Nickelodeon has ordered a reboot of horror fantasy anthology series “Are You Afraid of the Dark?” to air in three installments this October. The logline: Through three hour-long 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.
The new members of the Midnight Society are: Gavin, played by Sam Ashe Arnold (“Best.Worst.Weekend.Ever.”); Akiko, played by Miya Cech (“Rim of the World,” “Always Be My Maybe”; Louise, played by Tamara Smart (“Artemis Fowl, The Worst Witch”); Graham, played by Jeremy Taylor (“It,” “Goosebumps 2:Haunted Halloween”); and Rachel, played by Lyliana Wray (“Top Gun: Maverick”). The Carnival of Doom’s ringmaster, Mr. Tophat, is played by Rafael Casal (“Blindspotting”).
The “Are You Afraid of the Dark?” limited series is produced by ACE Entertainment with ACE founder Matt Kaplan and Spencer Berman serving as executive producers. Production on the new “Are You Afraid of the Dark?” will commence this month in Vancouver, Canada.
