A pet bird is killed. Not shown on-screen, but the whole situation may make some uncomfortable. It happens while Miles is at boarding school.

In episode 1, while Dani is walking outside with Miles and Flora, Miles finds something in the bushes and calls for them to come look. He then brings over a palm-sized spider which scares off Flora, but Dani is not afraid and gently takes the harmless spider into her own hands.

They are stalked by ghosts, usually hidden in frame or shown far behind them. A ghost continually walks by windows and leers in, scaring the other characters.

A character implies that his father sexually abused him and other young children in a conversation with his mother, who is complicit. The scene is a few minutes long. It is in episode 7 around the 40 minute mark when peter flashes back to his mom knocking at the door.

No finger or toe mutilation, however there are two scenes where there are close up shots of a bloody hand.

No but there are a couple scenes that could be considered torture if you squint. For instance a character is forced to watch as potentially bad things happen to others characters. So it depends on your point of view.

A character is struck by a vehicle and is shown to be bleeding out on the ground in Episode 4. That's the goriest part of the series I think. Another character falls from a great height in Episode 5, and their body is shown in the aftermath, but only a little blood and no bones/guts. Some partially decomposed bodies are shown in brief glimpses. Not a gory series besides those examples.

Yes - many characters are nearly killed or just flat-out killed this way. Characters are choked, drowned, and smothered throughout the series.

In episode 2 Miles attempts to choke out a roommate at boarding school as well as Dani while playing hide and seek. No one is seriously injured but they both struggle to breathe.

A child is abducted in Episode 8, and another child is almost abducted in Episode 9. Both are by a ghost though, so not a realistic portrayal of child abduction.

Characters make choking sounds when they're being, well, choked to death. Another character's body falls from a large height, killing them. The impact isn't shown on-screen, but the sound is heard.

Cops are featured a couple times, but they're pretty much useless. The show doesn't glorify them at all.

Dani has several panic attacks brought about by seeing her specific ghost. She hyperventilates, cries, and overall is having a very bad time.

In episode 5, Miles is possessed and says the pejorative “F” word derogatory to homosexual men when referring to a cigarette. Context matters but it can be triggering to some.

Kind of. The season is not told linearly but, on a second watch, we realize that one of the very first deaths, not initially shown, is a person of color.

A child is possessed by the spirit of an adult man, and sometimes gets borderline flirtatious with adult women. It's not too bad, but there's a moment where the kid strokes a woman's ear, which may skeeve you out.

Partial nudity when characters are getting dressed or during/after sex scenes. Nothing above a PG-13 rating.

In Episode 8, a character is shown to be slowly dying from a chronic illness. It's clear they're suffering, often kept in bed and needing to be cared for by others. It's a major part of the episode. In the first 4 episodes, a character mentions their mother is suffering from dementia and needs to be cared for. The mother is not seen, but the impact of her illness is called a "burden" and discussed in detail by the character.
