With October in full swing, it is officially the Halloween season. As such, viewers who are looking for a scare end up watching various horror-themed television and film content. Netflix’s spooky holiday offering is the highly anticipated sequel to the Hill House thriller, The Haunting of Bly Manor. The full nine episodes of the series were released last weekend, but where can we watch them?
Continuing its predecessor’s creepy tone, The Haunting of Bly Manor delights horror fans with both new plot and characters. Hill House alumna Victoria Pedretti returns as Dani, a young governess who moves to the titular house. She takes charge of the two orphaned children named Miles and Flora. Somehow, she begins experiencing mysterious events at night, leading her to conclude that other entities occupy the house, too.
The series also stars Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Amelia Eve, T’Nia Miller, Rahul Kohli, Tahirah Sharif, Amelie Bea Smith, Benjamin Evan Ainsworth, and Henry Thomas. Created by Mike Flanagan, the show is based on Henry James’ 1898 horror novella, The Turn of the Screw.
How to watch The Haunting of Bly Manor online?
The Haunting of Bly Manor is a Netflix-produced series which means that it is exclusively distributed by the streaming site. It hit the platform on October 9, with all of its nine episodes released at once.
Although Bly Manor takes after the Hill House series, the former is a standalone show following the anthology format. In other words, you don’t need to have seen the previous series to follow the new drama’s story.
For interested viewers, you will have to subscribe to Netflix in order to watch the series. This means that the series won’t be available to watch on other streaming platforms such as Hulu, Sky or Amazon Prime. As a new subscriber, users can enjoy a 30-day free access to the site. Once it ends, subscribers need to purchase a payment plan to continue the use of service.
Netflix offers three streaming plans – Basic, Standard, and Premium at $8.99, $12.99 and $15.99 per month respectively. The basic subscription allows subscribers a single screen view at a time at a standard definition (SD) resolution. Meanwhile, the standard plan subscribers get to watch on two screens at a time in high definition (HD). The premium, which is ideal for a large family, allows viewing four screens at once in HD or 4K Ultra HD if available.
