Mark Hamill Among 15 Actors Added To Bly Manor Director Mike Flanagan's The Fall Of The House Of Usher

The Fall Of The House Of Usher will span eight episodes on Netflix.


Netflix has announced what could potentially be the full cast for director Mike Flanagan's (Doctor Sleep, Haunting of Bly Manor) upcoming limited series The Fall of the House of Usher, which is based on multiple works from Edgar Allan Poe. The project was first announced in October.

The streaming service has revealed that in addition to actors Frank Langella, Carla Gugino, Mary McDonnell, Mark Hamill, and Carl Lumbly, the series will also feature Henry Thomas, Samantha Sloyan, T'Nia Mille, Rahul Kohli, Kate Siegel, Sauriyan Sapkota, Crystal Balint, Kyleigh Curran, Matt Biedel, Ruth Codd, Zach Gilford, Michael Trucco, Malcolm Goodwin, Robert Longstreet, and Paola Nunez.

Originally published in 1839, the Poe short story Flanagan is turning his attention towards next (which you can read for free online right here at The Poe Museum) is a work of Gothic fiction that explores many themes typical of the writer--if themes of madness, family, isolation, and identity crisis are your thing, there will be a lot to love here. The limited series will span eight episodes, with Flanagan and frequent collaborator Michael Fimognari each directing four episodes.

Netflix has not yet revealed a release or production start date.
