Halloween is just around the corner and so is the return of the Midnight Gang. Nickelodeon just shared the first trailer for the reboot of Are You Afraid of the Dark?

If you grew up in the ’90s chances are you slept with a nightlight on after watching the original spooky series Are You Afraid of the Dark? and now it’s your kids turn for some scary good fun.

The new version is a three-part, limited series introducing a brand new campfire story for the Midnight Gang, The Carnival of Doom, which as the premise of the series goes, comes to life. This reboot is definitely not for younger viewers and appears to have a little less cheesiness and lot more edge than the original.

Part one of Are You Afraid of the Dark? premieres Oct. 11 at 7 p.m. EST on Nickelodeon. Parts two and three air on Oct. 18 and Oct. 25.
