Earlier this week we shared the first look at Netflix’s “The Haunting of Bly Manor.” Now, the official Twitter page for the series has unveiled something interesting, a faux wanted ad, and a number that fans can actually call.
We got curious and called. The number leads to a spooky message recorded by young actress Amelie Bea Smith who states that interviews will be held for the nanny position in five days, followed by the creepy humming of a tune. We can’t help but wonder if the message is actually teasing that the trailer will be released on Monday (8/31).

Showrunner Mike Flanagan‘s new series is based on the Henry James novella, The Turning of the Screw, about a young woman who travels to the countryside to care for two orphaned children. There she encounters entities and happenings she can not explain.
Several of the cast members from “The Haunting of Hill House” are returning including Victoria Pedretti, Henry Thomas plays the uncle of the children, Kate Siegel, and Oliver Jackson-Cohen who stars as Peter Quint a business associate of the uncle. Benjamin Evan Ainsworth and Amelie Bea Smith play the roles of the young siblings. Rahul Kohli has also joined the cast as does T’Nia Miller who serves as the manager of the house.
