Are you afraid of the dark? he’s back for another round of scares.
A new season of Nickelodeon’s reboot of the ’90s cult classic begins Friday with six new episodes featuring a new mystery and cast of characters, and only ET has the exclusive first look at the premiere.
Are you afraid of the dark ?: Curse of the Shadows follows a new group of Midnight Society kids who learn of the terrifying curse cast on their small coastal town and are hunted by a mysterious creature known as the Shadowman.
“We have to keep increasing the fear factor in each episode! It was really important, especially after the original show, where each episode had its own ghost tale or spooky story around the campfire, that we captured that essence and gave each episode its own little theme or distinction throughout the season’s history, “executive producer / showrunner JT Billings exclusively tells ET. “The first one immediately draws you in with this great mystery, we go into the woods. Episode 2 is much more about pop culture horror and Episode 3 is doing séances. We were very excited about the opportunity not only have different elements of horror in different episodes, but build on them until we reach our grand finale, which is hopefully the scariest episode yet. “
The new season features Luke (Bryce Gheisar), Jai (Arjun Athalye), Hanna (Beatrice Kitsos), Gabby (The babysitting clubMalia Baker), Seth (Dominic Mariche) and Connor (Parker Queenan).
Are you afraid of the dark ?: Curse of the Shadows premieres Friday, February 12 at 8 pm ET / PT on Nickelodeon.
