The actress is now confirmed to be leading the follow-up, The Haunting of Bly Manor, according to the streaming company.
Pedretti is also currently set to appear in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and Apple’s Amazing Stories anthology series. This time around, Pedretti’s set to portray a governess, Dani, who is looking after two unique children.
Some fans were sceptical about how the show could have a follow-up after the first season came to an end. The solution is apparently to make it an anthology like American Horror Story with the same cast playing different characters.

Carla Gugino (Olivia Crain) has sparked speculation after teasing that she’d love to work with creator Mike Flanagan again.
“Well, I can’t say anything definitive at this point, other than Mike and I really love collaborating and working together and any opportunity where a schedule allows for us to do that, we will, and I would be honored to,” Gugino told TheWrap.
The title suggests the series will be based on an 1890s horror story called The Turn of the Screw. The story involves a governess watching over two orphans following the death of their parents at Bly Manor. She begins seeing ghosts, and the situation gets sinister.
