Nickelodeon has released a first look at Are You Afraid Of The Dark?'s next generation of spooky storytellers.
The cast, from left to right, is Tamara Smart (Artemis Fowl), Jeremy Ray Taylor (It), Lyliana Wray (Strange Angel), Sam Ashe Arnold (Best. Worst. Weekend. Ever) and Miya Cech (The Darkest Minds). The upcoming revival will be a miniseries, rather than a full-series reboot, and is set to debut on Nickelodeon in October of this year.
Created by D.J. MacHale and Ned Kandel, and originally airing between 1990 and 1996 on Nickelodeon, with two more seasons airing between 1999 and 2000, Are You Afraid of the Dark? was a Canadian horror anthology series that focused on the Midnight Society, a gang of kids who would gather around a fire and tell spooky stories that serve as the plot of the episode à la Tales from the Crypt.
A film adaptation of the series was announced in 2017, with the series originally set to air alongside its planned release in October. However, the movie has been postponed and removed from Paramount's schedule.
Directed by David Israelite with a script by BenDavid Grabinski, Are You Afraid of the Dark? stars Lyliana Wray, Rafael Casal, Jeremy Taylor, Miya Cech, Sam Ashe Arnold and Tamara Smart. The miniseries will air sometime in October on Nickelodeon.
