‘The Haunting Of Hill House’ star joins returning cast for ‘Bly Manor’

While we’re awaiting the follow-up season to The Haunting Of Hill House, some of the actors are confirming their return and today we’re finding out yet another cast member will be returning.

Other actors confirmed to be joining the new season include Victoria Pedretti, Oliver Jackson-Cohen and Henry Thomas who will all play new characters.

Siegel previously played Theodora Crain in the first season.

Creator Mike Flanagan confirmed the news on Twitter today, but he’s apparently got some more news arriving Friday as well.

The actress had a bit of fun in her response to the creator’s announcement, tweeting a cheeky reply back at him.

Fans were initially sceptical about how the show could have a follow-up with the way the first season ended. The solution is apparently to make it an anthology like American Horror Story with the same cast playing different characters.

The new 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.

The Haunting of Bly Manor will be premiering on Netflix sometime in 2020, though no exact release date has been revealed.
