Filming for Mike Flanagan’s (The Haunting of Hill House; The Haunting of Bly Manor) latest Netflix project The Fall of the House of Usher has officially begun in Vancouver, Canada.
The Midnight Mass creator confirmed that filming and production is now underway for the horror-drama on his Twitter earlier today after frequent collaborator – and wife – Kate Siegel arrived on set for a fitting last week.
The Fall of the House of Usher is an upcoming limited series based on a number of classic Edgar Allen Poe stories, including its namesake, and is set to consist of 8 episodes – Flanagan and cinematographer, Michael Fimognari, will spilt directing duties with 4 episodes each.
Featuring an ensemble cast, Flanagan reunites with several former cast members from his previous productions including: Siegel (Hush, The Haunting of Hill House, Midnight Mass), Carla Gugino (Gerald’s Game, The Haunting of Hill House, The Haunting of Bly Manor), Rahul Kohli (The Haunting of Bly Manor, Midnight Mass), Samantha Sloyan (Hush, The Haunting of Hill House, Midnight Mass).
T’Nia Miller, Henry Thomas, Zach Gilford, Michael Trucco, Matt Biedel, Igby Rigney, Annabeth Gish, and Robert Longstreet will also return to collaborate with Flanagan whilst newcomers: Frank Langella, Mark Hamill and Mary McDonnell, make their introduction to the ‘Flanaverse.’
The Fall of the House of Usher marks the fifth series for Flanagan and Intrepid Pictures’ multi-year deal with Netflix – established in 2019 – in which the horror auteur and Trevor Macy are contracted to develop exclusive TV content for the streaming site. Titles under the deal include: The Haunting anthology (2018 – 2020), Midnight Mass (2021), and upcoming The Midnight Club (2022).
Filming is expected to take place over a course of four months, ending on May 25, 2022. No release date has been scheduled as of yet, however fans can look forward to catching Flanagan’s next project The Midnight Club sometime this year to quench their ‘Flanaverse’ thirst.
