WATCH: ‘Are You Afraid of the Dark?’ Reboot Teaser

are you afraid of the dark

Submitted for the approval of The Midnight Society…

Growing up in the ’90s, Are You Afraid of the Dark? was always one of my favorite, absolutely can’t-miss-it TV shows. Like The Twilight Zone for kids, “The Midnight Society” shared creepy tales around a campfire, and it became an iconic show in an era of so many iconic series for Nickelodeon. It’s a good year for nostalgia, ’90s babies, because not only is Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark getting a movie, we’re soon to get a reboot of Are You Afraid of the Dark?

Nick dropped a new short trailer that teases a bit about what we can expect from the upcoming Are You Afraid of the Dark? season. Although there’s just a fast glimpse of some fear-inducing imagery (and we can probably anticipate a story involving clowns?), the vibe matches the original. “Everyone’s afraid of something,” the young narrator says with a sly grin. “Especially when you turn out the lights.”

It’ll be interesting to see what sort of twisted stories this newest version of Are You Afraid of the Dark? dreams up. Check out the teaser trailer below! Were you a fan of Are You Afraid of the Dark? back in the day? Do you have a favorite episode that creeped you out? Share in the comments!
