‘Are You Afraid Of The Dark?’ Season 2 Gets New Teaser That Reveals “Cursed” Title

It’s a brand-new year, but Nickelodeon still wants to know: “Are you afraid of the dark?”

The popular kid-horror series Are You Afraid of the Dark? heads into its second season this year with a still-to-be-announced debut date and a new teaser clip, as reported by comicbook.com. That video–which you can view on this page–reveals the title of the new season: Curse of the Shadows.

The series–led by executive producers Matt Kaplan and Spencer Berman–seems to be going the route of the now-popular anthology theme, with Season 2 reportedly not being directly connected to last season’s episodes.

The first season saw the Midnight Society relate the eerie tale of the Carnival of Doom and ringmaster Mr. Top Hat, “only to witness the shocking story come frightfully to life.”

In the six-episode second season, the new society members will tell a story “about a curse that has been cast over their small seaside town”–a place that is haunted by “an all-new villain named the Shadowman.”

The new Midnight Society includes Bryce Gheisar as Luke, Arjun Athalye as Jai, Beatrice Kitsos as Hanna, Malia Baker as Gabby, Dominic Mariche as Seth and Parker Queenan as Connor.

Nickelodeon’s original Are You Afraid of the Dark? series–created D.J. MacHale and Ned Kandel–ran from 1992-1996 and again from 1999-2000.
