According to WrapperNetflix decided to cancel The Midnight Club after the first season due to falling viewership. Ranked at number 3 a week after it premiered, the show fell sharply out of the Netflix top 10 after only four weeks on the streaming service. The news of the series being canceled is disappointing, especially given some of the unresolved plot points.
The good news is that creator Mike Flanagan will provide all the answers via social media sometime in the future, promising fans that he’ll answer season one’s burning questions on Twitter if the decision is made to give the show its own blood axe. This was good foresight on his part, as while he planned for The Midnight Club to continue, he was never sure if Netflix would greenlight another season (via Diversity).
There’s no official word yet on when Flanagan will talk about the planned seasons 2 and 3 of The Midnight Club, but he’s definitely busy. The cancellation of the series from Netflix was to be expected after the initial announcement that the streaming service was inferior to Amazon’s Flanagan. Flanagan and producer Trevor Macy have signed a multi-year deal with the company and will likely produce content through Intrepid Pictures for Amazon Prime.
