Is the American supernatural horror drama ‘The Haunting of Bly Manor’ based on a true story?

The haunting of bly manor which has been directed by the same director who directed haunting of hill house, is different from the series. The series will air on Netflix which is one of the biggest streaming networks. Mike Flangan the forty two year old American filmmaker has directed the series.


The haunting of hill house was based on a real life incident of a family which dealt with trauma after living in a haunted house. The show potrayed the ghosts in a different and modern way which is very much needed.



The haunting of Bly Manor is being brought as the sequel of hill house. And just like the previous season,  this horror series has been based on a very old incident. The primary season was also baaed on a novel of the same name.

The sequel is based on a Gothic scary novel which has been written by Hsnry James. The book is called The turn of the screw. So to infer, the sequel is not based on a true incident.

More movies have been adapted based on the novel too. One of them released this year in January on twenty third called the turning.

The American supernatural horror drama will follow the storyline of a woman not too old who has recently moved to a new place. She wants to take care of two children who have lost both their parents.

The series unlike its prequel will not focus on the struggles that a family faced, it will focus on a more romantic note which was not fulfilled.

RELEASE DATE – The haunting of bly manor
