Mike Flanagan, the creator of The Haunting of Hill House, The Haunting of Bly Manor, and Midnight Mass has collaborated with Netflix once more. Flanagan is also known for horror films including Oculus, Hush, and Before I Wake, as well as film adaptations of Stephen King books like Gerald’s Game and Doctor Sleep.
The Midnight Club is the latest unsettling addition to his portfolio. Flanagan and Leah Fong created this Netflix series based on Christopher Pike’s novel of the same name. This article will tell you everything you need to know about Flanagan’s next Netflix film, The Midnight Club. So, shall we get started?
What Is the Midnight Club All About?
The Midnight Club is eerily similar to the Nickelodeon show Are You Afraid of the Dark? from the 1990s, which featured a gang of kids known as “The Midnight Society.” The Midnight Club, on the other hand, has a far darker premise.
A group of terminally ill young adults resides in a hospice house under the care of their doctor. They get together every night at midnight and take turns sharing spooky stories.
They also make a promise to each other that whoever dies first will be responsible for attempting to communicate with the group from beyond the grave. Strange and incomprehensible things begin to happen after one of them dies.
Release Date of The Midnight Club
The Midnight Club is one of the most anticipated Netflix series. Since its announcement, and following the success of The Haunting of Bly Manor, fans have been waiting not only for a teaser that would introduce them to the world of their favorite stories in adult live-action for the first time but also for the date on which they could watch the show.
Fortunately for them, Netflix has confirmed that The Midnight Club will be available on the streaming service on October 7, 2022, according to whats on netflix. So, to the joy of fans, the release date is closer than expected and not too far from Halloween, which makes sense given that October is the most magical month for horror.
The Cast of The Midnight Club
The Midnight Club was created by Mike Flanagan and Leah Fong, who previously worked with Netflix on The Haunting of Hill House, The Haunting of Bly Manor, and Midnight Mass. Along with Trevor Macy, Julia Bicknell, and novelist Christopher Pike, the two act as executive producers.
The Midnight Club will star Iman Benson, Igby Rigney, Ruth Codd, Annarah Cymone, Chris Sumpter, Adia, Aya Furukawa, Sauriyan Sapkota, Matt Biedel (who just appeared in Narcos: Mexico), Samantha Sloyan, Zach Gilford, and Heather Langenkamp from A Nightmare on Elm Street. The streaming service, however, has not specified which roles they will play.
The majority of The Midnight Club cast consists of new and outstanding young performers that began their careers in the industry a few years ago but did not land their first major part until now.

However, the majority of them occurred on the set of Midnight Mass, so there is no doubt that the crew will be one of the most assembled in the entire Netflix repertoire, as this is not their first time working together.
However, Netflix has yet to determine whether, while the core cast will not change, the rest of the cast will fluctuate over the episodes and the stories told via them, or whether the already announced cast will be present in all episodes, regardless of the story they tell. The latter would be a significant departure from Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities.
The Plot of The Midnight Club
The Midnight Club series is based on Christopher Pike’s renowned writings. Stories like Witch, Gimme a Kiss, Road to Nowhere, and The Wicked Heart are examples. They are not, however, the only titles that the series will adapt, so fans are hoping that Netflix will soon unveil all of the stories that will be featured in the show.
The streaming service confirmed quickly that the first season of Mike Flanagan’s The Midnight Club will consist of 10 one-hour episodes. The story takes place at Brightcliffe Manor in 1994, the same year that Christopher Pike’s book was published. This truth will undoubtedly bring back memories of the 1990s, which will delight millennials.
According to the synopsis for The Midnight Club, each episode is meant to be self-contained, dedicating itself entirely to adapting a Christopher Pike story with its own beginning, middle, and conclusion, and thus not connecting the story with the following episodes, whose only common thread will be the main characters and the meeting they have every midnight to tell horror stories.
Is There a Midnight Club Trailer?
Sure, there is! You may see the first teaser below:
It’s simply a brief teaser that doesn’t reveal much about the plot, but you can see each of the main characters repeating parts of The Midnight Club members’ toast. “To those who came before, those who came after, us now, and those who will come after.”
Seen or unseen, seen or unseen, here but not here.” On September 20, 2022, the first full-length trailer was published, followed by another teaser on September 30. Here’s the official trailer:
