Along with a planned movie hitting cinemas, Nickelodeon’s classic horror anthology series “Are You Afraid of the Dark” is also returning to the small screen later this year with the network reportedly planning a miniseries that will lead into the film.
In the original series, a group of kids called The Midnight Society would gather around a campfire in the woods, and one of them would tell a tale of terror. The new mini-series will launch in October and follow new members of the Midnight Society.
The miniseries aims to coincide with the upcoming film from Paramount Pictures, Paramount Players and Nickelodeon Movies which launches in cinemas at the same time. D.J. Caruso helms that film from a script by Gary Dauberman and BenDavid Grabinski.
