Did The Haunt­ing of Hill House, the unnerv­ing 2018 Net­flix series based on Shirley Jack­son’s nov­el, keep you up at night? Bet­ter brace for more sleep­less hours, because direc­tor Mike Flana­gan says the sec­ond sea­son, The Haunt­ing of Bly Manor, is even more ter­ri­fy­ing.

The Haunt­ing of Bly Manor is a sim­i­lar mul­ti-episode hor­ror series, but it’s not based on anoth­er work by Jack­son, hence the new name. This sea­son takes inspi­ra­tion from the ghost sto­ries of acclaimed author Hen­ry James, includ­ing ghost­ly gov­erness tale The Turn of the Screw.

“(The new sea­son) very much is a whole new deal,” Flana­gan told the Birth. Movies. Death. web­site. “It’s a cool way to expand on some of the things I loved about sea­son one, but with­in the frame­work of a new sto­ry, with­out hav­ing to be restrained by the deci­sions we made last time.”

New, but just as heart-pound­ing, he promis­es.

“For Hen­ry James fans, it’s going to be pret­ty wild, and for peo­ple who aren’t famil­iar with his work, it’s going to be unbe­liev­ably scary,” Flana­gan says. “I already think it’s much scari­er than sea­son one, so I’m very excit­ed about it.”

Some of the Hill House actors, includ­ing Vic­to­ria Pedret­ti and Oliv­er Jack­son-Cohen, will play roles in the new sea­son, the direc­tor says.

The Haunt­ing of Bly Manor is sched­uled for a 2020 release.
