Premiering October 11 on Nickelodeon, a scene from the Are You Afraid of the Dark miniseries has been uploaded online to give viewers a glimpse of what’s in store.
First aired in 1990 and continuing until 1996 and again from 1999 to 2000 in a second series, each rendition of the show focused on a group of storytellers who called themselves “The Midnight Society.” They would gather every Saturday night at a clearing in the woods for a member to tell a tale around a campfire that would often include ghosts, witches, goblins and other spooky creatures.
The new group includes Sam Ashe Arnold as Gavin, Miya Cech as Akiko, Tamara Smart as Louise, Jeremy Ray Taylor as Graham and Lyliana Wray as Rachel. Rafael Casal stars as The Carnival of Doom’s ringmaster, Mr. Tophat, the miniseries’ main antagonist.
No original cast members from either of the 1990’s series are slated to return.
