Nickelodeon To Reboot 'Are You Afraid Of The Dark?' As A Mini-Series This October

As someone who admittedly wishes that we still lived in the '90s, I was beyond excited to hear the announcement that Nickelodeon would be rebooting Are You Afraid Of The Dark?

The reboot was announced in February 2019.


According to, the original announcement stated, "The beloved anthology series will return this October as a brand-new miniseries and follow new members of the Midnight Society as they gather around a campfire in the woods to share scary stories. The miniseries will coincide with the upcoming Are You Afraid of the Dark? theatrical movie from Paramount Pictures, Paramount Players’ and Nickelodeon Movies, in theaters October 2019."

And the new cast lineup was just released!

According to Deadline, "Sam Ashe Arnold (Best.Worst.Weekend.Ever.), Miya Cech (Rim of the World), Tamara Smart (Artemis Fowl, The Worst Witch), Jeremy Taylor (It, Goosebumps 2:Haunted Halloween), Lyliana Wray (Top Gun: Maverick, Black-ish), and Rafael Casal (Blindspotting) are set to star in the limited series slated for premiere in October."

We can't wait!
