What is The Midnight Club season 2 release date? The first season of fantasy series The Midnight Club may have only just dropped, but with the Netflix series already making a stark impression — it broke the Guinness World Record for most jumpscares in a singular episode in its season finale — some people are already thinking ahead to a second season.

Season 1 of The Midnight Club, which is based on the 1994 book of the same name, focuses on a group of eight terminally-ill teenagers at Brightcliffe Hospice who, at the titular Midnight Club, meet up every night to tell each other scary stories. Shortly after making a pact that the first of them to die will communicate with the others beyond the grave, a death occurs, and then unusual supernatural events start to happen at the hospice.

Mike Flanagan and Leah Fong are the creators and showrunners of the horror series, which also sees the return of horror movie veterans like Heather Langenkamp, who plays the enigmatic doctor running the hospice. With 27 books related to The Midnight Club, there’s definitely scope for a second season, so here’s our The Midnight Club season 2 speculation.

Unfortunately The Midnight Club season 2 isn’t happening, because the show was cancelled by Netflix in December 2022. This is disappointing, as there were plans to keep the series going indefinitely.

“This [series] was designed to be ongoing,” co-creator Mike Flanagan said in a press conference attended by Teen Vogue. I don’t know if it will. We’ll see how it goes […] but this was very much designed to continue. Pike has 80 books, so we have a lot of incredible material to pull from.”

Now, that won’t get to happen with Flanagan’s show being cancelled.

You can stream all episodes of season 1 of The Midnight Club on the streaming service Netflix now. For more small screen scares, check out our guide to the Stranger Things season 5 release date.
