Netflix Unveils First Trailer for New Horror Series From 'The Haunting of Hill House' Creator

Netflix has released the first trailer for Midnight Mass, an upcoming, seven-episode limited horror series from the creator of The Haunting of Hill House and The Haunting of Bly Manor, Mike Flanagan.

The series takes place on Crockett Island, an isolated island community where existing tensions are heightened after a disgraced man (Zach Gilford) and a charming priest (Hamish Linklater) arrive on the scene. Following Father Paul’s appearance on the island, a series of seemingly miraculous events occur; however, it quickly becomes evident that those unexplained marvels come at a price.

Flanagan introduced the series in a letter, writing, “As a former altar boy, about to celebrate 3 years of sobriety, it’s hard not 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 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,” he continued.

“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’s wife and frequent collaborator Kate Siegel co-stars in the series alongside Rahul Abburi, Crystal Balint, Matt Biedel, Alex Essoe, Annarah Cymone, Annabeth Gish, Rahul Kohli, Kristin Lehman, Robert Longstreet, Igby Rigney, Samantha Sloyan, Henry Thomas and Michael Trucco. The series is executive produced by Flanagan and Trevor Macy.

Midnight Mass will premiere on Netflix on September 24. Ahead of the release, watch the trailer above.
