Kate Siegel and Zach Gilford to star in Netflix’s Midnight Mass
Staff Reporter | On 06, Feb 2020
The Haunting of Hill House star Kate Siegel is reuniting with director Mike Flanagan for new horror series Midnight Mass.
The series, announced last summer, explores an isolated island community that experiences miraculous events – and frightening omens – after the arrival of a charismatic, mysterious young priest.
The project stems from Flanagan’s multi-year TV deal inked between Netflix and Flanagan’s Intrepid Pictures production banner. While the project marks a continuation of Netflix’s relationship with the Hush and Hill House director – The Haunting of Bly Manor, a follow-up, is already in the works – it also sees Siegel continue to work with Flanagan, who is her husband, after starring in his Gerald’s Game, Oculus, Hill House and Hush, the latter of which she co-wrote.
She will be joined on screen by Zach Gilford (The Purge: Anarchy) and Hamish Linklater (Legion), as well as Annabeth Gish (The Haunting of Hill House), Michael Trucco (Hunter Killer), Samantha Sloyan (Grey’s Anatomy), Henry Thomas (The Haunting of Hill House),Rahul Abburi (Killer Ransom), Crystal Balint (The Bletchley Circle: San Francisco), Matt Biedel (Altered Carbon), Alex Essoe (Doctor Sleep), Rahul Kohli (Supergirl), Kristin Lehman (The Chronicles of Riddick), Robert Longstreet (Doctor Sleep), Igby Rigney (Blue Bloods) and Annarah Shephard.
Netflix has commissioned seven episodes from producers Flanagan and Trevor Macy, who have worked together under their Intrepid banner on Hill House, Before I Wake and Doctor Sleep.
Production on Midnight Mss will begin this spring in Vancouver.

Flanagan is already at work on his next Netflix project, though, under the multi-year television deal between the streamer and Trevor Macy and Flanagan’s Intrepid Pictures.
