the haunting season 3

If you were hoping that Mike Flanagan and company would take you to a new spooky house for a third Haunting season, I have some bad news. According to the filmmaker, who created both The Haunting of Hill House and the recent The Haunting of Bly Manor for Netflix, there are currently no plans for a third entry. Meanwhile, in other Mike Flanagan news, the director’s film adaptation of Stephen King‘s Revival seems to be dead.

haunting of bly manor spoiler review

I’ve already given a traditional, spoiler-free assessment of The Haunting of Bly Manor, in which I delved into how the series felt like a bit of a step-down from The Haunting of Bly Manor. Part of that review abided by embargo notes – Netflix sent out a list of details they really didn’t want covered in reviews, for the sake of protecting spoilers.

But now that Bly Manor has been streaming for a few days, I’m returning to touch on some of the more spoiler-centric elements haunting the new Netflix horror series.

In the market for something spooky? Netflix has you covered – because they went ahead and put Bly Manor, from the impending The Haunting of Bly Manor, up on real estate database company Zillow. To be fair, you can’t actually buy the house, but this is a neat little bit of marketing that gives you a glimpse of the sprawling manor that takes center stage in the highly-anticipated horror series.

haunting of bly manor review

As David Foster Wallace once wrote, every love story is a ghost story. In an interview before the release of The Haunting of Bly Manor, the new follow-up to The Haunting of Hill House, series creator Mike Flanagan seemed to agree without actually quoting Wallace, stating: “Each of us, when we fall in love, is giving birth to a new ghost – something that’s going to follow up for the rest of our lives.”

Beneath all the creepy moments here – the shrieks, the screams, the spectral figures with half-melted faces – beneath all the death that lurks throughout Bly Manor lurks love, too. What a beautiful idea that is. And yet…Bly Manor never seems to know where it’s going, or how to get there. It wants to scare you and make you swoon, and sadly, is often unsuccessful on both counts. But every now and then, a little bit of magic manages to poke through.

haunting of bly manor posters

The Haunting of Bly Manor will arrive next Friday in all its ghostly glory. And ahead of that impending release, stylish posters for each episode have been released. They’re vague but suggestive, and will all make much more sense once you see the episodes in question. For now, though, you can gaze upon their glory below and try to decipher their meaning. And, as a fun bonus, each episode is named after a Henry James story. James’ The Turn of the Screw serves as the main inspiration for this season.

haunting of bly manor featurette

As October rolls in and gives way to Halloween season, it’s time to get haunted by Mike Flanagan and Netflix all over again. Flanagan and his team return next month with The Haunting of Bly Manor, a follow-up to the fantastic Haunting of Hill House. While this is yet another ghost story, and it maintains several Hill House actors, this is also something completely new – they’re taking an anthology approach here, where each new season tells a different story about different characters. A new Haunting of Bly Manor featurette goes behind the scenes of the upcoming series.

What is it about Henry James’ 1898 horror novella The Turn of the Screw? The Gothic ghost story has been the subject of not one, but two adaptations in the past year, first with Floria Sigismondi’s horror film The Turning and now with the upcoming Netflix series The Haunting of Bly Manor, the follow-up season to Mike Flanagan‘s acclaimed horror anthology The Haunting of Hill House. But The Haunting of Bly Manor looks to be a more promising take on the classic ghost story, with its eerie atmosphere and returning Haunting cast members led by Victoria Pedretti. Watch the official The Haunting of Bly Manor trailer below.

Haunting of Bly Manor Trailer

Doctor Sleep director Mike Flanagan brought plenty of horror to Netflix with The Haunting of Hill House back in 2018. Now he’s back with even more terror with the next installment of the horror anthology series, The Haunting of Bly Manor.

But as the trailer eerily illustrates, all the creepiness you loved about the first series is still here, and it will arrive just in time to spook up your October. Read More »
