Mike Flanagan is back at it again and now Kate Seigel, a long-time collaborator of Flanagan, has just shared a set photo to celebrate the beginning of production of Flanagan’s new Netflix horror series The Fall of the House of Usher. The highly anticipated horror miniseries are based on multiple works of Edgar Allan Poe, making this series the fifth collaboration of Netflix and Flanagan.
The set photo shared by Siegel sees her wearing a mask, and she is pointing to the laminated logo of the series with the name of her co-star Rahul Kohli, the sign seems to be located on a dressing room or trailer. Siegel and Kohli have collaborated with Flanagan in the past frequently, and they recently starred in Flanagan’s hit Netflix horror series Midnight Mass. Siegel wrote in the post that “every new journey begins with a single step”, indicating the beginning of production of The Fall of the House of Usher.
The horror series was announced last year, and the title of the series comes from a short story, which was written by Poe, and while the name of the series is derived from only one short story the series will be based on multiple works of Poe. The Fall of the House of Usher is reportedly a miniseries, and will not expand its story into multiple seasons. The Fall of the House of Usher is not the first time Flanagan is making a series based on a novel, because his past work including The Haunting of Hill House was based on a novel of the same name written by Shirley Jackson, and The Haunting of Bly Manor was loosely based on The Turn of the Screw written by Henry James. Flanagan’s other upcoming series The Midnight Club is also based on a book of the same name written by Christopher Pike.
The Fall of the House of Usher will also star Frank Langella as Roderick Usher, Carla Gugino, Mary McDonnell as Madeline Usher, Carl Lumbly as C. Auguste Dupin, Mark Hamill, Henry Thomas, Samantha Sloyan, T’Nia Miller, Sauriyan Sapkota, Zach Gilford, Katie Parker, Michael Trucco, Malcolm Goodwin, Crystal Balint, Kyleigh Curran, Paola Nuñez, Aya Furukawa, Matt Biedel, Daniel Jun, Ruth Codd, Robert Longstreet, JayR Tinaco, Igby Rigney, and Annabeth Gish.
