The Midnight Club Season 2 Release Date: Is it Going to Release?

The fans of the drama series are highly anticipating the prospects of the show. However, we are fortunate to reveal that the showrunner has canceled the production of the show. Earlier, Flanagan revealed the news about the continuation of the series by saying,

“This was designed to be ongoing don’t know if it will. We’ll see how it goes and we probably won’t know for another month or so what Netflix wants to do. But it was very much designed to continue. Pike has 80 books, so we have a lot of unused material to pull from…

We also didn’t answer some of the bigger questions of the season. Those answers exist but were meant to be for the next season. If there isn’t one, I’ll put them up on Twitter. Then we’ll at least all be able to talk about it.”

However, later, the series was canceled and he revealed this through his Tumblr post. The post reads, “It’s a shame we won’t get to make it, but it would be a bigger shame if you guys simply had to live with the unanswered questions and the cliffhanger ending,”

The Midnight Club Season 1 Ended tragically, What is the future?

When the first season of the show ended, the majority of people were excited to see what exactly happened later in the story. As the show has already been canceled, the creator revealed everything about the show and the future of it.

Flanagan wrote. “But more than that…there’s a reason that Ilonka only sees Stanley in the mirror, and sees the Cataract Woman whenever she looks at Kevin. This is something else we took from Pike’s original book…these aren’t ghosts, but glimpses of PAST LIVES.

Ilonka WAS Stanley Oscar Freelan, and Kevin WAS his wife. They’ve lived many lives this way, and are true SOUL MATES — they always find each other, and they always fall in love. In this life, they knew it would be a short one, so they agreed to find each other in the house they built.”

Flanagan revealed that first Amesh (Sauriyan Sapkota), then Natsuki (Aya Furukawa), then Kevin, and then Ilonka would die. Also, Spence (Chris Sumpter) leaves the hospice upon a positive response to HIV treatments.

Cheri (Adia) would be the only survivor who is telling the story of her dead friends. “When the Shadow comes for Ilonka, and gives her this understanding — this ‘remembering’ — she realizes she has nothing to fear,” Flanagan wrote.“ She and Kevin will shed these personas and be reborn, and have the joy of finding each other another way.”

He further says, “Dr. Stanton is the daughter of the original Paragon cult leader, Aceso. Her nickname was Athena, she wrote the Paragon journal that Ilonka found in [Season 1]. She turned on her mother and helped the kids escape, but because she was part of the cult in her teenage years, she had the tattoo.”

Flanagan continued: “She is wearing a wig at the end of [Season 1] not because of a sinister reason, but because she is undergoing chemo. Dr. Stanton has cancer. Having helped so many people deal with disease, she now has to deal with it herself. Her treatment would be successful, and she’d go into remission, but having to face that – while caring for the terminal kids at Brightcliffe — was going to be a very introspective arc for Stanton.”

The plot point, Flanagan, was most excited to reveal the story of the series. He said, “‘REMEMBER ME’ is one of my all-time favorite Pike books — it tells the story of a teenage girl who is pushed off a balcony, and awakens as a ghost,”

“She has to navigate being a spirit while trying to solve her murder. We would have stretched this story out over five episodes. We were going to use it as a vehicle for Ilonka to try to come to terms with the fact that she is going to die, and to begin to try to wrap her head around being a ghost….but this is the coolest part…the lead character of Ilonka’s story wouldn’t be played by Ilonka. She’d be played by…Anya.”

Flanagan continued, “Because this is how we live on, isn’t it? In the minds of those we leave behind. And Ilonka would use ‘REMEMBER ME’ as a way to imagine her dear friend Anya, waking up as a ghost, navigating the afterlife.”
