If you loved Netflix's The Haunting of Hill House, the breakout 2018 hit about the Crain family, do we have a treat for you: The Haunting of Bly Manor, the second in Netflix's The Haunting... anthology series, dropped on Netflix in the early hours of October 9. Like its predecessor, Bly Manor is based on a book—this time, the source material is The Turn of the Screw by Henry James, along with other James short stories—and it also features much of the standout cast from Hill House, including Victoria Pedretti, Henry Thomas, and Oliver Jackson-Cohen. But don't think of it as a sequel—this is a very different kind of story. It follows Pedretti as Dani, the American nanny who's hired to take care of two children, Flora and Miles, in a Gothic manor in the middle of the countryside. Things start to get spooky, to say the least. Ahead, our guide to the cast and characters (without spoilers!) of Bly Manor. Some you'll recognize, some you won't—but by the second episode, you'll have forgotten all about Hill House, and be firmly embedded in this chilling new ghost story.
