Nickelodeon celebrated the return of a new Midnight Society in its famous young adult ’90s horror series, Are You Afraid of the Dark?, at New York Comic Con 2019. During a panel Friday afternoon fans got to enjoy stars from the show discussing the iconic horror series alongside executive producer Matt Kaplan and writer/executive producer Ben David Grabinski.
The show has been reimagined for a new generation, which you can see in the brand new extended trailer, available below.
The panel featured stars Lyliana Wray (Top Gun: Maverick), Sam Ashe Arnold (Best. Worst. Weekend. Ever.), Miya Cech (Rim of the World), Jeremy Ray Taylor (IT: Chapter Two) and Rafael Casal (Blindspotting). These are the newest members of the Midnight Society who will be featured in an upcoming three-part limited series event across three hour-long episodes in the tale of the Carnival of Doom.
