Mike Flanagan (Doctor Sleep, Gerald’s Game, Hush) might be helming only one episode of The Haunting of Bly Manor—but we’re thrilled to hear he’s directing every episode of Midnight Mass, another Netflix show that was announced last year.
The seven-episode series will centre around an isolated island community faced with miraculous events and troubling omens following the arrival of a charismatic young priest. Filming will begin this year.
If the name Midnight Mass is ringing some bells, it should. Flanagan confirmed on Twitter that it’s based on “the very same” book that was written by Maddie Young in 2016’s Hush. The book also appeared in 2017’s Gerald’s Game, on the shelf above the bed that Jessie Burlingame was chained to. Is this the start of the Mike Flanagan cinematic universe? We sure hope so!
