It looks like the Crains will be reunited in The Haunting of Bly Manor. Henry Thomas and Katie Siegel have just been confirmed to join the highly anticipated follow-up to The Haunting of Hill House which already has their former castmates Victoria Pedretti and Oliver Jackson-Cohen.
The news comes from series creator Mike Flanagan, who announced the casting on Twitter. However, he did not reveal Thomas' and Siegel's role just yet. Take a look at his tweets below.
I'm beyond thrilled to announce that the inestimable, irreplaceable, invaluable Henry Thomas has joined the cast of THE HAUNTING OF BLY MANOR.— Mike Flanagan (@flanaganfilm) August 28, 2019
Thomas had previously played the younger version of Hugh Crain, father to the four Crain siblings who had to live in Hill House for several months. His adult twin children Luke and Nell Crain were played by Jackson-Cohen and Pedretti, respectively. Siegel portrayed the second Crain sister Theo.
Pedretti was the first cast member to be announced for The Haunting of Hill House Season 2. She will play the governess assigned to look after the two young children who live in Bly Manor. Jackson-Cohen's character is named Peter and is described as "a charming young man."
Interestingly, Bly Manor might be bringing back other cast members from Hill House. It was previously reported that Carla Gugino is interested in returning to the second season but stated that she is still coordinating her schedule with Flanagan. If Gugino returns, this would mean that at least five Crains will be working together again on the series.
The Haunting of Bly Manor has not yet been given a release date but is expected to premiere on Netflix in 2020.
