Nickelodeon has announced the cast for their upcoming miniseries revival of “Are You Afraid of the Dark?” set to premiere in October. The fan-favorite original anthology horror series ran from 1992-1996, and then once again from 1999-2000 on Nickelodeon, and followed a group of teenagers who refer to themselves as “The Midnight Society” and met in the woods at night to share a series of spooky stories. The show broke ground in bringing kid-friendly scares to television.

As reported by Deadline, the 2019 revival will consist of three hour-long episodes and feature a new Midnight Society who share the story of the “Carnival of Doom,” only to find the story invading the real world. The cast of this new Society will include Sam Ashe Arnold (“Best. Worst. Weekend. Ever”), Miya Cech (“Rim of the World”), Tamara Smart("Artemis Fowl"), Jeremy Taylor (“It”), and Lyliana Wray (“Black-ish”). Joining the young cast is Rafael Casal (“Blindspotting”) as Mr. Tophat, the ringleader of the Carnival of Doom.

Dean Israelite (“Power Rangers,” “Project Almanac”) will direct the new series, while BenDavid Grabinski (“Skiptrace”) will write. Notably, both men were also attached to a film version of “Are You Afraid of the Dark?” which was intended to launch side-by-side with the new series. The film was, at one point, scheduled to be released on Oct. 11, 2019, by Paramount from director D.J. Caruso (“xXx: Return of Xander Cage”) prior to Israelite’s involvement.

Deadline reports that the film version has been delayed to an unspecified date following “behind-the-scenes changes.”
