Unfortunately, casting details seem to be all we know at the moment, as plot details have been pretty thin on the ground.

What we do know, however, is that it has been confirmed that the series will be loosely based on the 1898 Henry James novella The Turn of the Screw.

We can't wait to find out who the new cast members will be playing – and how the story will play out.

The Haunting of Hill House is available on Netflix.
