NETFLIX’S Haunting of Hill House creator has shared a cheeky behind the scenes snap of new horror series Midnight Mass, as filming for the show finally kicks off.
Posting a picture of the clapperboard, director Mike Flanagan captioned the snap: “Day 1… here we go.”
News that Midnight Mass had been given the green light was announced last July, with reports that seven episodes had been ordered.
The series will reportedly be set on an isolated island community that starts to experience sinister and terrifying events after a strange young priest arrives.
Although character names haven’t been revealed yet, actor Kate Siegel who starred in The Haunting of Hill House has already been confirmed to appear in the seven part series.
She will be joined by her previous co-stars from the breakout horror series, Annabeth Gish and Henry Thomas.
Netflix signed a multi-year TV deal with Mike Flanagan and Trevor Macy and their Intrepid Pictures last year, and Midnight Mass will be the latest installment of that partnership.
The streaming platform has also ordered a second installment of The Haunting of Hill House – The Haunting of Bly Manor – following the breakout success of the original series.
Horror fans loved the spooky series, based on the novel of the same name by Shirley Jackson, which followed the five Crain siblings.
The family’s paranormal experiences at Hill House continued to haunt them in the present day causing horrific and creepy encounters.
Flashbacks to the night the family fled the mansion, twists and side stories kept the momentum going until the final terrifying ending.
The second chapter of the horror franchise has kept some of the cast from the original run – including Victoria Pedretti, who played tragic Nell Crain, and Oliver Jackson Cohen, who played her brother Luke.
The Haunting of Hill House is available to stream only on Netflix.
