Nickelodeon’s revived Are You Afraid of the Dark? has selected new members for the Midnight Society. Sam Ashe Arnold (Best. Worst. Weekend. Ever.), Tamara Smart (Artemis Fowl), Jeremy Taylor (It), Miya Cech (Rim of the World), and Lyliana Wray (Black-ish) are all starring in the limited series. The new Midnight Society will tell the tale of the Carnival of Doom, but the events of the story end up coming to life. Rafael Casal (Blindspotting) will play Mr. Tophat, the carnival’s ringmaster. Written by BenDavid Grabinski and directed by Dean Israelite, the limited series is meant to coincide with the Are You Afraid of the Dark? movie, set to come out later this year. The new series is just one of a few reups Nickelodeon has in its sights. They’re also planning SpongeBob SquarePants spinoffs, an All That revival, and a Blue’s Clues remake. It’s a comfort to know that even though they’re going to terrify a new generation, they still have good ole SpongeBob to ease the pain.
