Last month, Netflix released the teaser trailer for director Mike Flanagan’s seven episode mini-series Midnight Mass, which is scheduled to be released globally through the Netflix streaming service on September 24th. With just two weeks to go before the show will be available to watch, the full trailer has now arrived online and can be seen in the embed above.
Midnight Mass tells the tale of
a small, isolated island community whose existing divisions are amplified by the return of a disgraced young man (Zach Gilford) and the arrival of a charismatic priest (Hamish Linklater). When Father Paul’s appearance on Crockett Island coincides with unexplained and seemingly miraculous events, a renewed religious fervor takes hold of the community – but do these miracles come at a price?
Gilford and Linklater are joined in the cast by Kate Siegel, Henry Thomas, Annabeth Gish, Robert Longstreet, Alex Essoe, Michael Trucco, Samantha Sloyan, Rahul Abburi, Crystal Balint, Matt Biedel, Rahul Kohli, Kristin Lehman, Igby Rigney, and Annarah Cymone.
Essoe has said that “in a nutshell”, the show is like
Salem’s Lot meets The Perfect Storm. A sleepy little island community of staunch Catholics, and their belief is their undoing. I’ll put it that way. I won’t say anything about what character I’m playing because it’s such a great surprise. I can’t really go on about that one…If I do it right, you won’t know it’s me.”
Flanagan executive produced the series with Trevor Macy. Flanagan previously worked with Netflix on The Haunting of Hill House, The Haunting of Bly Manor, and Gerald’s Game.
Midnight Mass looks great to me, and I’m already on board to watch anything Flanagan makes regardless. I will definitely be checking out this show as soon as possible.
