The next chapter of the Netflix horror TV show, The Haunting Of Hill House, is just around the corner. It's got a new name this time around--we've left Hill House in favor of a trip to England for The Haunting Of Bly Manor--a take on Henry James' gothic novella, Turn Of The Screw.

While Bly Manor doesn't have a release date set just yet, it would seem an announcement is just around the corner. The show's social media page posted a cryptic tweet showcasing a help wanted ad for a live-in nanny, featuring a phone number.

You can call the number--we certainly did--and be greeted by a creepy voice mail from the two children of the Windgrave family, letting you know that they are not home right now but, if you're calling about the nanny position, their uncle will be conducting interviews in five days. We can't be completely sure what will actually be happening in that time, but we can assume it'll be some news about the show--possibly the first teaser trailer or an official premiere date.

James' Turn Of The Screw focuses on--you guessed it--a live-in nanny (or "governess" in 1800s parlance) who is given the task of caring for two young aristocratic children after the death of their parents. The story follows the nanny's slow descent into madness and paranoia as she begins to suspect that the house is haunted and that the ghosts are manipulating the children.

While Bly Manor will be a separate story from Hill House, you'll recognize some familiar faces mixed in with the new. Showrunner Mike Flannagan is giving the series the anthology treatment, bringing back actors from Hill House for new characters. Victoria Pedretti (Nell Crain) is Dani, Oliver Jackson-Cohen (Luke Crain) is Peter, and both Kate Siegel (Theo Crain) and Henry Thomas (Hugh Crain) have been cast as well.

The Haunting Of Bly Manor will premiere on Netflix this year.
