We’re now just a few days away from the return of Nickelodeon’s Are You Afraid of the Dark?” reboot, with the six-part limited series premiering on Friday, Feb. 12, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT).
The second season of the series is titled “Are You Afraid of the Dark? Curse of the Shadows,” and we’ve got nearly five minutes of footage from the new season today. In it, an ill-fated character seeks out a mysterious book in the hopes that it will aid him in his fight with brand new series villain the Shadowman, but it may end up being too little and too late.
Find the clip below and head over to @Fangoria for a look at the opening credits as well!
New episodes will be airing every Friday night, of course only on Nickelodeon.
“Curse of the Shadows follows an all-new Midnight Society group of kids who learn of the terrifying curse cast over their small seaside town, and are haunted by a mysterious creature known as the Shadowman.”
