Mike Flanagan has announced a bunch of new cast members for “The Haunting of Bly Manor,” the upcoming follow-up to Netflix’s “The Haunting of Hill House” horror series.
Catherine Parker, who played the ghostly Poppy Hill, will return for a new role and is joined by T’Nia Miller (“Years and Years”), Rahul Kohli (“iZombie”), Amelia Eve (“Big Boys Don’t Cry “), Benjamin Ainsworth (“Flora and Ulysses”) and Amelie Smith (“EastEnders”).
The new season is inspired by Henry James’ gothic horror novella “The Turn of The Screw” which takes place almost entirely in an old country mansion where two young orphans are looked after by a young governess by whom most of the story is narrated by.
Ainsworth and Smith will play the orphans. The group join fellow returnees Henry Thomas, Oliver Jackson-Cohen and Victoria Pedretti.
“The Haunting of Bly Manor” will premiere in 2020 on Netflix.
