Netflix Confirms Mike Flanagan’s ‘The Fall of the House of Usher’ for 2023 Release


For their first-ever upfronts presentation, Netflix has opted to announce its entire fall 2023 slate, and among those announced was Mike Flanagan’s Edgar Allan Poe-inspired series, The Fall of the House of Usher.

The limited series, inspired by the works of 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, Flanagan, the horror giant behind other terrifying Netflix series such as Midnight Mass, 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 ManorMidnight Mass, and 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. The Poe-inspired project will be the final project Flanagan completed at Netflix before moving on to his overall deal with Prime Video.

An exact premiere date for the series remains unknown, though Flanagan recently stated the date will be announced “soon.” You can follow along with our House of Usher coverage here.
