It may be a new house and a new literary adaptation, but The Haunting of Hill House‘s Victoria Pedretti will return as the lead in the second entry in Netflix’s horror anthology series, The Haunting of Bly Manor in 2020.
Pedretti, the actor who portrayed the tragic Nell in The Haunting of Hill House, made the announcement official on twitter with the following video:

The Haunting of Bly Manor is inspired by Henry James’ classic Victorian horror story The Turn of the Screw, which takes place almost entirely in an old country mansion. Pedretti will play the governess, Dani, who is tasked with looking after two “unusual” children.
Pedretti will also appear in Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming Once Upon a Time In Hollywood this July.
