The first look at “Midnight Mass” has arrived as “The Haunting of Hill House” creator Mike Flanagan presents his latest horror series for Netflix…
Mike Flanagan — the creator behind “The Haunting of Hill House” and “The Haunting of Bly Manor” — is back with his latest creation after revealing that he had no current plans to do another season of “The Haunting” series.
His new show “Midnight Mass” will explore an all new terrifying tale in this seven episode series that will debut on Netflix on September 24 and the first teaser trailer has arrived.
Here’s the synopsis for “Midnight Mass” courtesy of Netflix:
“Midnight Mass tells the tale of a small, isolated island community whose existing divisions are amplified by the return of a disgraced young man (Zach Gilford) and the arrival of a charismatic priest (Hamish Linklater). When Father Paul’s appearance on Crockett Island coincides with unexplained and seemingly miraculous events, a renewed religious fervor takes hold of the community: but do these miracles come at a price?”
While this isn’t a sequel to either of “The Haunting” series, “Midnight Mass” will reunite Flanagan with several familiar faces from his past projects including his wife Kate Siegel, Rahul Kohli, Alex Essoe, Annabeth Gish, Robert Longstreet, Samantha Sloyan and Henry Thomas.
Along with the trailer, Flanagan penned a letter expressing his love for “Midnight Mass” while calling it his “favorite project so far.”
You can read the full letter from Flanagan below:
“I’m just going to admit it…Midnight Mass is my favorite project so far. As a former altar boy, about to celebrate three years of sobriety, it’s not hard to see what makes this so personal. The ideas at the root of this show scare me to my core. There is darkness at work on Crockett Island. Some of it is supernatural, but the scariest is born of human nature.
“The darkness that animates this story isn’t hard to see in our own world, unfortunately,” he continues. “But this show is about something else as well… faith itself. One of the great mysteries of human nature. How even in the darkness, in the worst of it, in the absence of light — and hope — we sing. I hope you enjoy our song.”
This one is special. Cannot wait for you to see it. pic.twitter.com/z7elBvERSb
