It looks like the latest entry in the Flanaverse won’t be moving forward with a second season. Netflix has cancelled Mike Flanagan’s series The Midnight Club two months after its series premiere, as first reported by The Wrap.
Based on the 1994 novel of the same name and other works by author Christopher Pike, The Midnight Club takes place at a hospice for terminally ill young adults, where 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.
The series stars Annarah Cymone, Igby Rigney, Matt Biedel, Rahul Kohli, Iman Benson, Ruth Codd, Aya Furukawa, Adia, Sauriyan Sapkota, and William Chris Sumpter, and it also sees appearances from Flanagan regulars Zach Gilford, Samantha Sloyan, and Rahul Kohli.
Flanagan is responsible for several other hit horror titles on Netflix, including The Haunting of Hill House, The Haunting of Bly Manor, and Midnight Mass. However, whereas those were all limited series, The Midnight Club was designed to be ongoing, given the plentiful amount of source material. Flanagan’s The Fall of the House of Usher is next on the menu, though Netflix has not yet announced a release date.
This news arrivals on the heels of another big announcement for Flanagan — he and Trevor Macy have signed an exclusive, multi-year series deal with Amazon Studios via their production company Intrepid Pictures, marking a wrap on the company’s pact with Netflix.
The Midnight Club is now streaming on Netflix.
