The series is also bring back Henry Thomas (Hugh), Oliver Jackson-Cohen (Luke), Kate Siegel (Theo), and Catherine Parker (Poppy).

The Haunting of Bly Manor is taking a similar approach to American Horror Story this season by having lots of returning characters in new roles. 

The new season will take inspiration from Henry James' horror novella, The Turn of the Screw.

That story followed two young orphans in an old country mansion, who were being cared for by a young governess.

While many thought the new season would drop around Halloween, it's coming a few weeks early.

All nine episodes will be available to stream Friday, October 9. 

The success of the first season led to Netflix locking down a rich overall deal with Mike Flanagan and his longtime Intrepid Pictures partner Trevor Macy.

"Mike Flanagan and Trevor Macy are masterful at creating authentically frightening stories that leave audiences on the edge of their seats, but unable to look away,” said Cindy Holland, VP of originals at Netflix at the time of the overall deal.
