The setting of 'The Haunting of Bly Manor' is 1980s England.
Its official synopsis reads: "After an au pair’s tragic death, Henry Wingrave (Henry Thomas) hires a young American nanny (Victoria Pedretti) to care for his orphaned niece and nephew (Amelie Bea Smith, Benjamin Evan Ainsworth). They reside at Bly Manor with the estate’s chef Owen (Rahul Kohli), groundskeeper Jamie (Amelia Eve) and housekeeper, Mrs. Grose (T’Nia Miller).
"But all is not as it seems at the manor. Centuries of dark secrets of love and loss are waiting to be unearthed in this chilling gothic romance. At Bly Manor, dead doesn’t mean gone."
Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Kate Siegel, and Tahirah Sharif also star.
Mike Flanagan (who also directed 'Doctor Sleep') returns as exec producer and director.
