Netflix has brought online the new Midnight Mass trailer, which gives you a look at the series from the creators of The Haunting of Hill House and The Haunting of Bly Manor. You can watch the Midnight Mass trailer using the player below and you’ll find the new poster underneath.
Midnight Mass introduces Crockett Island, an isolated island community that experiences miraculous events – and frightening omens – following the arrival of a charismatic, mysterious young priest.
Launching on September 24, 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?
Consisting of seven episodes, Midnight Mass also stars Kate Siegel, Rahul Abburi, Crystal Balint, Matt Biedel, Alex Essoe, Annarah Cymone, Annabeth Gish, Rahul Kohli, Kristin Lehman, Robert Longstreet, Igby Rigney, Samantha Sloyan, Henry Thomas, and Michael Trucco.
Filming for the series started in Vancouver under strict safety protocols on August 17, 2020 and finished on December 15, 2020.
Flanagan previously talked about the production, which took place under special circumstances.
“I’m just going to admit it… Midnight Mass is my favorite project so far,” he said. “As a former altar boy, about to celebrate 3 years of sobriety, it’s not hard to see what makes this so personal. The ideas at the root of this show scare me to my core.”
“There is a darkness at work on Crockett Island,” Flanagan added. “Some of it is supernatural, but the scariest is born of human nature. The darkness that animates this story isn’t hard to see in our world, unfortunately.
“But this show is about something else as well… faith itself. One of the great mysteries of human nature. How even in the darkness, in the worst of it, in the absence of light — and hope — we sing. I hope you enjoy our song.
“This series has been a dream project of mine for many, many years. It is the most personal story I’ve ever told. I’ve been reluctant to direct a whole season again after Hill House, but I’m so glad I did in this case. I am so lucky to have worked with this cast and crew.”
