Following the teaser released earlier last month, Netflix returns with an official trailer for The Haunting of Bly Manor. The show is a follow-up to the 2018 limited series Haunting of Hill House, which this time is based on Henry James’s classic horror novella The Turn of the Screw. The trailer above showcases a man named Henry Wingrave hiring a nanny as a guardian for his orphaned nephew and niece, both of which live in a haunted mansion alongside the estate’s chef Owen, groundskeeper Jamie, and housekeeper, Mrs. Grose.

Mike Flanagan’s adaptation brings the late 1800s story to the 1980s, where the orphaned siblings begin seeing apparitions that invade dreams and take over dolls. In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Flanagan touched on the differences between Hill House and Bly Manor, saying:

“At its foundation, the Haunting series is very much about haunted spaces and haunted people. The way we make those things dance together is really going to be what’s uniform about Hill House and Bly. Outside of that though, it was really important for all of us not to play the same notes we played for the first season. The first season is very much entrenched in family dynamics and death and grief and loss and child trauma. We all collectively felt like we’d said everything we wanted to say about that.”

The Haunting of Bly Manor stars Victoria Pedretti, Henry Thomas, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Kate Siegel, and T’Nia Miller. It’s co-written and directed by Flanagan and is slated to debut on Netflix on October 9.
