The eagerly anticipated Midnight Mass is now ready to watch on Netflix, telling the tale of how the return of disgraced man Riley Flynn (played by Zach Gilford), coincides with the arrival of the charming yet mysterious priest Father Paul (Hamish Linklater). The priest is able to conduct miracles, much to the residents of Crockett Island’s disbelief, reigniting their faith once again. But what is Father Paul really doing in the small community and what secrets has he got to hide?

Is Midnight Mass part of the Haunting series on Netflix?

The Haunting is an anthology series so far made up of The Haunting of Hill House and The Haunting of Bly Manor.

Each of the series is loosely based on classic horror tales with Hill House’s plot coming from the book of the same name by Shirley Jackson and series two putting a spin on Henry James’ The Turn of the Screw.

The seasons star a similar cast with actors Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Henry Thomas, Carla Gugino, Kate Siegel, and Victoria Pedretti starring in both.

The return of some of these familiar faces in Midnight Mass has led some to believe the latest horror is part of the Haunting franchise.

Siegel, Thomas, Rahul Kohli, Alex Essoe, Annabeth Gish, Robert Longstreet and Samantha Sloyan are all Haunting stars and are now in Midnight Mass.

The fact that so many of the horror anthology actors star does indicate there is a link between the shows.

More to the point, Midnight Mass comes from the same creator Mike Flanagan.

However, despite there being some similarities, this new horrific horror is not part of the Haunting series.

Midnight Mass is a standalone project, labelled as a limited series, that simply comes from the same mind as Hill House and Bly Manor.

If the religious-themed show was the third season of the anthology, then it would have “Haunting” in the title.

Flanagan also may have had a preference for hiring some of these actors because they worked so closely together on the other shows.

Nevertheless, Midnight Mass is a separate series and fans delving into the drama shouldn’t expect any other connections with the popular franchise.

At the end of last year, Flanagan disappointed fans by stating that there were no more Haunting series in the works.

While it hasn’t been officially cancelled, the team are not working on another story.

Taking to Twitter, Flanagan wrote: “At the moment there are no plans for more chapters.

“Never say never, of course, but right now we are focused on a full slate of other @intrepid projects for 2021 and beyond.

“If things change we will absolutely let everyone know!”

All seven episodes of Midnight Mass were released on Netflix this morning, Friday, September 24.

Each one of them is named after a book in the Bible, tying in with the strong religious theme fans can expect from the horror series.

As far as Express.co.uk is aware, there will not be a season two.

Midnight Mass is now available to watch on Netflix.
