Is Bly Manor a real location?
As we know, The Haunting of Bly Manor is based on the Henry James' novel The Turn of the Screw.
In his novella, the estate can be found nestled in the Essex countryside.
In the book, the home is never actually referred to as ‘Bly Manor’, just simply called 'Bly'.
The property in the book and the series is NOT a real place, but instead based on a fictional manor.
Where was The Haunting of Bly Manor filmed?
The Haunting of Bly Manor entered production on September 30, 2019.
Luckily for horror fans, it wrapped filming on February 21, 2020, before the coronavirus pandemic halted filming on many shows.
Like The Haunting of Hill House, the nine-episode series is set in a scary estate with its inhabitants having to deal with strange goings-on.
In this season, as mentioned, the series is set in Bly Manor, which is a country house where the Wingrave family live.
Despite the action being set in the English countryside, production on Bly Manor actually took place in Vancouver, Canada.
However, we hate to disappoint, but producers are keeping tight lipped about whether the show was filmed in a real manor house or not.
We do know that interior shots for the spooky series were filmed at The Bridge Studios in Canada.
In the past, when Henry James' The Turn of the Screw has been turned into a film or TV series, filming has always taken place in England
Locations previously used include the Gothic mansion of Sheffield Park in East Sussex and Brympton d'Evercy, a manor house near Yeovil, Somerset.
When is The Haunting of Bly Manor on Netflix?
The second instalment in The Haunting anthology drops TOMORROW (October 9, 2020).
You will be able to stream it from 8am on this day.
