An extended cut of Netflix's Haunting of Hill House is headed to, of all places, Blu-ray, director Mike Flanagan tweeted Friday. The 10-episode horror series about a dysfunctional family's past in their old home is based on Shirley Jackson's 1959 novel. 

"Well this news got out there a LITTLE earlier than we wanted ... but yes, it's true! More details to come, but it was a blast restoring several episodes to their original form," Flanagan tweeted.

Amblin Entertainment tweeted the news on Thursday, saying, "Just listed, new to the market. Why lease when you can own a lovely estate like Hill House, now even more spacious with director @flanaganfilm's extended cut of the series!" 

The Blu-ray release of Haunting of Hill House is available for preorder now on Amazon. The show debuted last year, starring Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Victoria PedrettiMichiel Huisman and Carla Gugino

A second season of the series, called The Haunting of Bly Manor, is scheduled for a 2020 release. It'll be a different story that's based on the 1898 horror novella The Turn of The Screw by Henry James.
