News of the cancellation came hours after Mike Flanagan and Trevor Macy moved their overall deal from Netflix to Amazon Studios.

“Mike and Trevor are remarkable at telling immersive, suspenseful stories that masterfully keep audiences engaged from start to finish,” said Vernon Sanders, head of global television at Amazon Studios.

“We are excited to welcome them to Amazon Studios and are looking forward to our global customers experiencing their genre-bending creativity.”

“Amazon is a studio that we have long admired,” said Flanagan and Macy.

“Their commitment to engaging in groundbreaking series and content aligns with the ethos of what we have built at Intrepid."

"We are looking forward to working with the entire Amazon team as we bring our brand of genre productions to the service and audiences around the globe.”

News of the cancellation of The Midnight Club isn't all that surprising.

Despite decent reviews, the series never broke out in the way some of the other supernatural series did.
