It's almost a complete Crane reunion over at Bly Manner. Oliver Jackson-Cohen has just announced that he'll also be joining the second installment of Netflix's new Haunting anthology series, The Haunting of Bly Manor.
Jackson-Cohen, who played the troubled adult Luke Crane in The Haunting of Hill House, is taking a different approach to his new character, Peter. According to The Wrap, which first reported the news, Peter will be "a charming fellow," which hopefully means that Jackson-Cohen gets the chance to use his native British accent, something that was missing for the American Hill House. He lives at Bly Manor and he makes "life very difficult" for everyone there.

While Bly Manor is not a sequel to Hill House, another Season 1 cast member is also returning for the series, à la American Horror Story. Victoria Pedretti, who played the doomed Nell, has signed on to play a governess named Dani "who takes care of two very unusual children." Time will only tell if the other first season cast members, including Michiel Huisman, Carla Gugino, and Elizabeth Reaser, will also join the cast.
Taking to Twitter, Jackson-Cohen excitedly shared the news himself, teasing, "Victoria, I'm coming to find you."
