You know how the story goes, when the clock strikes 12 it’s all over.
Netflix canceled their young adult series The Midnight Club after only one season. Adapted from a book by Christopher Pike, the story examined terminally ill teens living at Brightcliffe Hospice, a spooky mansion with its own secrets.
Flanagan and Leah Fong co-created the adaptation that was set at Brightcliffe Hospice, a place for terminally ill teenagers to transition on their own terms, but it comes with its own eerie history. It followed eight of Brightcliffe’s residents, who also happen to be members of the Midnight Club, a long-running group where members share their own ghost stories and search for signs of life beyond death. wOne night they make a pact that the first of them to die would make every effort to contact the others from beyond the grave.
Iman Benson, Igby Rigney, Ruth Codd, Annarah Cymone, Chris Sumpter, Adia, Aya Furukawa, Sauriyan Sapkota, Matt Biedel, Samantha Sloyan, with Zach Gilford and Heather Langenkamp starred in the series.
The cancellation comes on the heels of executive producers Mike Flanagan and Trevor Macy exiting their overall deal at Netflix for a new pact with Amazon Studios. Flanagan and Macy’s Intrepid Pictures had been under a Netflix deal since 2019.
The Midnight Club, which launched Oct. 7, consisted of 10 episodes, the first of which broke the world record for most jump scares in a TV episode.
All 10 episodes of The Midnight Club are currently streaming on Netflix.
TheWrap was the first to report “Midnight Club’s” cancellation.
