Nickelodeon is perhaps best remembered for its library of shows in the 1990’s. Aside from the animated hits we all know like Doug or Rocko’s Modern Life, Nick made a large impact on young horror fans with Are You Afraid of the Dark?
If you’re unfamiliar with the show, then you’re in for a real treat. The series initially ran from 1992 to 1996, making it older than the more popular Goosebumps series from 1995. It had one more run from 1999 to 2000 before being totally cancelled.
The format of the series was simple – each episode focused on its own story, told by a group of kids labeled The Midnight Society. The segments were presented as campfire stories and retained a darker style than the aforementioned Goosebumps.
If you haven’t seen it, or would like to revisit the classic series, you’ll be happy to know a newer streaming service titled VRV carries Are You Afraid of the Dark? and various other classic Nick shows via their NickSplat channel. You can already watch a portion of NickSplat for free, but it won’t include everything available.
