The first trailer for Midnight Mass has been released. The new horror show from Haunting of Bly Manor and Doctor Sleep director Mike Flanagan hits Netflix on September 24.

Midnight Mass is set in an isolated island community, known as Crockett Island, to which a disgraced local played by Friday Night Lights star Zach Gilford returns. When a mysterious priest named Father Paul also arrives, strange supernatural phenomena start to happen, further disrupting the community. The trailer doesn't give much more away than that, but it looks likes an eerie and atmospheric show that will hopefully deliver the same mix of drama and horror that made Bly Manor and its predecessor, The Haunting of Hill House, so effective. Check it below:

The show also stars Kate Siegel (Bly Manor), Hamish Linklater (The New Adventures of Old Christine), Annabeth Gish (Halt and Catch Fire), Michael Trucco (The Bye Bye Man), Samantha Sloyan (Hush), and Henry Thomas (Hill House). It's a seven-episode series.

Flanagan has also released a statement about Midnight Mass. It reads, "I'm just going to admit it… Midnight Mass is my favorite project so far. As a former altar boy, about to celebrate 3 years of sobriety, it's not had to see what makes this so personal. The ideas at the root of this show scare me to my core.

"There is darkness at work on Crockett Island. Some of it is supernatural, but the scariest is born of human nature. The darkness that animates this story isn't hard to see in our own world, unfortunately. But this show is about something else as well... faith itself. One of the great mysteries of human nature. How even in the darkness, in the worst of it, in the absence of light--and hope--we sing. I hope you enjoy our song."

Flanagan is also producing a new anthology series for Netflix titled The Midnight Club, based on Christopher Pike's 1994 novel of the same title. The show is set in a hospice for terminally ill young adults and will focus on a group of patients who form a club to tell each other spooky stories at night. The Midnight Club doesn't have a confirmed release date yet.
