Netflix delays production on Mike Flanagan’s Midnight Mass

After ABC and WarnerMedia announced the halting of production on numerous series, Mike Flanagan (The Haunting of Hill House) took to Twitter to reveal that not only has Netflix delayed production on his upcoming horror series Midnight Mass, but also on all other scripted productions at the streaming service amidst global concerns of the coronavirus.

The cast will be a reunion between Flanagan and many Hill House stars, including Robert Longstreet, Annabeth Gish, and Henry Thomas. Also set to star in the series are Michael Trucco (Hunter Killer), Samantha Sloyan (Grey’s Anatomy), Rahul Abburi (Killer Ransom), Crystal Balint (The Bletchley Circle: San Francisco), Matt Biedel (Altered Carbon), Alex Essoe (Doctor Sleep), Rahul Kohli (Supergirl), Kristin Lehman (The Chronicles of Riddick), Igby Rigney (Blue Bloods) and Annarah Shephard.

In Midnight Mass, an isolated island community experiences miraculous events — and frightening omens — after the arrival of a charismatic, mysterious young priest.

The horror series will consist of seven episodes and will be executive produced by creator/director Flanagan and Trevor Macy (The Haunting of Hill House, Oculus). The series was picked up under the streamer’s multi-year television deal with Flanagan and Macy of Intrepid Pictures and is set to begin production this spring in Vancouver with Flanagan directing all seven episodes.

Flanagan’s The Haunting of Bly Manor, the follow-up to the first season of his horror anthology series, The Haunting of Hill House, is currently being developed.

The Haunting of Bly Manor is inspired by Henry James’ psychological gothic horror novella The Turn of The Screw, which takes place almost entirely in an old country mansion. There, two young orphans are looked after by a young governess by whom most of the story is narrated by.

A modern reimagining of Shirley Jackson’s iconic novel of the same name, The Haunting of Hill House Season 1 explored a group of siblings who, as children, grew up in what would go on to become the most famous haunted house in the country. Now adults, and forced back together in the face of tragedy, the family must finally confront the ghosts of their past — some of which still lurk in their minds while others may actually be stalking the shadows of Hill House. Created, directed and executive-produced by horror mastermind Mike Flanagan (Gerald’s Game), The Haunting of Hill House is a complex family drama wrapped in a chilling horror story. Trevor Macy served as executive producer alongside Flanagan. Meredith Averill acts as co-showrunner and executive producer. Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank executive produce, as well.

The Haunting of Hill House is written, directed and executive produced by Flanagan. His producing partner Trevor Macy will also executive produce alongside Amblin TV’s Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey.

The Haunting of Bly Manor will premiere in 2020 on Netflix.
