Every episode of the show featured the Midnight Society, a group of teenagers who held secret meetings in the woods where they shared scary stories with each other, this incurring each episode's isolated haunted tale.

Paramount Pictures arm Paramount Players has hired Gary Dauberman, the writer behind New Line horror movies It and Annabelle: Creation, to pen the script and produce the project, THR has confirmed.

After almost two decades, it may be high time for the Midnight Society to reconvene in a brand new cinematic adaptation of Are You Afraid of the Dark?

The inimitable show ran from 1992-1996 (and then a one season stint in 1999) on Nickelodeon's SNICK programming, which, for the unfortunate people who don't remember, ran on Saturday nights from 8-10 p.m. Most of the stories had a happy ending, even though they dealt with ghosts, demons, aliens, and a variety of monsters.

The anthology series premiered on Nickelodeon on Halloween of 1990 (how appropriate), and was such a success that it aired for ten years until 2000.

Are You Afraid of the Dark? was originally a Canadian TV series aimed at teens, and was picked up by Nickelodeon in the early '90s.

So, horror buffs, fear not: The film adaptation will be legitimately scary. He has fond memories of going to Waldbaum's supermarket with his mother and being rewarded with a 3-pack of sealed comics.
