As a kid, whenever Nickelodeon’s Are You Afraid of the Dark? started playing, I would always grab the remote as fast as I could to change the channel. Now, Nick is bringing back the anthology series with an all-new cast to scare a new generation of kids.
Meet the newest members of the Midnight Society: Sam Ashe Arnold (Best. Worst. Weekend. Ever.), Tamara Smart (Artemis Fowl), Jeremy Taylor (It), Miya Cech (Rim of the World), and Lyliana Wray (Black-ish).
It’s time to round up the gang again and share stories that will send shivers up and down our spines. The limited series will have the kids telling the terrifying tale of the Carnival of Doom, but things go south as their stories start coming true.
Nick also announced that Blindspotting‘s Rafael Casal will play Mr. Tophat, the carnival’s ringmaster.
This anthology series first aired on Nickelodeon in the 1990s. The reboot consists of three episodes, each an hour long, and premieres in October. We can’t wait for Are You Afraid of the Dark? to scare and creep out a whole new generation.
In addition to this reboot, Nick also has plans of an All That revival and a Spongebob Squarepants spinoff. Follow Nickelodeon on Twitter to get all the latest updates.
