Following two massive waves of casting announcements for the upcoming limited series from Mike Flanagan and Intrepid Pictures in partnership with Netflix, Willa Fitzgerald has been added to the massive ensemble for The Fall of the House of Usher.

Fitzgerald has several roles in well-known projects such as 2017’s Little Women and Blood Money, but is most known for her role as final girl Emma Duval in seasons 1 and 2 of MTV’s Scream series. Returning to the world of horror in the Flanagan-verse seems like a great fit for her. As of now her role is unconfirmed, though this is now the case for many of the confirmed ensemble members for the largest cast for an Intrepid Pictures project to date.

The limited series, inspired by the works of Edgar Allan Poe, receives its title from the short story of the same name originally published in 1893. While details on the series are scarce in its beginning, Netflix did announce that the series will tell its story across eight episodes. Flanagan describes the limited series as a “modern remix” of some of Poe’s most well-known stories.

Flanagan will be the writer for the fifth series under Intrepid Films for Netflix following the success of The Haunting of Hill HouseThe Haunting of Bly Manor, the recently released Midnight Mass and upcoming series The Midnight Club. In addition to writing, Flanagan will direct half of the series’ episodes with frequent collaborator Michael Fimognari directing the other half. Trevor Macy will serve as executive producer.

Flanagan also confirmed this week that production on the series would begin this week. You can follow along with our House of Usher coverage here.
