This article will tell you everything you need to know about The Midnight Club, Flanagan’s next big Netflix movie. The Midnight Club is the name of his most recent scary book. This Netflix show is based on a book by Christopher Pike by the same name. Flanagan and Leah Fong made it. So, shall we get started?
When is the Release Date of the Midnight Club?
According to collider, The first episode of The Midnight Club will air on October 7, 2022. On that date, Netflix will add all 10 episodes so that people can watch the whole season at their own pace.
What is the Midnight Club About?
Are You Afraid of the Dark?, a Nickelodeon show from the 1990s, had a group of kids called “The Midnight Society?” The Midnight Club is a lot like that show. But The Midnight Club is about something much darker.
A group of young adults who are dying live together in a hospice home. Their doctor takes care of them there. Every midnight, they get together and take turns telling scary stories. They also promise each other that whoever dies first will try to contact the group from beyond the grave. When one dies, strange things happen that no one can explain.

According to Novel, We Have Plot Speculation
From the author of The Wicked Heart and The Immortal comes a beautiful and haunting book about five teens with terminal illnesses whose midnight stories come true.
Rotherham Home was a hospice for young people. Teenagers with serious illnesses who were nearing the end of their lives went there to die—no one who ever checked in left. It was a sad and painful place but also a funny and exciting place.
A group of young boys and girls at the hospice got together every night at 12 to tell stories. They called themselves the Midnight Club; their stories could be true or false, inspiring or sad, or something in between.
One night, while listening to a scary story, the teens make a secret deal: “The first one to die will do whatever he or she can to get in touch with us from beyond the grave and show us that there is life after death.”
