Sony Pictures TV, Scholastic and ‘Goosebumps’ film producer Neal Moritz are developing a new series based on R. L. Stine’s hugely popular children’s horror novels.
Let’s take a break from the terrors happening outside our doors and switch our attention to the sinister small screen; a new horror TV show is coming, and it’s about to get nostalgic. R. L. Stine’s Goosebumps, the second best-selling book series of all time, is being resurrected as a live-action series. Neal H. Moritz, the producer of both the 2015 and 2018 Goosebumps films, will executive produce, alongside Sony Pictures Television and Scholastic Entertainment. This show has a lot to live up to, as the original 1990s series on Fox Kids captured a cult audience and high ratings for all four seasons.
“I loved making the Goosebumps movies and can’t wait to bring even more of R. L. Stine’s incredible stories to life through a high-end television series that speaks to both adults and kids alike,” says Moritz.
We don’t know anything about potential plots just yet, but it will most likely be an anthology like the original. We do know that there will be plenty of eerie and bizarre situations involving the supernatural with an added pinch of the macabre. If you can’t wait to get your creep on, you can watch the original series now on Netflix.
The show will be executive produced by Moritz, Iole Lucchese, Caitlin Friedman, and Pavan Shetty. R.L. Stine’s involvement is currently unknown. With any luck, he’ll reprise his role of the sinister host, or perhaps he’ll pass the torch to another deserving creepster. Jack Black, anyone?
