Filming has begun on Midnight Mass, Netflix’s latest horror series from director Mike Flanagan (The Haunting of Hill House, Doctor Sleep).
Flanagan, who is directing every episode of the seven-episode series, announced the news on Twitter, writing “Day 1… here we go.” The series follows an isolated island community experiencing miraculous events and frightening omens following the arrival of a charismatic but mysterious young priest.
If the name Midnight Mass is ringing a bell, you might remember it as the book written by Maddie Young in Flanagan’s 2016 movie Hush. This book also appeared in another of the director’s films, 2017’s Gerald’s Game.
Katie Siegel (The Haunting of Hill House), Zach Gilford (The Purge: Anarchy), and Hamish Linklater (Legion) will star in the series. The cast also includes Annabeth Gish (Before I Wake), Crystal Balint (Shut In), Alex Essoe (Starry Eyes), Rahul Abburi (Kidnapped by a Classmate), Matt Biedel (Phoenix Forgotten), Rahul Kohli (iZombie), Kristin Lehman (Altered Carbon), Robert Longstreet (Doctor Sleep), Igby Rigney (Blue Bloods), Henry Thomas (The Haunting of Hill House), Michael Trucco (Hunter Killer), Samantha Sloyan (Hush), and Annarah Shephard.
