Mike Flanagan took to Twitter today to drop some exciting casting news for the upcoming Netflix horror series The Midnight Club. Flanagan is working alongside Leah Fong to bring bestselling author Christopher Pike‘s novel to life. The series hails from Flanagan and Trevor Macy‘s Intrepid Pictures.
The Midnight Club follows a group of terminally ill teenagers who live at a hospice called Rotterdam Home. The group meets at midnight to tell stories of intrigue and horror. One night, they make a pact that the first of them to die would make every effort o contact the others from the great beyond.
The Midnight Club members will be portrayed by Adia, Igby Rigney, Ruth Codd, William Chris Sumpter, Aya Furukawa, Annarah Shephard and Sauriyan Sapkota. They will be joined by familiar faces Zach Gilford, Samantha Sloyan and Matt Biedel. Flanagan also shared that we can expect to see more familiar faces from Intrepid Pictures projects as guest stars. He rounds out the casting by announcing Heather Langenkamp, a horror queen known for her roles in Wes Craven‘s Nightmare on Elm Street will be taking on the role of the doctor who runs Rotterdam Home.
My childhood nostalgia is at an all-time high with all of this The Midnight Club news. Hopefully, now that the casting is set, they can start filming. Because the sooner we get this, the sooner I can binge-watch this series over and over. Let us know who excited you are for this casting and check back with us for more news!
