1 9 9 0 – 2 0 0 0 (USA/Canada)
This horror anthology TV series aired on Nickelodeon from 1992–1996 (after premiering in Canada in 1990) before being revived for new episodes in 1999–2000.
An entire generation of ’90s children and teens were raised on episodes of Are You Afraid of the Dark?, which took viewers to a campfire in the woods where teenage members of a group known as The Midnight Society told scary stories to each other every night.
The stories would come to life on screen, often containing a moral lesson or reflection of something going on in the storytellers’ lives.
