New The Midnight Club Clip Brings The Jump Scares

The ten-episode series premieres on Netflix on October 7.


Netflix has shared a new jump scare-laden clip on Twitter for The Midnight Club from Mike Flanagan. The 10-episode series premieres on Netflix on October 7.

A synopsis is as follows: "At a hospice with a mysterious history, the eight members of the Midnight Club meet each night at midnight to tell sinister stories--and to look for signs of the supernatural from the beyond." Based on previously and recently released photos, and a trailer from earlier this summer, the show is likely set in the 1980s--so will be perfect for Stranger Things fans who are still in withdrawal after the long wait and quick binging of Season 4. The Midnight Club, though, definitely has a darker edge--in the new clip you can check out below, you'll get to experience one example of the supernatural threats the kids will encounter.

Featuring a younger cast than we're used to from co-creator Mike Flanagan (The Haunting of Hill House, Haunting of Bly Manor), the series stars Igby Rigney (Blue Bloods), William Chris Sumpter (Power), Aya Furukawa (The Cabin in the Woods), Adia (Danger Love Story), Annarah Cymone (Caged), Sauriyan Sapkota (Grey's Anatomy), and Matt Biedel (Narcos: Mexico). Heather Langenkamp, who starred in the original Nightmare on Elm Street, will play the "enigmatic doctor" who runs the home.

Haunting alumni and Midnight Mass alumni Rahul Kohli (The Haunting of Bly Manor), Zach Gilford (Friday Night Lights), and Samantha Sloyan (The Haunting of Hill House) will have small roles in the series.
