Nickelodeon’s Midnight Society members are coming back with a three-part limited series event in October, and the network confirmed the premiere date with an all-new trailer. The new “Are You Afraid of the Dark?” series is based on the hit show from the ’90s but is reimagined for a new generation. Part one of the new limited-series will debut on October 11th, with parts two and three to follow October 18th, and October 25th, respectively.
Over the three hour-long episodes, “Are You Afraid of the Dark?” will follow members of an entirely new Midnight Society, as they tell a terrifying tale of the Carnival of Doom and its evil ringmaster Mr. Tophat. It may have started as a story, but the kids’ ghoulish tale comes to life and threatens their town. In the new trailer, viewers meet the new members and get a glimpse at the uncertainty that awaits and prepare for an adventure beyond their wildest nightmares.
The new members of the Midnight Society are Rachel, played by Lyliana Wray; Gavin, played by Sam Ashe Arnold; Akiko, played by Miya Cech; Graham, played by Jeremy Taylor; and Louise, played by Tamara Smart. The Carnival of Doom’s ringmaster, Mr. Tophat, is played by Rafael Casal (Blindspotting).
The show is produced by ACE Entertainment with ACE founder Matt Kaplan and Spencer Berman serving as executive producers. The series is written by BenDavid Grabinski and directed by Dean Israelite (Power Rangers movie, Project Almanac), both of whom are also executive producers. Chris Foss is also an executive producer.
The original show was created by D.J. MacHale and Ned Kandel, who are also executive producers on the new project. The network released the trailer on social media, asking fans, “Do you like scary stories?”. You can watch the new video below, and set a reminder to catch the first part of the limited series on October 11th on Nickelodeon.
