Are You Afraid of the Dark Is a popular 90’s horror anthology series. It is well known for its creepy stories, and the plot is shown in a somewhat positive way. However, the series went through multiple rebooting in 1999 and then in 2019. The latter seasons are slowly inching towards darker themes.
Nickelodeon just tweeted a teaser trailer for its popular horror limited series, Are You Afraid of the Dark Season 2. The tweet warned us about an “upcoming curse.”
The trailer shows some new faces joining the midnight society and a creepy tree-like figure that Nickelodeon called “Shadowman” in their press release. The season is subtitled “Curse of the Shadow.”
The trailer speaks of three types of people we are likely to encounter in the upcoming season.
“…the people who believe in curses, the people who don’t believe in curses, and the people who should.”
The trailer appears like season 2 can be watched and enjoyed by people of all generations, as it is now inching towards scarier themes.
The members of the midnight society this season are;
- Luke (by Bryce Gheisar from Wonder)
- Jai (by Arjun Athalye)
- Hanna (by Beatrice Kitsos from iZombie)
- Gabby (by Malia Baker from The Baby-Sitters Club)
- Seth (by Dominic Mariche from The Christmas Yule Blog)
