Mike Flanagan returns to Netflix with his new project titled The Midnight Club, but this time he teamed up with a different person, Leah Fong. The mystery horror series kicks off on Friday October 7th and everyone is gearing up for its release.
The Midnight Club is a Netflix Original about a group of terminally ill patients living in a hospice run by a mysterious doctor. Every night at midnight, the patients meet to tell each other spooky stories. One night they decide to make a pact that the first person to die has the responsibility of contacting the others from beyond the grave to confirm that there is life after death. But then one dies and strange events begin.
The talented ensemble cast includes Iman Benson, Adia, Igby Rigney, Ruth Codd, Aya Furukawa, Annarah Shephard, William Chris Sumpter, Sauriyan Sapkota, Heather Langenkamp and many others.
So is The Midnight Club a television adaptation? Is it based on a book or is it a completely standalone work? Read on to find out!
Is The Midnight Club based on a book?
Like many Netflix shows, the mystery thriller series is based on a novel. It is a television adaptation of the 1994 book of the same name by bestselling author Christopher Pike. The show also draws from a number of Pike’s previous work. You can purchase the book in paperback or as an e-book from Amazon.
This isn’t Pike’s first work to be adapted. His 1990 mystery book Fall into the darkness was adapted into a TV movie of the same name in 1996. Also his children’s book series Spookville was adapted into a TV show on the Hub Network (Discovery Family) in 2013.
His latest work to be adapted is The Midnight Club. The next Pike’s book we’ll see adapted is The transition period. Flanagan is set to direct a film adaptation of the sci-fi novel for Universal.
