“We’re all afraid of something…what are you afraid of?”

That is the question posed in the new official trailer for Nickelodeon’s upcoming limited series reboot of ‘Are You Afraid of the Dark?’

The tone and setup takes on the same approach ‘Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark’ and how they brought us into their world of scary stories as they come to life. Which makes complete sense.

Across the three hour-long episodes, ‘Are You Afraid of the Dark?’ will follow members of an entirely new Midnight Society, who tell a terrifying tale of the Carnival of Doom and its evil ringmaster Mr. Top Hat, only to witness the shocking story come frightfully to life.

The new limited series revival stars Sam Ashe Arnold, Miya Cech, Tamara Smart, Jeremy Taylor, Lyliana Wray, and Rafael Casal.

The series premieres on Friday, Oct. 11 at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT. With parts two and three to follow Oct. 18, and Oct. 25. Just in time for a spooky retro Halloween treat! Check out the official trailer below!
