After nearly two years of silence following its 2020 debut, it was announced this year that Netflix had canceled its adult animated series The Midnight Gospel.

The surreal show brought comedian Duncan Trussell’s real-life podcast interviews to life with various guests, taking viewers on fantastical adventures.

However, when the streamer lost almost a million subscribers in three months, the high price of the genre forced it to cut back on the production of animated content. As a result, The Midnight Gospel was one of the unfortunate victims.

When I heard the devastating news that… The Haunting of Hill House Director and creator Mike Flanagan’s latest horror series, the midnight club, was scrapped after the first season, with Flanagan himself first to criticize the “disappointing” decision.

The 10-episode thriller is Flanagan’s fourth Netflix series and focuses on a group of terminally ill teenagers who start a club at their hospice center.

Each night, the eight members meet to share dark tales as they search for signs of the supernatural.
