'Haunting of Hill House' Star Oliver Jackson-Cohen Returning for 'Haunting of Bly Manor'
Jackson-Cohen will join his "Hill House" co-star Victoria Pedretti to appear in Season 2's "Haunting of Bly Manor."
Season 2 is inspired by Henry James’ psychological gothic horror novella "The Turn of the Screw," which takes place almost entirely in an old country mansion. There, two young orphans are looked after by a young governess, who also narrates most of the novel.
Pedretti will play the governess. Jackson-Cohen will play Peter, described as "a charming fellow." Carla Gugino is also in talks to return for Season 2.
It seems like creator Mike Flanagan is taking a page from Ryan Murphy's "American Horror Story" book and recycling his cast members from season to season.
“The Haunting of Bly Manor” is set to launch on Netflix in 2020.
