The Haunting of Hill House breakout Victoria Pedretti will be back as the lead in the the second installment of the Netflix horror anthology series, The Haunting of Bly Manor, from Mike Flanagan, Trevor Macy, Amblin TV and Paramount TV. It is slated to debut in 2020.
Pedretti has quickly become one of Netflix’s acting MVPs — the young actress also is set as the female lead in the upcoming second season of the streamer’s psychological thriller drama series You.
The Haunting of Bly Manor is inspired by Henry James’ psychological gothic horror novella The Turn of the Screw, which takes place almost entirely in an old country mansion. There, two young orphans are looked after by a young governess by whom most of the story is narrated by.
Victoria filmed a short video explaining who she would be playing in the series and you can watch that right below!
