Should 'Are You Afraid of the Dark?' Be Revived as a Full Series? | Nickelodeon Fan Poll

This October, Nickelodeon treated fans to the network's all-new Are You Afraid of the Dark? three-part limited series event. Based on the ‘90s kids’ cult classic, and reimagined for a new generation, Are You Afraid of the Dark? saw the return of The Midnight Society.

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

The Are You Afraid of the Dark? miniseries has been met with critical acclaim, with many fans calling for Are You Afraid of the Dark? to return as a full series.

If more Are You Afraid of the Dark? were to be commissioned, either by Nickelodeon or by a third-party streaming service such as Netflix, how would you like the series to return? Or maybe you think three episodes were just enough? Vote in the poll and sound off in the comments below!

The new members of the Midnight Society are: Rachel, played by Lyliana Wray (Top Gun: Maverick); Gavin, played by Sam Ashe Arnold (Best.Worst.Weekend.Ever.); Akiko, played by Miya Cech (Rim of the World, Always Be My Maybe); Graham, played by Jeremy Taylor (IT: Chapter Two, Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween); and Louise, played by Tamara Smart (Artemis Fowl, The Worst Witch). The Carnival of Doom’s ringmaster, Mr. Tophat, is played by Rafael Casal (Blindspotting).

The Are You Afraid of the Dark? limited series made its world premiere on Nickelodeon USA and YTV Canada on Friday, October 11, 2019. Following it's North American premiere, Are You Afraid of the Dark? will air over three nights starting Monday 28th October 2019 on Nickelodeon Australia & New Zealand and Wednesday 30th October 2019 on Nickelodeon UK & Ireland.
