The ghosts are set to return, but with a big difference“At its foundation, the Haunting series is very much about haunted spaces and haunted people. The way we make those things dance together is really going to be what’s uniform about Hill House and Bly,” Flanagan told Vanity Fair, before hinting at a change of direction for the Netflix series that will feature the same cast returning to portray different characters in a new setting.
In accordance with current safety guidelines Bruno wore a protective face mask as he made his way out of the supermarket with a full shopping trolley.
The outspoken judge is currently in Los Angeles to fulfill his role on Dancing With The Stars, but is expected to be back in the United Kingdom later this year for the eighteenth series of Strictly Come Dancing.

He said: 'Covid-19 has given me the opportunity to reinvent myself. I've been meaning to do this for years as I'm completely silver and dying it is so much hassle.
'I couldn't go to the hairdressers so I grew out the roots and I looked demented so then I shaved it off, grade one all over, which made me look even worse, like a murderer or a nasty guy off EastEnders.
'But now it's a little bit longer it looks nice and I'm keeping the grey. I feel liberated and I've had a lot of compliments. Myself and George Clooney are now practically twins.'
Due to Covid-19 travel restrictions, Bruno was initially worried he would not be able to take part in this year's series of Strictly, which he has filmed simultaneously with the US version Dancing With The Stars for the last 14 years.
