Are You Afraid of The Dark? season 2 a go at Nickelodeon
Despite the original plan for last year’s Are You Afraid of the Dark? revival being a limited series run, Nickelodeon has chosen to greenlight a second season of the children’s horror series, according to The Wrap.
Over three one-hour episodes, the series introduces an entirely new Midnight Society group of kids who tell a terrifying tale about the Carnival of Doom, only to have the events of the story come to life.
This generation’s newest members of the Midnight Society include Sam Ashe Arnold (Best.Worst.Weekend.Ever.) as Gavin, Miya Cech (Always Be My Maybe) as Akiko, Tamara Smart (Artemis Fowl) as Louise, Jeremy Taylor (It) as Graham; and Lyliana Wray (Black-ish) as Rachel. Rafael Casal (Blindspotting) will play The Carnival of Doom’s ringmaster, Mr. Tophat.
The Are You Afraid of the Dark? limited series is produced by ACE Entertainment (To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before) with ACE founder Matt Kaplan and Spencer Berman serving as executive producers. The series is written by BenDavid Grabinski (Skiptrace) and directed by Dean Israelite (Power Rangers).
Inspired by the classic art of storytelling, Nickelodeon’s original Are You Afraid of the Dark? ran from 1992-1996, and again from 1999-2000, delivered riveting stories of horror to young audiences, all from a kid’s perspective and was created by D.J. MacHale and Ned Kandel.
