The Midnight Club Production
The show is produced by executive producers Mike Flanagan, Leah Fong, Trevor Macy, Julia Bicknell and Christopher Pike.
The Midnight Club is based on the 1994 novel. A group of terminally ill people meet at midnight and tell each other horror stories. They have a pact saying the first person that dies will communicate with those beyond. So we will probably see them tell each other stories similar to those written in the novel. But it’s up to Flanagan how he plans on adapting from the novel. We know that the show will also focus on what happens after one group member dies. This is because that’s when the fun stuff starts happening.
Remember that pact they had? Well, after one of them succumbs, many bizarre occurrences begin to unfold. The group now has these to deal with too. Flanagan likes to write stories covering multiple periods, so expect there to be a vast amount of time covered in this series.
