The Haunting of Hill House will be coming back. Announced today in a tweet from the official account, last year's excellent horror series will return to Netflix in 2020. We will be witness to The Haunting of Bly Manor. This is of course the setting for the Henry James novella The Turn of the Screw. We will again be spooked behind the camera by Michael Flanagan.

The Turn of the Screw was published in 1898 and tells the story of a governess who, while taking care of two children who's parents have passed away, begins to think that the mansion they are living in is haunted. Guess what: it is!
There is no news on casting for the second season has been announced at this time, but a likely bet is that some of the wonderful cast from the first season of the show will return, since it looks like this is taking an anthology approach to storytelling, ala American Horror Story. I would say it's a lock Carla Gugino makes an appearance, and I will speculate now she will play the governess.
The seocnd seaosn of The Haunting of Hill House, The Haunting of Bly Manor, will debut on Netflix sometime in 2020.
