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 Players, a new division at Paramount Pictures led by Awesomeness founder Brian Robbins, is developing what will be an adaptation of the popular Nickelodeon 90s show Are You Afraid of the Dark? That's because one of the writers from It, Gary Dauberman, has reportedly signed on to the film. 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. The group of teen storytellers called the Midnight Society left no subject un-horror-fied - meaning they knew just how to make any seemingly harmless tale terrifying once the lights went out.

One of the screenwriters for It is working on bringing Are You Afraid of the Dark to the big screen.
