Netflix has just dropped the trailer for their latest thriller series, and if the creator is anything to go by, we’re in for a real treat (or scare).
The new series, The Midnight Club, comes from the creator of Haunting of Hill House, Mike Flanagan and is hitting the streaming service very soon.
Based on the 1994 novel of the same name by Christopher Pike, the trailer has just dropped and it’s enough to give you a real scare.
The creator is best known for his work on Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House in 2018 before going on to create 2020’s The Haunting of Bly Manor and 2021’s mini-series Midnight Mass.
The Midnight Club follows a gang of young adults who live in a hospice who meet in the library each night to tell each other dark and disturbing stories as they look for signs of the after life.
On one night they make a pact that whoever is the first to die from their terminal illness must come back to communicate to them as a ghost, and then when it happens – unusual things begin to happen in the hospice and they learn about it’s interesting history.
The Netflix synopsis for the 10-episode 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 is credited as a series writer, executive producer and co-creator alongside Mike Flanagan, who worked on The Haunting of Bly Manor.
The series was announced back in 2021, with Mike revealing that he had been “dreaming of this project” since he was a teenager.
