New ‘Goosebumps’ Series to Launch Oct. 13 on Disney+, Hulu

“Goosebumps,” the new series inspired by R.L. Stine’s best-selling Scholastic book series, will debut on both Disney+ and Hulu Oct. 13.

The 10-episode series, from Disney Branded Television and Sony Pictures Television, will launch with a five-episode drop as part of Disney+’s “Hallowstream” and Hulu’s “Huluween” celebrations, with subsequent new episodes streaming weekly. Additionally, the series’ first two episodes will air on Freeform Oct. 13, as part of its “31 Nights of Halloween” programming. 

“R.L. Stine’s ‘Goosebumps’ franchise is a pop culture phenomenon that holds a special place in the hearts of people of all ages,” said Ayo Davis, president of Disney Branded Television. “We are delighted to bring this spooky new series to audiences everywhere in a big way on Disney+ and Hulu, which we hope will not only captivate new audiences with its elevated thrills and chills, but also lifelong fans nostalgic for the stories that are a staple of their generation.”

The new “Goosebumps” series follows a group of five high schoolers as they embark on a shadowy and twisted journey to investigate the tragic passing three decades earlier of a teen named Harold Biddle — while also unearthing dark secrets from their parents’ past.

Published by Scholastic, “Goosebumps” is one of the best-selling book series of all time, with more than 400 million books in print in 32 languages. The new television series draws on elements from five of the most popular middle grade books including “Say Cheese and Die!,” “The Haunted Mask,” “The Cuckoo Clock of Doom,” “Go Eat Worms!” and “Night of the Living Dummy.”

“Goosebumps” stars Justin Long and Rachael Harris, alongside newcomers Zack Morris, Isa Briones, Miles McKenna, Ana Yi Puig and Will Price.
