It looks like the twin thing will continue in the Haunting of Hill House sequel. Oliver Jackson-Cohen has just been confirmed to reunite with show sister Victoria Pedretti in The Haunting of Bly Manor.

The casting news was reported by The Wrap, which confirms Jackson-Cohen will play "a charming young man" named Peter in the follow-up to the highly successful Netflix series. It has not been revealed whether Jackson-Cohen's character will be connected to Pedretti's governess in the show.

Jackson-Cohen and Pedretti played the adult version of twins Luke and Nell Crain, respectively, in The Haunting of Hill House. The two characters were so greatly affected by their experience living as children in a haunted house that it affected them in their adulthood.

The twins might not be the only ones returning in The Haunting of Bly Manor. Carla Gugino, who played the twins' mother Olivia Crain, had previously teased on wanting to work with creator Mike Flanagan on the sequel. Considering that the new chapter is bringing back actors from the first season, it's possible that Gugino will be joining her onscreen children soon.

The return to the Netflix series isn't the only major role for Jackson-Cohen. He was recently cast in the titular role of The Invisible Man alongside Elizabeth Moss. The role was initially given to Johnny Depp but has since been recast when Leigh Whannell came on board to write and direct.

The Haunting of Bly Manor has not yet been given an official release date. Nevertheless, the series is expected to return on Netflix by 2020.
