Another Mike Flanagan Netflix project is almost in the can.
The Fall of the House of Usher–the new Netflix series based on the works of Edgar Allan Poe–may be getting close to a wrap, if a recent Twitter post from one of the stars can be believed.
Check out the tweet and photo on this page from Rahul Kohli–courtesy of collider.com–that hints that his part has finished shooting. The pic shows the actor’s chair covered in an “early wrap gift from Kate Siegel” (in the form of goldfish crackers) that could mean the post-production process is not far off.

The eight-episode limited series–that draws on Poe’s classic 1839 short story and other sources–is written, directed and produced by Flanagan and is expected to debut on Netflix sometime next year.
The series–which also stars Carla Gugino, Carl Lumbly, Samantha Sloyan, Henry Thomas, T’Nia Miller, Kate Siegel and Bruce Greenwood–will feature “themes of madness, family, isolation and metaphysical identities,” according to the brief logline.
The show reportedly will be narrated by a man who has been invited to visit his childhood friend, Roderick Usher, who “gradually makes it clear that his twin sister Madeline has been placed in the family vault not quite dead. When she reappears in her blood-stained shroud, the visitor rushes to leave as the house splits and sinks into a lake.”
