Netflix revealed images for new series The Haunting of Hill House, set to debut October 12, as well as first-look photos for the sixth and final season of House of Cards, which drops November 2.
Just in time for Halloween, The Haunting of Hill House is a modern reimagining of Shirley Jackson’s novel of the same name that Netflix describes as “a complex family drama wrapped in a chilling horror story.” It explores a group of siblings who, as children, grew up in what would go on to become the most famous haunted house in the country. Now adults, and forced back together in the face of tragedy, the family must finally confront the ghosts of their past—some of which still lurk in their minds while others may actually be stalking the shadows of Hill House.

The streamer’s photos introduce Diane Lane and Greg Kinnear as Annette and Bill Shepherd, a sister and brother who inherited Shepherd Unlimited, a leading industrial conglomerate whose family foundations exert a powerful behind-the-scenes force in the American political landscape. The two share a vision for the future of America, as well as a complicated past with the Underwoods.
Cody Fern (The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, American Horror Story: Apocalypse) stars as Duncan Shepherd, Annette’s ambitious and devoted son, who represents the next generation of D.C. power players.
In the final season, Claire (Robin Wright) may have risen to power as U.S. president, but her fight to stay at the top is far from over.
Michael Kelly, Jayne Atkinson, Patricia Clarkson, Constance Zimmer, Derek Cecil, Campbell Scott and Boris McGiver will also return to see the show to its end.
