The series will be based on the eponymous book written by Christopher Pike, released in 1994, and will also incorporate other works by the author.
The plot takes place in Rotterdam Home, a hospice for mentally handicapped adolescents. A group of patients begins to gather at midnight to tell horror stories. So they make a pact that the person in the group who dies first contacts others from the Hereafter.
The protagonists, who will form the Midnight Club, are: Adia, Igby Rigney, Ruth Codd, William Chris Sumpter, Aya Furukawa, Annarah Shephard and Sauriyan Sapkota.
The cast will also include Heather Langenkamp (“The Nightmare Hour”), Zach Gilford, Samantha Sloyan, William B. Davis, Iman Benson, Larsen Thompson, Crystal Balint, Patricia Drake and Matt Biedel.
Flanagan joins as a producer and screenwriter alongside Leah Fong (‘Once Upon a Time’).
