Riding high from the success of Midnight Mass, Mike Flanagan and team are setting up their new venture with streaming giant Netflix.  The new limited series The Fall of the House of Usher will be a series based on various works by Edgar Allan Poe.

The exact details of what we can expect from the series are being kept quiet for now.  We do know that Netflix has ordered 8 episodes of the new Mike Flanagan production.

Flanagan created the series and serves as an executive producer alongside Trevor Macy under their Intrepid Pictures banner. Flanagan will also direct four episodes of the series. Emmy Grinwis and Michael Fimognari will also executive produce, with Fimognari also directing four episodes. Intrepid Pictures’ Melinda Nishioka will co-executive produce.  – Variety.com

This could be yet another hit in a line of successful series Flanagan and Intrepid Pictures have brought to Netflix.  Previous fan favorites include The Haunting of Hill House, The Haunting of Bly Manor, and the recently released Midnight Mass.
Variety exclusively reported that Intrepid is also prepping a series adaptation of The Midnight Club novel as a Netflix series. Per an individual with knowledge of the project, The Fall of the House of Usher will be a standalone series and will not have any connection to the previous Intrepid series. – Variety.com
