The three-episode revival will premiere this October and follow an entirely new group of kids who tell a terrifying tale about the Carnival of Doom, only to have the events of the story come to life.
The new members of the Midnight Society are: Gavin, played by Sam Ashe Arnold (“Best.Worst.Weekend.Ever.”); Akiko, played by Miya Cech; Louise, played by Tamara Smart; Graham, played by Jeremy Taylor; and Rachel, played by Lyliana Wray. The Carnival of Doom’s ringmaster, Mr. Tophat, is played by Rafael Casal (“Blindspotting”).
Production on the reimagined series begins this month in Vancouver, Canada.
When Nick first announced the project in February,it said the miniseries “will coincide with the upcoming ‘Are You Afraid of the Dark?’ theatrical movie from Paramount Pictures, Paramount Players’ and Nickelodeon Movies, in theaters October 2019.”
