We just have one question. Do you like scary stories?
Nickelodeon asks us once again Are you Afraid of the Dark? This is a throwback we can all enjoy. It’s the guilty pleasure without the guilt and all of the things we loved and feared about our childhood.
There has been a recurring theme of bringing shows we love back from the grave. Nickelodeon is hopping on board.
The trailer of Nickelodeon’s reboot has premiered. The new take on an old show comes in the form of a limited series reboot featuring an all new cast. The main cast includes Jeremy Taylor (IT), Sam Ashe Arnold (Best.Worst.Weekend.Ever), Tamara Smart (Artemis Fowl), Lyliana Wray (Black-ish), and Miya Cech (Rim of the World) and Rafael Casal (Blindspotting).
Much like the original, the show will follow The Midnight Society as they tell terrifying stories about the Carnival of Doom and its ringmaster, Mr. Top Hat. It wouldn’t be Are you afraid of the Dark if the stories didn’t come to life during these tales. During each of the three, hour long episodes we will get a glimpse at what goes on in the Carnival of Doom.
Based on the trailer, it looks like Nick has opted to keep the stories just as terrifying as they were in the 90s. What else can we expect when original showrunner We can’t wait! Also.. we can. Check out the trailer below.
