Netflix Will Debut ‘The Fall Of The House Of Usher’ This Fall

by Thomas Tuna

The fall hits home this fall.

The Fall of the House of Usher--the Netflix series based on Edgar Allan Poe’s classic 1839 short story–now has a release window: this fall (perhaps around Halloween?), according to a report on Collider. Stay tuned for an exact debut date.

The eight-episode series–written, directed and produced by Mike Flanagan–has been described as “dark and blood-soaked and wicked and funny and scary” by Flanagan himself. “We left everything on the field,” he added, “it’s just bombastic fun.”

The show follows Roderick Usher (Bruce Greenwood) and an invited guest and childhood friend, as Usher reveals secrets about his mysterious home and his twin sister Madeline (Mary McDonnell).

The series will be narrated by the guest, who gradually learns that Madeline Usher “has been placed in the family vault–not quite dead,” according to the synopsis. “When she reappears in her blood-stained shroud, the visitor rushes to leave–as the house splits and sinks into the lake.”

The cast is rounded out by Carla Gugino, Carl Lumbly, Samantha Sloyan, Henry Thomas, T’Nia Miller, Mark Hamill and Kate Siegel.
