The family fantasy drama was written by BenDavid Grabinski (‘Skiptrace,’ ‘Happily’) and directed by Dean Israelite (‘Power Rangers movie,’ ‘Project Almanac’), both of whom are also executive producers. The new members of the Midnight Society are Rachel, played by Lyliana Wray (‘Top Gun: Maverick,’ ‘Black-ish’); Gavin, played by Sam Ashe Arnold (‘Best.Worst.Weekend.Ever.’); Akiko, played by Miya Cech (‘Rim of the World,’ ‘Always Be My Maybe’); Graham, played by Jeremy Taylor (‘IT: Chapter Two,’ ‘Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween’); and Louise, played by Tamara Smart (‘Artemis Fowl,’ ‘The Worst Witch’).

So they must prepare for an adventure beyond their wildest nightmares.
