The Fall of the House of Usher Season 1 Release Date: When Will it Premiere?
Unfortunately, a date has not yet been set for when we will see the first season of the Netflix show. The series was initially scheduled for December 2021 production, but this was later rescheduled. The initial production was to start on January 24th in Vancouver and wrap up in May, but this never came to be. Filming started much later than expected, and it wrapped up in July.
Bridge Studios, the studio behind Most of Mike Flanagan’s series, including the “Haunting of Bly Manor,” had filmed the series from when it started to its wrap. Since filming is already done and only post-production is left, if we are lucky, we might see the series before the year ends or early next year.
