Based on Shirley Jackson's novel, The Haunting of Hill House features one of the best lesbian characters.

Written and directed by Mike Flanagan, the series follows the Crains. In 1992, Olivia and Hugh Crain bought Hill House to renovate and move in with their five children: Steven, Shirley, Theodora "Theo", and twins Luke and Eleanor "Nell". But after suffering paranormal damage and tragic losses, they left the house. Twenty-six years later, the father and his children meet after another tragedy. They now have to face their inner demons while mourning their losses.

Through flashbacks, we discover that one of the main characters, Theo (Kate Siegel), has clairvoyance skills that she developed during her childhood. Theo uses her power in her job as a child psychologist even though she tries to avoid physical contact with other people in everyday life.

Very quickly, we understand that Theo is lesbian. Her sexual orientation is neither a problem nor a secret.

Even if Theo has some problems with intimacy due to her power, she meets Trish in a bar and it becomes very intense.

Theo doesn't want a serious relationship but Trish becomes an exception to the rule. She's always here to comfort Theo as she knows her secret.

You can watch the trailer of The Haunting of Hill House below. You'll see, it's a very captivating series.

The Haunting of Hill House consists of 10 episodes now available on Netflix.
