The haunting of hill house is coming back with its new season. In season 1, we got to know about the Crain family. This time we’ll be exploring more about the Bly Manor. Season 1 was based on Shirley Jackson’s 1959 Gothic novel. Season 2: The Haunting of Bly Manor will focus more on The Turn of the Screw, a chilling tale from 1898.
Season 2 of the haunting of hill house will be released this year. However, no particular date has been confirmed yet.
The story of the turn of the screw is based on a governess who moves to Bly Manor to take care of a man’s niece and nephew – Miles and Flora – after their parents died. Things turn sour when the governess starts to see ghosts of the previous governess Miss Jessel and her lover Peter Quint around the property.
In an interview with GamesRadar+ Harry James said, “The thing I have access to, that no other adaptation of The Turn off to the Screw has, is the rest of Henry James’ ghost stories. I get to use all of them,” he said. “The Turn of the Screw has been adapted so many times. We know how perfectly it fits into a feature film format. We’re doing a whole season of television. The Turn of the Screw is only one of a dozen stories that we’re telling. All Henry James; all thematically linked.
“I think of Turning of the Screw as the backbone of this season – the through-line that carries us from beginning to end. But we get to go off into The Jolly Corner and The Romance of Certain Old Clothes, and so many other of these wonderful ghost stories that people haven’t seen adapted before. It’s all wrapped up in what seems to be familiar, but that familiarity goes away really early in the first episode. It says, ‘We’re off on a whole other road.'”
