As strange as it may seem, there was a time when Nickelodeon churned out some of the best genre programming on television. If you didn’t grow up in the 90s, that’s probably hard to believe–but as someone that was there and lived a childhood full of R-rated, ooey-gooey midnight marathons– I can assure you that Are You Afraid of the Dark was must-see TV at the time.
Whether you were along for the ride back then or will be circling around the campfire for the very first time, we have good news to share. Are You Afraid of the Dark is returning for a limited series revival this October. Unfortunately, that revival will be limited to 3 one hour episodes. Time will tell if it’s popular enough to warrant a longer run in the future.
The good news is that we now have our first official footage of the show courtesy of a teaser trailer shared by Entertainment Weekly. Check it out, below, and let us know on Twitter @Modernhorrors if you’ll be checking out the revival when it hits Nickelodeon this October.
Per Entertainment Weekly: A new group of Midnight Society kids gather around the fire to tell the terrifying story of the Carnival of Doom.
