," while Henry Thomas is back to play Henry Wingrave, the orphans' uncle.

There's a whole host of new cast members too, including T'Nia Miller as Hannah Grose, the manager of Bly Manor, Tahirah Sharif, Amelia Eve and Rahul Kohli.

Netflix have yet to confirmed an exact release date for the upcoming series, but we do know that it's going to be the autumn time.

Probably close enough to Halloween. That'd make sense now, wouldn't it?
