The new miniseries adaptation of the eerie work by Edgar Allan Poe, The Fall of the House of Usher is the latest series in a multi-year partnership between director Mike Flanagan and Netflix. Based on what we know, it may be the darkest of Flanagan’s works yet, following the crumbling of a family dynasty as one by one its heirs begin to die horrible, mysterious deaths.
Siblings Roderick (Bruce Greenwood) and Madeline Usher (Mary McDonnell) are ruthless in business and have built their pharmaceutical company into a powerful, privileged empire. When Venra (Carla Gugino), a mysterious woman from their past, returns, her supernatural powers are swiftly turned against Rodericks children, who are soon met with violent ends.
The Fall of the House of Usher Cast
In addition to Greenwood, McDonnell, and Gugino, the extensive ensemble cast includes Rahul Kohli, Kate Siegel, Henry Thomas, T’Nia Miller, Samantha Sloyan, Zach Gilford, Willa Fitzgerald, Michael Trucco, Matt Biedel, Ruth Codd, Crystal Balint, Aya Furukawa, Carl Lumbly, Mark Hamill, Paola Nuñez, Kyliegh Curran, Sauriyan Sapkota, Katie Parker, Malcolm Goodwin, Daniel Jun, Annabeth Gish, Igby Rigney, and Robert Longstreet.
Many of the cast may be familiar with Flanagan’s past Netflix projects: The Midnight Club, Midnight Mass, The Haunting of Bly Manor, and The Haunting of Hill House. However, after several years of delivering trauma and scares to audiences on Netflix, this may be their last partnership. Last year, Flanagan and collaborators signed an exclusive deal with Amazon Studios. Word has it they are currently adapting Stephen King’s fantasy epic The Dark Tower into a series.
