On Monday, February 1, 2021, Netflix tweeted a clever photo announcing the cast for the Midnight Club series. It features the actors’ names on the spines of books on a shelf. Flanagan also took to Twitter to announce the cast for the show, but with a bit more detail. We now know that the cast of the titular Midnight Club within the show will feature Adia, Igby Rigney (Midnight Mass), TikTok star Ruth Codd, Broadway’s William Chris Sumpter, Aya Furukawa (The Cabin in the Woods), Annarah Shephard (Midnight Mass), and Sauriyan Sapkota.
Joining them are a few more familiar faces from Flanagan’s previous projects. Samantha Sloyan, who appeared as Leigh in The Haunting of Hill House, as well as Zach Gilford and Matt Biedel, who both appear in Flanagan’s upcoming Netflix series Midnight Mass, have joined the series in supporting roles.
But that isn’t the most exciting piece of casting news: The series will feature bonafide horror royalty in the form of A Nightmare on Elm Street‘s Heather Langenkamp, who portrayed Nancy Thompson in the acclaimed film. In The Midnight Club, she will bring to life the doctor who runs the hospice center where the young adults live.
The show, which currently doesn’t have a premiere date, is produced by Flanagan and Trevor Macy’s Intrepid Pictures. Flanagan hinted that “some other familiar faces from previous Intrepid projects” will appear as guest stars along the way.
