Another teen horror mystery is coming to Netflix this fall, taking scary stories to a whole new level. During Netflix’s Geeked Week on June 6, the streamer released the first look at its previously announced series The Midnight Club, a television adaptation of Christopher Pike’s 1994 young adult novel of the same name. On September 20, Netflix released the spooky trailer for the series with a ’90s soundtrack that fits the setting.
In it, a college girl played by Iman Benson discovers that she has terminal cancer. She is sent to Brightcliffe, a hospice with the aesthetics of a teenage boarding school. She learns that most of her other residents have been there for a few months. Eventually she wants to explore the basement. She finds out that the other residents have a club where they go to the library and tell ghost stories. They call it the Midnight Club. The teenagers are desperate to live, but also desperate to uncover the mysteries of the house and life on the other side. Whatever happens, it promises to be a terrifying ride.
The upcoming series comes from The Haunting of Hill House creators Mike Flanagan and Leah Fong. This is Flanagan’s fourth collaboration with Netflix, following other shows like The Haunting of Bly Manor and Midnight Mass.
