The finale of “Goosebumps at Midnight” will leave many viewers with a question mark over their heads. That alone isn’t really a problem if it hadn’t been the norm in the past for Mike Flanagan’s Netflix series to be one-season. In the case of “The Midnight Club” (the original title of the series), however, there are too many unanswered questions for the format to really be complete in one season.
In conversation with TVLine Mike Flanagan has now commented on this and made it clear that a second season is actually planned. All fans have to do is stream the series and keep their fingers crossed:
“We probably won’t know what Netflix wants for the next few months either, but the format was very poised to move forward. Pike has over 80 books, so we have a lot of incredible material to draw from. We still haven’t answered some of the biggest questions of the season. These answers exist, but were intended for the next few seasons. If there aren’t any, I’ll post the answers on Twitter so we can all at least talk about it there.”
That means in plain language: In theory, if Midnight Goosebumps is successful enough, there’s nothing standing in the way of a second season. Mike Flanagan is one of Netflix’s most prestigious artists. In the top 10 series trends on Netflix, “Goosebumps at Midnight” has made itself comfortable since its appearance – even if it never made it to the top position due to the sensational success of “Dahmer – Monster”. The signs are basically quite good.
If there isn’t a second season of “Midnight Goosebumps,” new content from Mike Flanagan is still coming to Netflix soon. His new series, The Fall Of The House Of Usher, is already in post-production. Here one can assume that the format, which is based on templates by Edgar Allen Poe, will appear next year – probably around Halloween again. Flanagan recently explained what awaits us here:
