A brand new series, straight from the mind of the creator of Haunting of Hill House Mike Flanagan is set to drop on Netflix and you're so not ready.
Netflix dropped the trailer forThe Midnight Club, based on the 1994 novel of the same name by Christopher Pike, and people are already preparing themselves for 'sleepless nights'.
Check it out here:
Mike Flanagan first made a name for himself among Netflix horror fans with the The Haunting of Hill House (2018), before going on to bring people hits like The Haunting of Bly Manor (2020) and mini-series Midnight Mass (2021).
The Midnight Club tells the story of a gang of young adults living in a hospice who meet each night in the library to tell each other sinister stories and look for signs of life after death.
One night, the group decide to make a pact that the first one to succumb to their terminal illness must communicate with the others from beyond the grave - and when one of them dies, the unusual occurrences begin, and the Midnight Club will learn that this hospice comes with a unique history.
A Netflix synopsis for the 10-episode thriller series reads: "At a hospice for terminally ill young adults, eight patients come together every night at midnight to tell each other stories - and make a pact that the next of them to die will give the group a sign from the beyond."
Leah Fong has been slated as the series writer, executive producer and co-creator alongside Mike Flangan.
The pair previously worked together on The Haunting of Bly Manor.
After announcing plans to film The Midnight Club back in 2021, Mike revealed that he had been 'dreaming of this project' since he was a teenager.
I've been dreaming of this project since I was a teenager, and I cannot wait to embark on yet another adventure with my @intrepid partner in crime (and television) Trevor Macy, as well as the fantastic crew we've been cultivating. More to come as we get closer to shooting.— Mike Flanagan (@flanaganfilm) February 1, 2021
As soon as Netflix dropped the trailer, both Mike Flanagan fans and book lovers went nuts.
"I’m prepared to experience sleepless nights and heartbreak all over again", tweeted one excited viewer.
"It's that time of year where I am blessed by King Mike and his stories!!!!" raved a second.
"Mike Flanagan has yet to disappoint me, I will be seated", wrote a third.
And a fourth joked: "I see Mike Flanagan, I click. Oh and sure I'll be watching."
The Midnight Club will star Iman Benson, Adia, Igby Rigney, Ruth Codd, Aya Furukawa, Annarah Shephard, William Chris Sumpter, and Sauriyan Sapkota.
