Mike Flanagan’s ‘The Haunting of Bly Manor’ Will See the Return of Henry Thomas, in a New Role

Aug 28, 2019

The second season of the Netflix anthology series dubbed ‘The Haunting of Bly Manor’ will see the return of Henry Thomas. However, his new role is unknown.

Thomas played young Hugh Crain in ‘The Haunting of Hill House,’ the first season of the Mike Flanagan series. Not only has he collaborated with Flanagan in the past, with ‘Ouija: Origin of Evil’ and ‘Gerald’s Game,’ he was Elliott in Steven Spielberg’s ‘E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial.’ Next, he will appear in the upcoming DC Universe series ‘Stargirl,’ premiering in 2020.

He joins returning cast members Victoria Pedretti (‘Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood’) and Oliver Jackson-Cohen (‘Emerald City’). Pedretti will play the governess, Dani, who is looking after two unique children in an old country mansion. Jackson-Cohen will portray Peter, a charming fellow.

Additionally, more casting announcements will occur on Thursday and Friday.

Meanwhile, this next season will center around a new story and new characters. Bly Manor is the setting of Henry James’ psychological gothic horror novella ‘The Turn of the Screw.’ This is in the same vein of the first season, where Shirley Jackson’s novel ‘The Haunting’ was the source material.
