After an au pair’s tragic death, Henry hires a young American nanny to care for his orphaned niece and nephew who reside at Bly Manor with the chef Owen, groundskeeper Jamie and housekeeper, Mrs. Grose.
A young governess is hired by a man to look after his niece and nephew at their family country house after they fall into his care. Soon after arriving at the Bly estate, she begins to experience strange occurrences and a grim history starts to unravel.
The Haunting of Bly Manor is a follow-up to the American anthology horror drama series The Haunting of Hill House (2018). While the creative team and many of the cast of Hill House are returning for Bly Manor, the narratives of the two series will not be connected. See more »
Bly Manor has North American early 20th century push button light switches and sockets throughout the building despite being set somewhere in Essex, England. Buildings electrified in early 20th century England would have had toggle switches and round two pin sockets. By the 1980s, when the series is set, there would have been modern UK sockets and switches if the building had ever been rewired. Henry's office and Peter's flat have the correct UK switches.

I looooved the Hill house and was looking forward to the same creators producing a new masterpiece, but in my opinion they didn't.
The first 4 episodes are sooo slow and borderline boring, to the point where I almost stopped watching. Glad I didn't, because the 2nd half was way better. But all together it didn't hit a home run for me.
Not bad, just not great.
btw am I the only one who got annoyed by "perfectly splendid"?!
