Are You Afraid of the Dark? is Returning as a Nickelodeon Miniseries

Are You Afraid of the Dark

Another former Nickelodeon mainstay is returning to screens this fall. The popular horror anthology series Are You Afraid of the Dark? will be revived as a miniseries, which coincides with the planned October release of the show's upcoming film adaptation.

Nickelodeon made the announcement earlier today and confirmed that the miniseries will continue the format of the original, which includes a group of kids called the Midnight Society gathering around a campfire in the woods to tell tales of macabre mystery and frightening fantasies.

Whether the miniseries will have an overarching plot or just stick with unconnected stories is not yet known, but it will feature a new version of The Midnight Society that's different from the one featured on the staple of Nickelodeon's 1990s schedule.

Created by D.J. MacHale and Ned Kandel, Are You Afraid of the Dark? was a Canadian show that aired on Nickelodeon in the United States for five seasons between 1992 to 1996, with a short-lived revival running for two seasons between 1999 and 2000.

Similar to Tales from the Crypt, the series would feature a member of The Midnight Society telling a story, which was then acted out in the actual plot of the episode. The series was also a critical and commercial hit and still has a place in the hearts of older fans who grew up with its spooky stories.

Set to air in Fall 2019, the Are You Afraid of the Dark? revival currently has no announced cast or premiere date as of yet.
