The 90s kid’s horror show Are You Afraid of the Dark? returned in 2019 with a revival series that older fans and newcomers enjoyed. Now, the second season of the Nickelodeon reboot is here to scare up even more viewers.
This second installment is titled Are You Afraid of the Dark? Curse of the Shadows and will include six episodes as part of its limited series run. Curse of the Shadows introduces the new villain Shadowman, which gives off a kid-friendly Nightmare on Elm Street vibe.
Check out the trailer here:
“Curse of the Shadows follows an all-new Midnight Society group of kids who learn of the terrifying curse cast over their small seaside town and are haunted by a mysterious creature known as the Shadowman.”
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).
