"The Haunting of Bly Manor" is welcoming another familiar face.
Season 2 of the Netflix horror anthology series is bringing back Henry Thomas, who played young Hugh Crain, the patriarch who moves his family into the titular abode of "The Haunting of Hill House."
"Haunting of" creator Mike Flanagan announced the news that Thomas will return for "Bly Manor" on Twitter:
"Bly Manor" 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.
The season is bringing back several cast members from "Hill House. Victoria Pedretti will play the governess. Oliver Jackson-Cohen will play Peter, described as "a charming fellow." Carla Gugino is also in talks to return for Season 2. Thomas' role on "Bly Manor" is unknown.
It definitely seems like 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.
