Mike Flanagan’s Next Horror Series Has Netflix Fans Buzzing

To the further delight of fans, Netflix Geeked followed their announcement with a reminder that “Mike Flanagan and Intrepid Pictures’ next Netflix horror series is the previously announced THE MIDNIGHT CLUB, an adaptation of Christopher Pike’s novel.” This past spring, Flanagan shared his enthusiasm for the project with followers, calling it a “dream come true” and revealing that he “began brainstorming an adaptation of THE MIDNIGHT CLUB as a teenager.” The novel centers around a group of dying teens in a hospice home — who, as the title suggests, get together at midnight each night — and make a Houdini-esque “pact that the first of them to die would make every effort to contact the others…from beyond the grave” (via Nerdist). As one fan wrote in response to the duel feature news, “You guys keep making em. I’ll keep watching em.” (via Twitter)

“The Midnight Club” will feature a handful of familiar faces from Flanagan’s “Midnight Mass,” including Samantha Sloyan, Zach Gilford, and Annarah Cymone. The director, writer, producer, creator, and Salem, Massachusetts native (no surprise there) told followers that it was “an honor to introduce a new generation of young horror fans to the world of Christopher Pike” (via Twitter). Although no official release date for the series has been announced, fans can look (and are looking) forward to the series reuniting Flanagan with “Once Upon a Time” and “The Magicians” writer Leah Fong, whom he worked with on “The Haunting of Bly Manor.”
