Netflix has revealed a first look at “The Haunting of Bly Manor,” the long-awaited second season of Mike Flanagan’s “The Haunting” anthology series.

The streaming service dropped the poster for “Bly Manor” Monday morning on Twitter, announcing that the season will debut this fall and encouraging fans to “look beneath the surface” until then.

Soon after that, Netflix gave fans a way to dive deeper with the release of 10 first-look photos from “The Haunting of Bly Manor,” which serve as an introduction to both the new titular haunted house and the cast of characters who live in it. (And yes, a few of those are familiar faces because some of the actors also appeared in 2018’s “The Haunting of Hill House.”)

While the 10-episode first season of “The Haunting” was a modern retelling of Shirley Jackson’s 1959 novel “The Haunting of Hill House,” the 9-episode second season is an adaptation of Henry James’ works, including “The Turn of the Screw.”

“Haunting of Hill House” alums Victoria Pedretti and Oliver Jackson-Cohen will star on “Bly Manor,” with Pedretti playing a governess named Dani “who takes care of two very unusual children” and Jackson-Cohen taking on the role of Peter, who is described as “a charming fellow” who lives at Bly Manor and “makes life very difficult for everyone there.”

Along with Pedretti and Jackson-Cohen, “The Haunting of Bly Manor” stars Amelia Eve, T’Nia Miller, Rahul Kohli, Tahirah Sharif, Amelie Bea Smith, Benjamin Evan Ainsworth and Henry Thomas, as well as Kate Siegel, Katie Parker, Alex Essoe and Matthew Holness.

Flanagan created the series and acts as showrunner, executive producing alongside Trevor Macy, Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey.

No premiere date has been set for “Bly Manor” just yet, but last October Flanagan told TheWrap it will likely be out around Halloween.
