With The Haunting of Bly Manor set to debut on Netflix later this year, The Haunting of Hill House actor Oliver Jackson-Cohen, who is set to return for the new season as a new character, has praised creator Mike Flanagan for making the second season “just as good, if not better” than the first.
In an interview with ComicBook, Jackson-Cohen described Bly Manor as “phenomenal” and praised Flanagan for his work on the highly-anticipated second season.
“I feel like there’s a sniper from Netflix, I have to be so careful about what I say. It’s truly kind of phenomenal what Mike’s done with the second season. It’s weird because I think the first one, we were so, not shocked, but it was overwhelming how well it was received and, globally, how massive it became. And so how do you approach a second season and make it just as good, if not better? And Mike’s kind of done it. I go back up in about 20 minutes back to Vancouver to continue and we wrap next week so it will be out by the end of the year. I really, really hope people like it.”
The cast for The Haunting of Bly Manor includes Hill House returnees Kate Siegel, Catherine Parker, Henry Thomas, Oliver Jackson-Cohen and Victoria Pedretti along with T’Nia Miller (Years and Years), Amelia Eve (Big Boys Don’t Cry), Amelie Smith (EastEnders), Benjamin Ainsworth (Flora and Ulysses) and Rahul Kohli (iZombie).
