Sorry, ghouls and trolls, Horror fanatics won’t get another installment of The Haunting series on Netflix this Spooktober. However, The Haunting of Hill House creator Mike Flanagan does have a creepy new series now streaming on Netflix. His show Midnight Mass has only seven episodes, so you can finish it in a day.

And guess what? The American filmmaker is telling even more horrific tales soon. As per Deadline.com, has scored a series order for limited drama The Fall of the House of Usher. 

Based on various works of the legendary Edgar Allan Poe, the original story was published in 1839. Poe’s classic supernatural horror story revolves around an unidentified narrator and his friend who claims that their mansion is sentient and is responsible for his deteriorating mental condition.

Other details of the upcoming project have yet to be announced. However, Flanagan has already signed on as the writer and executive producer of the show. Plus, he will share the director duties with Hill House‘s Michael Fimognari, whose previous works include Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep and Ouija: Origin of Evil, to name a few.

Flanagan has posted about the project on his Twitter account, saying, “I’m so excited about this series… it is like nothing else we’ve ever done. More to come very soon!”

Here’s more treat for his fans: this isn’t his only project in the works with Netflix. Aside from adapting Poe’s short story, the acclaimed director is also working on a Netflix series adaptation of Christopher Pike’s 1994 young adult book The Midnight Club, which tells the story of five terminally ill teenagers at a hospice who meet every night to tell each other scary stories.

So while we may not get another The Haunting story sometime soon, Flanagan has a lot of exciting scary projects in the works.
