Fall of the House of Usher Release Date, Time, Trailer, and Plot for Mike Flanagan's Netflix Thriller

Everything you need to know about what's probably the last entry in the Netflix "Flanaverse."


Mike Flanagan has made himself an institution at Netflix. Beginning with his family drama horror The Haunting of Hill House, he established an entire extended universe of creepy tales full of dread, ghosts, and lots and lots of monologues. But now, an overall deal with Amazon and a chance to adapt Stephen King’s “unadaptable” series The Dark Tower means we’re probably seeing the last installment of Flanagan’s Netflix portfolio — and he’s going out with a bang.

The Fall of the House of Usher is a Poe-flavored family tragedy that takes heavy inspiration from a real-life pharma empire. It’s also the culmination of many themes, and cast members, Flanagan has utilized over his entire career. Here’s everything you need to know about the series, from when it airs, to what it’s about.
