“The Haunting of Bly Manor” drops its eerie first teaser

The series premieres on Netflix on October 9, 2020.

WATCH: "The Haunting of Bly Manor" teaser is eerie

The official teaser for The Haunting of Bly Manor just dropped at Netflix. Following Hill House, Mike Flanagan’s follow-up promises an equally eerie outing.

Netflix has dropped the official The Haunting of Bly Manor teaser on us, approximately a month into release. The 60-seconder preview teases an entirely different story—or, ahem, excuse me, “haunting”—and stars some of the series’ alums like Victoria Pedretti, Henry Thomas, and Oliver Jackson-Cohen.

The anthology format, fans would note, resembles that of American Horror Story, where actors return to play different characters in new stories. Pedretti, who made an impressive showing in last season’s Hill House, returns here as Dani Clayton, a governess tasked to babysit a pair of wealthy kids living in a grand family estate.

Like last season, show creator Mike Flanagan (In The Tall Grass, Gerald’s Game) takes after a piece of revered gothic fiction—Henry James’ The Turn of the Screw. Being set in the 80’s, Bly Manor looks like it’s going to be a modern reimagining of James’ novella.

The series is set to premiere on Netflix on October 9th, 2020. Watch the full trailer below.
