We’re one step closer to the much anticipated Netflix series adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Fall of the House of Usher from The Haunting of Hill House and Bly Manor creator Mike Flanagan. Flanagan announced on Sunday via Twitter that filming for the series has officially wrapped. You can check out his tweet below:

It’s especially exciting to hear that Flanagan’s series has wrapped filming, since production paused in April. Former series lead Frank Langella was dropped from production after allegations of misconduct arose. Langella was quickly recast by actor Bruce Greenwood. It seems the series was able to still successfully move along despite this setback. Usher reunites the Hill House creator with frequent collaborators like Carla Gugino, Henry Thomas, Rahul Kholi, Kate Siegel, and Carl Lumbly.
The new series is based on the 1839 short story of the same name by American horror author Edgar Allan Poe. Flanagan’s series is set to be a modern iteration of the classic tale, with elements from other Poe stories incorporated within it. If the success of Flanagan’s previous Netflix series have told us anything, it’s that viewers are in for a mind-bending, horror-filled treat with The Fall of the House of Usher.
Though filming has wrapped, there is still no official release date for the series. Flanagan has another horror series, The Midnight Club, set to premiere on Netflix this October. So, it’s safe to assume we probably won’t be diving into The Fall of the House of Usher until 2023.
The Midnight Club is based on the popular YA book series by Christopher Pike. The series follows a group of terminally ill teenagers who regularly meet at midnight to tell scary stories. You can check out the show’s teaser trailer below:
