The lead character of Ilonka will be portrayed by Iman Benson. Ilonka is a new member of
the hospice who has to share a room with Anya, one of its most ferocious
patients, who is played by Ruth Codd, a newcomer. Gradually she encounters
other members of the club like Kevin, a former high school athlete, played by
Igby Rigney; Sandra, a religious church-goer, portrayed by Annarah Cymone; and
Cheri, enacted by Adia, who is the quirky daughter of Hollywood celebrities.

Other cast members and the characters portrayed by them are Sauriyan Sapkota as Amesh, Chris Sumpter as Spencer and Aya Furukawa as Natsuki. Apart from them, Heather Langenkamp will star as an enigmatic doctor who runs the hospice. 


The story of The Midnight
Club, which is a 10-episode series based on Christopher Pike’s novel and other
works, is about a group of terminally sick teenagers who share a hospice that
is created for young people. They assemble in the facility’s well-stocked
library to share stories, where they agree that the first person to die will
contact the other in their afterlife, if there is one.


Netflix had posted a
three-minute trailer of The Midnight Club in September 2022. It starts with a
young woman whose aspiration of joining Stanford is not met as she is diagnosed
with cancer. She comes across a hospice for terminally ill adults. Check out the trailer right here:

other stories – and make a pact that the next of them to die will give the
group a sign from the beyond”
