The show follows the residents of Crockett Island, a community largely living in isolation, as they grapple with unexplained phenomena upon the arrival of a young priest, played by Hamish Linklater, known for his roles in “The Big Short” and “The Newsroom,” and the return of a young man, played by Zach Gilford of “Friday Night Lights.”

Flanagan was also the creator, producer and director of “The Haunting of Hill House,” a 2018 Netflix series inspired by Shirley Jackson’s novel about a family confronting memories of growing up in a haunted house. Flanagan was also the showrunner for the series’s second season, “The Haunting of Bly Manor,” which was released in 2020.
