The Haunting of Bly Manor Season 2 Plot Speculation
The first season of The Haunting of Bly Manor was related to Hill House. Both the show shares their genres and have a similar kind of story but are yet very different.
The show started by making us familiar with the characters of The Haunting of Bly Manor. They portrayed a Young American woman, Danielle ‘Dani’ Clayton who was hired by a man to look after his niece and nephew. He took care of all her expenses and lived in the country home of the family.
She was overwhelmed by the beauty of the countryside of the Bly estate. Dani was falling in love with the environment around her until she experienced supernatural events occurring around the countryside.
She began to encounter events that haunted the premises. She was shaken after the incident. The story then showcased to us the reasons for such happenings and their resolution.
The first season wrapped the mess it flew in nine episodes. They didn’t leave a space for the plot of The Haunting of Bly Manor Season 2. There is nothing from the first season which needs an answer in the second season of this horror drama.
The makers have not officially released any kind of synopsis or brief which could give us a sneak peek into the storyline of The Haunting of Bly Manor Season 2. However, we can still speculate it based on the first season.
Since there was no room for The Haunting of Bly Manor Season 2 in the first season, we hope that the new season will have a new horror drama in the same town or maybe it could be set in a new place.
