The Midnight Club, unlike other Intrepid Pictures programs like Midnight Mass and The Haunting of Hill House, is relatively open-ended, suggesting a second season may be on the way. Mike Flanagan and Leah Fong’s vision for The Midnight Club is exactly that, and they have a plan in place for taking the program in that direction should Netflix want to renew the series.
Perri Nemiroff of Collider recently had an exclusive conversation with The Midnight Club creators Mike Flanagan and BD Fong, as well as Intrepid Pictures’ Trevor Macy, to discuss Season 2 of the show and how it will deal with its ensemble of terminal characters.
Flanagan & Macy’s The Midnight Club is the fourth series produced in conjunction with Netflix and Intrepid Pictures. Though its predecessors were meant to be read in one sitting, The Midnight Club is structured to be enjoyed over a longer period of time.
This suggests that The Midnight Club may return for not just Season 2, but for additional seasons to come. Flanagan responded to a question on how the shift to digital media has affected his work by saying:
The Midnight Club Season 2 Plot
The Paragon was an organization that practiced new-age health philosophy but later evolved into a cult. They offered sacrifices of blood because they believed that the ancient Greek goddesses known as the five sisters gave them the power to cure those who were ill through their worship of them.
An enormous secret has been revealed, and it is that Georgina is connected in any way to the organization. We can’t wait to see what the big reveal is in the possible second season. She was a member of team Paragon for the majority of the show, but she switched sides after learning the truth about Shasta’s motivations.
Will she try her luck one more time in her vain attempt to stay alive? We have high hopes that we will be able to discover whether or not the shadow that skulks down the corridors and the bloodcurdling old lady with milky eyes are in fact actual beings who intend to cause them harm.
The Midnight Club Season 2 Cast
Given that the show has already said goodbye to tough-as-nails Anya, it’s quite doubtful that Ruth Codd will return to the part in a later season.
It’s possible, but not likely, that she’ll show up again in a flashback or, gasp, as a ghost. It would be out of place for her to return now that her story arc has concluded with the fixing of her ballerina statue (it was a thing, trust us).
The tragic truth of a show about terminally ill children is that anyone, on or off screen, could die at any time. However, we are looking forward to the return of Benson and Igby Rigney as Ilonka’s last-minute beau Kevin.
The two had the entire season to finally be together, but they waited until the very end. It’s a heinous act toward the faithful who have been shipping them since the beginning.
Dr. Georgina Stanton, played by Heather Langenkamp, needs to make a return appearance. The doctor, along with his hourglass tattoo, is hiding a lot of information from the public under his wig. What is her true identity, and how is she connected to the Paragon? So many questions (details to follow)!
Moreover, we’re keeping our fingers crossed that these poets and raconteurs will join us at the next Midnight Club party:
To name a few: Annarah Cymone as Sandra, William Chris Sumpter as Chris Spencer, Adia as Cheri, Aya Furukawa as Natsuki, and Sauriyan Sapkota as Amesh. Playing the role of Shasta is Samantha Sloyan, and Mark is played by Zach Gilford.
The Midnight Club Season 2 Release Date
We’re only kidding; no need to frighten us with prophecies from beyond the grave. Unfortunately, the fates have decided to make us wait for season two updates.
But there is still cause for optimism. The creators appear to be as hungry as we are for more terrifying tales.
Flanagan told Teen Vogue and other reporters, “This was intended to be continuous.”
I really don’t think so. We’ll have to wait and watch how things develop; Netflix’s plans are unclear at this time. Nonetheless, this was planned to go on.
He continued, “Pike has 80 volumes, so we have a lot of wonderful material to pull from,” referencing Christopher Pike’s novels from which the show is adapted.
For the next season, Flanagan isn’t the only one with ambitious plans.
I won’t spoil it, but executive producer Trevor Macy has remarked, “There are a couple ideas for season two.”
It appears that the content is prepared and waiting; all that is required is approval from Netflix. Obviously, we’ll let you know as soon as it arrives.
The Midnight Club Season 2 Trailer
Given that the first season has only just arrived, we don’t expect any news for some time. However, stay tuned because we’ll provide an update as soon as it’s available.
Netflix subscribers may now watch The Midnight Club instantly.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Did the Midnight Club End?
What happened to Julia between the time she disappeared from Brightcliffe and returned cured is revealed in the series finale. To get some relief from her disease, Julia sought out Paragon’s founder, Regina Ballard (Katie Parker), also known as Aceso (after the Greek goddess of healing).
Is There a Season 2 Midnight Club?
Flanagan has a plan for multiple seasons of “Midnight Club,” which follows the teens as they live out the end of their short lives at the hospice and share scary stories to help them cope with the inevitable, despite the presence of supernatural forces. While Netflix has not yet renewed the series for a second season.
What is Midnight Club Based on?
Yes! The Midnight Club is an adaptation of Christopher Pike’s novel of the same name written for young adults. Each member of The Midnight Club shares a tale from one of Pike’s other works, such as The Wicked Heart, Gimme a Kiss, See You Later, Witch, Road to Nowhere, or The Eternal Enemy.
The Midnight Club, created by Mike Flanagan and Leah Fong, may be picked up for a second season. The show’s format encourages viewing over several sittings. Anya has already left, and it’s unlikely that Ruth Codd will come back for another season.
We always planned for “The Midnight Club” to keep going. The second season will have “wonderful material to pull from” according to executive producer Trevor Macy, who praises Christopher Pike’s novels. We’d love to see Ilonka’s exes, played by Heather Langenkamp, Benson Rigney, and Igby Rigney, back for season two.
