Filming begins on Mike Flanagan's Netflix show 'The Midnight Club'

Acclaimed filmmaker Mike Flanagan has confirmed that production is officially underway on his adaptation of Christopher Pike’s The Midnight Club.

Although it remains uncertain when production officially got started and can be effected to finish, it’s not out of the realms of possibility for the show to land on Netflix before the end of 2021. This project is one close to Flanagan’s heart, having noted before that he’d dreamed of adapting the Midnight Club since he was a teenager. The filmmaker is well-accustomed to this kind of project, having previously headed up adaptations of The Haunting of Hill House and The Haunting of Bly Manor.

Flanagan previously said: “I began brainstorming an adaptation of The Midnight Club as a teenager, so this is a dream come true. It’s an honor(sic) to introduce a new generation of young horror fans to the world of Christopher Pike. Oh, and for you fellow Pike fans out there… the article is correct, we will be incorporating a lot of his books into the series. So whatever your favorite(sic) Pike book is, there’s a chance it’ll be part of the show.”

He’s also revealed who’ll be starring in the picture: “Portraying the titular club of terminally ill young adults is an amazing group of young actors. The Midnight Club is made up of Adia, Igby Rigney, Ruth Codd, William Chris Sumpter, Aya Furukawa, Annarah Shephard, and Sauriyan Sapkota,” Flanagan revealed.

“And joining them… I’m thrilled to welcome back some familiar faces as Zach Gilford, Samantha Sloyan, and Matt Biedel join the cast in supporting roles. (Some other familiar faces from previous Intrepid projects to pop up as guest stars along the way.)”

The filmmaker continued, “And finally… Anchoring the show as the enigmatic doctor who runs this hospice for young adults, I’m honored(sic) to welcome Heather Langenkamp. To horror fans like myself, Heather is royalty, and I am so excited to work with her. I’ve been dreaming of this project since I was a teenager, and I cannot wait to embark on yet another adventure with my [Intrepid] partner in crime (and television) Trevor Macy, as well as the fantastic crew we’ve been cultivating. More to come as we get closer to shooting.”
