As we learned last year, IT writer Gary Dauberman has been tasked with penning Are You Afraid of the Dark? for Paramount, a feature film adaptation of the ’90s TV series.
Paramount dated the film for October 11, 2019 last December, and this week at CinemaCon they reminded of that date while sharing an (early) official logo for the film.

“The show is about the shared experience of telling stories — especially scary ones. We’re going to celebrate that with this movie and honor the darker, scarier tone of the show, which was really groundbreaking for Nickelodeon at the time. I hope the Midnight Society approves,” Dauberman recently told THR.
Dauberman will produce with Matt Kaplan.
The show revolved around a group of teenagers who referred to themselves as The Midnight Society. Every week, at a secret location in the woods, one member would tell a scary story to the rest of the group, some of which were based on public domain fairy tales, short stories or urban legends.
