HAUNTING of Hill House fans are in for a treat as showmaker’s have confirmed the return of three major cast members.
Original stars Katie Siegel, Victoria Pedretti and Oliver Jackson-Cohen have all signed up for the second installment of the terrifying Netflix series, The Haunting of Bly Manor.
While series one was a modern reimagining of the Shirley Jackson novel, Bly Manor is based on the classic horror novella The Turn of The Screw by Henry James.
The story – penned in 1898 – tells the story of a governess who goes to Bly Manor to care for two recently orphaned children, Miles and Flora.
However, it quickly becomes clear that the grounds of the estate are – of course – haunted.
Siegel, 37, played psychiatrist Theo Crain who had supernatural abilities in season one, but the nature of her new character is being kept well under wraps.
Fans have already been told that Pedretti will play governess Dani who “takes care of two very unusual children”.
The announcement came months after the actress was confirmed as the female lead in series two of Netflix thriller You.
