A sequel to the TV show “Midnight Mass” has yet to be announced, but it’s just a matter of time. According to unofficial sources, the production process for season 2 began in October 2021. Netflix is likely to continue broadcasting the supernatural horror series in the fall of 2022.
Washington. Upon arriving at his native fishing village on Crockett Island, Riley Flynn is greeted by his mom. The woman is very religious, she tries to protect her already matured son from sad thoughts about the past years and in every possible way tries to preserve the shaky peace in the family. His father Ed does not understand the new views of Riley, who considers himself an atheist.
Family tensions escalate when Riley refuses to go to church. Using authority, Ed forces his son to attend the service and the guy has to agree. Upon arrival, they realize that they have a new pastor in front of them – Father Paul, who is to replace the elderly Monsignor Pruitt. In a village with a population of 130 people, it is impossible not to notice a new face.
According to the pastor, during the camping trip, Pruitt began to behave strangely, which was noticed by those around him. He was sent to a hospital on the mainland, and Father Paul was sent in return. The parishioners took his words for the truth. Questions came later, when a local old lady began to insist that Father Paul was Pruitt. But initially, no one paid attention to her words…
Also in village recently came Erin Greene, Riley’s high school love. As a teenager, Erin constantly fought with her mother and longed for great heights in the big city. But life did not work out and she had to return. Now Erin is pregnant and periodically visits the local doctor to be sure of the condition of the unborn baby.
One day, Riley notices Monsignor Pruitt walking along the beach. A wild wind and rain begins. The guy understands that he needs to help the pastor. Running out into the street, he does not see anyone. But the next day, countless corpses of cats, which someone managed to break their necks, are thrown ashore. And then the seagulls pounced on the unprecedented prey.
From that moment on, strange things begin to happen in the village: Erin learns that she is not really pregnant. Leeza, confined to a wheelchair after a spinal injury, gets up and walks when the new pastor calls for it. Riley realizes that there is more than just imagination involved. But what exactly?
