WATCH: Trailer creeps in for The Haunting of Bly Manor

August 31st, 2020 by Marc Comments

For those of you who loved The Haunting of Hill House last year – I’ve not had a chance yet but heard nothing but great things – it looks like the new story – The Haunting of Bly Manor – will have a few treats in store too.

Showrunner Mike Flannaghan has made it clear that the new series isn’t a sequel but rather, much like the American Horror Story series, it will be an anthology and will have all the same cast as Hill House back but in new roles.

For example, twins Luke and Nell actors Victoria Pedretti and Oliver Jackson-Cohen have new roles in this story, as will Catherine Parker, Henry Thomas, Kate Siegel, Catherine Parker, Amelia Eve, T’Nia Miller, Benjamin Evan Ainsworth and Amelie Smith – all of whom are in undisclosed roles as of now.

Whatever they play, this debuts in October and looks like ideal Halloween viewing… just, why did it have to be dolls?!

Anyway, check out the new trailer below and prepare to be spooked…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
