"One of the main things we assumed was that younger viewers could deal with scares," Flanagan said in an interview with Empire, addressing how he''s adjusting his approach to a project that will be more complex to viewers. To that end, viewers should also avoid having long, intricate and intense monologues. "I wouldn''t subject a viewer of ''The Midnight Club'' to an eight-minute monologue," Flanagan said.
Adia, Igby Rigney, Ruth Codd, William Chris Sumpter, Annarah Shephard, Zach Gilford, Iman Benson, Larsen Thompson, and Michael Fimognari are among the stars on the show. Elan Gale, James Flanagan, and Chinaka Hodge have joined the cast.
