We finally have the release date and first trailer for Mike Flanagan’s next Netflix series, Midnight Mass! This is exciting news for fans of The Haunting of Hill House and The Haunting of Bly Manor, as Flanagan was the genius behind that series also.
Midnight Mass will be the fourth project that Flanagan has produced for Netflix. Bloody Disgusting reports that this project has ties to two of Flanagan’s other films, Hush and Gerald’s Game. In the movie Hush, Maggie Young wrote a book entitled Midnight Mass, and it later appeared in Gerald’s Game.
Midnight Mass release date
Despite the COVID-19 related shutdowns across the country in 2020, Flanagan got creative and was able to proceed with the filming on Midnight Mass. We were initially expecting a release date around August 2021, given that would mark a year after the start of production. We also thought around October would be a good time because of the Halloween season.
Well, as confirmed today, Midnight Mass is hitting Netflix on September 24, 2021!
Midnight Mass cast
The Midnight Mass cast is excellent! Three cast members from The Haunting of Hill House will be returning for this series, Kate Siegel, Annabeth Gish, and Henry Thomas.
Joining the trio in Midnight Mass will also be Zach Gilford, Hamish Linklater, Michael Trucco, Samantha Sloyan, Rahul Abburi, Crystal Balint, and Matt Biedel.
Two actors from the film Doctor Sleep, which Flanagan also directed, Alex Esseo and Robert Longstreet, have also joined the cast.
