Mike Flanagan’s ‘The Haunting of Bly Manor’ Will See the Return of Oliver Jackson-Cohen, in a New Role

Jul 15, 2019

The second season of the Netflix anthology series dubbed ‘The Haunting of Bly Manor’ will see the return of Oliver Jackson-Cohen. He will play Peter, a charming fellow.

Jackson-Cohen played Luke Crain in ‘The Haunting of Hill House,’ the first season of the Mike Flanagan series. Other credits include George Tillman Jr.’s ‘Faster,’ PBS/ITV’s ‘Mr. Selfridge,’ and NBC’s ‘Emerald City.’ Next, he will play the titular character in Leigh Whannell’s ‘The Invisible Man,’ releasing March 13, 2020.

He joins another returning cast member: Victoria Pedretti (‘Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood’). She will play the governess, Dani, who is looking after two unique children in an old country mansion.

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.
