Nickelodeon’s ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK?, the beloved horror anthology series, is returning with an all-new “Midnight Society.” Season 2 will introduce a new group of kids telling a terrifying tale about a curse that has been cast over their small seaside town, haunted by an new villain named the Shadowman. Produced by ACE Entertainment, Are You Afraid of the Dark? premieres in 2021 on Nickelodeon.
The new members of the Midnight Society are Luke, played by Bryce Gheisar (The Astronauts, Wonder); Jai, played by Arjun Athalye; Hanna, played by Beatrice Kitsos (Child’s Play, iZombie); Gabby, played by Malia Baker (The Baby-Sitters Club); Seth, played by Dominic Mariche (The Christmas Yule Blog, A Gift to Cherish); and Connor, played by Parker Queenan (Party of Five, Andi Mack). Season one of the reimagined limited series, which aired across three hour-long episodes in October 2019, saw a different Midnight Society group of kids enter the Carnival of Doom to face off against its evil ringmaster, Mr. Tophat.
All three parts of Are You Afraid of the Dark? season one will air back-to-back on Friday, Oct. 30, beginning at 7:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.
From humble beginnings as a bisexual art kid who drank more coffee than a 40-year-old author, Remy now holds a BFA in Film Production from Chapman University and is a proud member of the HorrorBuzz team (and still a bisexual art kid who drinks too much coffee). They were first introduced to the world of horror and camp when their grandma showed them The Rocky Horror Picture Show at age 5, and never looked back. When they're not writing cartoons or working on movies, one can spot them in various clubs around Los Angeles performing very, very self-deprecating standup comedy. Howdy ho!
