Good news, everyone.
The upcoming second season of Netflix and Mike Flanagan’s The Haunting of Hill House dubbed The Haunting of Bly Manor was not impacted by the Coronavirus and is still expected to hit later this year.
Flanagan tells CinemaBlend’s ReelBlend podcast: “I don’t expect it to be delayed one bit. We didn’t really miss a step, believe it or not. We had already wrapped before the whole COVID shutdown hit all the productions. We had a couple of weeks where we had to kind of figure out how to continue post remotely. But my post team also, you know, where I’ve been with now, my whole career, they cracked it real fast and we’ve been doing everything on these virtual sessions.”
He adds: “I think Netflix, they haven’t announced when it’s coming out. They’ve got their own plan. But we’ve been jamming through post. It’s been going great. It’s definitely later this year. It’s not going to get kicked off into 2021, or anything. Everything’s on schedule.“
The Haunting of Bly Manor will be loosely based on The Turn of the Screw by Henry James. Cast includes Victoria Pedretti, Henry Thomas, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Kate Siegel, T’Nia Miller, Catherine Parker, Rahul Kohli as Owen, Benjamin Evan Ainsworth, Amelie Smith, and Amelia Eve
Episodes are written by Mike Flanagan, James Flanagan, Diane Ademu-John, Laurie Penny, Angela LaManna, Rebecca Leigh Klingel, The Clarkson Twins, Leah Fong, and Julia Bicknell. The Haunting of Bly Manor will premiere on Netflix in 2020.
