while talking with EmpireFlanagan revealed how the midnight club will be compared to Midnight mass. While the new series will have a much younger audience in mind, if anything, it will be more committed to delivering Flanagan-esque scares. A common complaint about Midnight mass was that the series had a tendency to feature characters delivering monologues for long periods of time, and Flanagan assures fans that, in addition to focusing more on scaring, “I wouldn’t subject a viewer of The Midnight Club to an eight-minute monologue..” Read his full quote below:

One of the big things we assumed was that younger viewers would be able to handle scares. I wouldn’t subject a viewer of The Midnight Club to an eight-minute monologue.

Flanagan later responded to the original headline of this article, who believed that the Midnight mass complaint like “Important.” His tweet prompted an additional response from Kohli, who played Sheriff Hassan in the Netflix miniseries. Both comments can be seen below; the original article follows.

Those who were impatient with the pace of Midnight mass You will certainly be relieved by this development. It’s somewhat ironic that this is the case, considering the entire series is literally about people telling each other stories. However, considering the fact that this seems to be a setting for an anthology to the 90’s series Are you afraid of the dark?it makes sense that the show would prioritize dramatizing the stories on screen rather than getting up close and personal with the faces of the people telling them.

Although Flanagan has assumed that viewers of the midnight club He may not have the patience for long monologues, it certainly looks like the series will be just as terrifying as his previous works. In the meantime Midnight mass Y bly mansion were more thoughtful horror projects with less focus on blood-curdling screams, it’s certainly shown its shaking skills elsewhere. His guarantee that the series will return to form means it could be the scariest thing Netflix releases this year.
