The Midnight Club has been canceled after season 1 on Netflix. The series premieres with 10 episodes on Netflix on October 7, 2022. Mike Flanagan and Leah Fong created the show. The plot follows: An enigmatic doctor runs the Brightcliffe Home hospice outside Seattle, which houses eight young, terminally ill adults. They meet at midnight every night to tell each other scary stories. They have a pact that the first one to succumb to their disease is responsible for communicating with the others from beyond the grave.
According to The Wrap, The Midnight Club series was in the top 10 on the Netflix chart for three weeks. The cancelation decision came up when the viewership numbers stacked up unfavourably with the series’ cost. The series ranked at No. 4, with 18.8 million hours viewed, and gained traction in week two with 49.9 million viewing hours, peaking at No. 3. After sliding back to No. 5 in its third week, the series dropped out after week four and faced heavy competition from “The Watcher,” “Dahmer,” “Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities,” “From Scratch” and “Big Mouth.”
The Midnight Club stars Iman Benson as Ilonka, Igby Rigney as Kevin, Ruth Codd as Anya, Annarah Cymone as Sandra, Chris Sumpter as Spencer, Adia as Cheri, Aya Furukawa as Natsuki, Sauriyan Sapkota as Amesh, Matt Biedel as Tim, and Heather Langenkamp as Dr. Georgina Stanton.
In an interview with The Wrap, Flanagan told that the upcoming series was “blood-soaked.” He added, “It’s crazy. It is unlike anything I’ve ever done but in the other direction. My favorite way to describe it to people is like ‘Hill House’ is a string quartet, ‘Bly Manor’ is this delicate, kind of beautiful piece of classical piano music, and ‘The Fall of the House of Usher’ is heavy metal. It’s rock ‘n’ roll.”
The Midnight Club season 1 is now streaming on Netflix.
