It nearly feels like cheating to have The Mandalorian be what everyone’s most excited about this month as it releases right at the end of the month. But we can’t help it. Who isn’t excited about more of that Star Wars show?
There’s a lot more to be excited about this month including the return of Mike Flanagan and his anthology ‘The Haunting’ series so let’s get into what TV shows you should be excited about this October.
The Haunting of Bly Manor – 09/10
The Haunting of Hill House was the Explosion Network’s pick for Best TV Show of 2019, so we have high hopes for the follow-up, The Haunting of Bly Manor.
Following the success of the first season, the show was renewed as an anthology series. Mike Flanagan returns alongside some of the key cast from the first season including Henry Thomas and Victoria Pedretti — they’re playing new characters, however.
The story this season follows a young governess who’s hired by a man to look after his niece and nephew after they fall into his care. After arriving at the Bly estate she begins to see apparitions and a haunting begins.
The Haunting of Bly Manor is based on the short horror novella by Henry James titled ‘The Turn of the Screw.’ It’s been adapted many times over the years, including last years The Turning.
