The actor joins previously-announced star Victoria Pedretti in returning to the anthology horror series.

Fresh off his casting as the titular character in Blumhouse's upcoming The Invisible Man, Oliver Jackson-Cohen has found himself another horror role, returning to Netflix for The Haunting of Bly Manor. The standout actor played the adult Luke Crain in Mike Flanagan's The Haunting of Hill House and will return to the anthology series to play an all-new character in the all-new story.

As reported by TheWrap, Jackson-Cohen is set to play "a charming fellow" and will join fellow returning star Victoria Pedretti, who was tapped for the leading role in the follow-up season and played the part of the adult Nell Crain in Hill House. Further casting details have not yet been announced, but we wouldn't be surprised to see another returning star or two if this trend continues.

The new story will be based on Henry James’ 1898 horror novella, The Turn of the Screw, which tells the story of a governess who becomes convinced that the grounds of her remote estate are haunted as she raises her two children there. Much like with The Haunting of Hill House, we can expect this adaptation of the source material to be somewhat loose, but we have no doubt it will be every bit as gripping and terrifying as Hill House was.

The Haunting of Bly Manor will premiere sometime in 2020, but no further details are available at this time. Be sure to stay tuned to Dead Entertainment for all the latest news and updates on the Haunting series in the coming weeks and months.
