The Horror Mystery Series ‘The Midnight Club’ Season 2 Got Cancelled By Netflix

Published

on

Netflix has cancelled The Midnight Club, the first season of which premiered on October 7th. This is a big loss for horror fans as this was one of the best pieces of horror on TV and there are only a handful that can be considered innovative. The show’s cancellation was confirmed by Flanagan himself who tweeted, “Midnight Club season 2 got cancelled. Thank you to everyone who watched and supported the show. It is also important to note that Flanagan and writer Jeff Howard did an amazing job keeping the show, which was based on the Pike novel of the same name, more faithful than the 2002 film adaptation from Warner Brothers Pictures. The first season followed all eleven books in the series with several recurring characters showing up over all ten episodes. The Midnight Club isn’t the only great horror series from Netflix. In fact, there are several that deserve your attention as well.

What is the series about? 

The Midnight Club is a horror mystery series from Netflix and Blumhouse Television. The series was created by Mike Flanagan and Leah Fong and based on the book series written by Christopher Pike. It follows eight terminally ill patients who meet at a hospice at midnight every day to tell each other scary stories. They do this in order to fulfil a promise made to the first of them to die, so that he can contact them after his death.  The Midnight Club is one of the best horror TV show releases in a long time. Its intelligent storytelling, great cast and interesting characters made it one of the most enjoyable shows to watch over the last few weeks. 

Why ‘The Midnight Club’ Got Cancelled? 

The Midnight Club is the first of Netflix’s horror anthologies to get cancelled. There are no specific reasons given for the cancellation of The Midnight Club. However, there are several reasons that suggest why Netflix might have decided to cancel it.  According to Cinema Blend, one of the main issues that could have led to the cancellation is that it didn’t have high ratings or much buzz for many people who watched its first season. Flanagan has openly admitted this as well, telling Entertainment Weekly, “I think people were really surprised by how good the show was” and that they were pretty surprised by how well-received it was.

What makes the series exciting? 

The Midnight Club is a great show for horror fans and those who enjoy thoughtful stories. It is a very different kind of horror series. Although it does have several scary moments, almost all of the ten are more suspenseful than outright scary. The show has an excellent cast and some great storytelling, in particular by Stefanie Estes who plays Lucy Franklyn. Mike Flanagan directed several episodes and did an excellent job with them all. If you like horror and shows with a lot of thought behind them then The Midnight Club is definitely worth watching.
