Nickelodeon’s Are You Afraid of the Dark? — Curse of the Shadows, a follow-up to 2019’s reimagined limited series horror anthology, will come out on DVD Aug. 10 from Paramount Home Entertainment and Nickelodeon Home Entertainment.
Based on the ‘90s kids’ cult classic and featuring a new story, the second season includes six hour-long episodes that follow an all-new group of kids as they tell the tale of a curse that has been cast over their small seaside town, haunted by a villain named the Shadowman. After their leader goes missing, it’s up to the remaining members of the Midnight Society to break the curse and free the Shadowman’s victims, before they too disappear into the shadows.
The members of the newest chapter of the Midnight Society are: Luke, played by Bryce Gheisar (Wonder, Nickelodeon’s “The Astronauts”); Jai, played by Arjun Athalye; Hanna, played by Beatrice Kitsos (Child’s Play); Gabby, played by Malia Baker (“The Baby-Sitters Club”); Seth, played by Dominic Mariche (The Christmas Yule Blog); and Connor, played by Parker Queenan (“Party of Five”). The Shadowman is played by Kyle Strauts (“Flora & Ulysses”).
Are You Afraid of the Dark? — Curse of the Shadows episodes include “The Tale of the Haunted Woods,” “The Tale of the Night Frights,” “The Tale of the Phantom Light,” “The Tale of the Danse Macabre,” “The Tale of the Midnight Magic” and “The Tale of the Darkhouse.”
