Are You Afraid of the Dark? (Nick) -- limited series revival

EXCLUSIVE: Nickelodeonís reimagined version of iconic anthology series Are You Afraid of the Dark? is coming together. Sam Ashe Arnold (Best.Worst.Weekend.Ever.), Miya Cech (Rim of the World), Tamara Smart (Artemis Fowl, The Worst Witch), Jeremy Taylor (It, Goosebumps 2:Haunted Halloween), Lyliana Wray (Top Gun: Maverick, Black-ish), and Rafael Casal (Blindspotting) are set to star in the limited series slated for premiere in October.

Written by BenDavid Grabinski (Skiptrace) and directed by Dean Israelite (Power Rangers movie, Project Almanac), the three-episode hourlong limited 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.

The new members of the Midnight Society are: Gavin (Arnold), Akiko (Cech, Louise (Smart), Graham (Taylor) and Rachel (Wray). The Carnival of Doomís ringmaster, Mr. Tophat, is played by Casal.

Nickelodeonís original Are You Afraid of the Dark? broke the mold by exploring a whole new genre of entertainment. A joint production of Canada-based Cinar and Nickelodeon and created by D.J. MacHale and Ned Kandel, the series aired on Nickelodeon from 1992 to 1996 and again from 1999-2000, as well as on YTV in Canada. One of the netís signature series from the Ď90s, Are You Afraid of the Dark? delivered stories of horror to young audiences, all from a kidís perspective.

When the Are You Afraid of the Dark? revival was first announced in February as part of Nickelodeonís upcoming slate, the network said that ďthe miniseries will coincide with the upcoming Are You Afraid of the Dark? theatrical movie from Paramount Pictures, Paramount Playersí and Nickelodeon Movies, in theaters October 2019.Ē

That movie has since been moved out of its October 11 release date and is expected to debut later following some behind-the-scene changes.

The Are You Afraid of the Dark? limited series is produced by ACE Entertainment (To All The Boys Iíve Loved Before) with ACE founder Matt Kaplan and Spencer Berman serving as executive producers. Grabinski and Israelite also executive produce.

Taylor is repped by manager Tracy Taylor, Paradigm and attorney Geoffrey W. Oblath.

If this doesn't get the original a complete series set release(though admittedly lots of the acting in it is REALLY awful) then I don't know what will.

Amazon released most of the seasons as burn on demand released but they didnít finish. I think they got to season five and there were six total.
