From Hill House to Bly Manor: Behind the Scenes Video from Netflix


Today, Netflix released a brand new behind-the-scenes video giving us a look at The Haunting of Bly Manor just days after releasing new posters for the anthology series, which follows Hill House. You can check out the video in the player below.

In the video, creator Mike Flanagan and executive producer Trevor Macy talk about the road from 2018’s The Haunting of Hill House to The Haunting of Bly Manor, arriving October 9th on Netflix.

Bly Manor is based on Henry James’ 1898 horror novella The Turn of the Screw. The series will feature the return of Hill House cast members Victoria PedrettiOliver Jackson-CohenHenry ThomasCatherine Parker and Kate Siegel.

Pedretti will play Dani Clayton, an American tutor who looks after the very unusual Wingrave children, Miles (Benjamin Ainsworth) and Flora (Amelie Smith). Jackson-Cohen plays Peter Quint, a charming young man who lives at Bly Manor and makes life very difficult for everyone who lives there.

Henry Thomas this time plays Henry Wingrave, the wealthy uncle of the two orphaned children.

Also on board are T’Nia Miller, who plays Hannah Grose, the manager of Bly Manor; Rahul Kohli, playing resident chef Owen; Amelia Eve, who portrays groundskeeper Jamie; and Tahirah Sharif, who plays the children’s previous governess, Rebecca Jessel.

Flanagan previously told Vanity Fair that Bly Manor is about broken hearts that never heal and tragic star-crossed romance. “It certainly provides a new way to tell a love story, and there are three of them really that beat at the heart of this season.”

He added: “They all have a very dark edge to them. And by the end, it’s really hard to differentiate tragedy with romance. That sense of romantic longing for someone who meant so much to us — but who’s gone — really is the heart of any ghost story.”

In addition to The Turn of the Screw, Flanagan and his producer partner Trevor Macy brought in aspects of other supernatural stories by Henry James, such as The Jolly Corner and The Romance of Certain Old Clothes.
