Another two prominent members of Netflix's "The Haunting of Hill House" are returning for its follow-up, "The Haunting of Bly Manor".
Actors Kate Siegel and Henry Thomas are set to play new roles in "Bly Manor", director Mike Flanagan shared on Twitter.
"I'm beyond thrilled to announce that the inestimable, irreplaceable, invaluable Henry Thomas has joined the cast of 'The Haunting of Bly Manor'," Flanagan, who created and directed the show, posted on Wednesday.
A day later, the director tweeted, "The Haunting wouldn't be The Haunting without fan favourite Kate Siegel... and I'm elated to confirm that she'll be joining us at Bly Manor."

The follow-up reunites Siegel and Thomas with "Hill House" co-stars Oliver Jackson-Cohen and Victoria Pedretti.
"Hill House", which premiered on the streaming platform in 2018, focused on the Crain family, shifting between their past selves living in the spirit-infested Hill House and their present selves dealing with both the psychological and supernatural demons that haunt them.
The show's worldwide success led to Flanagan and executive producer Trevor Macy signing a multi-year deal with Netflix.
"Bly Manor" derives its title from the setting of Henry James' 1898 novella "The Turn of the Screw", which features the story of two orphans looked after by a young governess, who acts as the narrator.
It is scheduled to premiere on Netflix in 2020.
