Ahead of the season finale of ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK?: GHOST ISLAND, we have an exclusive sneak peek clip of the finale episode “The Tale of The Other Side” which will be airing this Saturday, August 13th on Nickelodeon. Caught in a battle between the living and the dead, a shattered Midnight Society must harness the power of friendship to piece itself together and restore peace to Ghost Island.

ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK?: GHOST ISLAND, the third chapter of the beloved horror anthology miniseries based on the ’90s kids’ cult classic, follows an all-new Midnight Society as they go on what they thought would be a fun summer vacation on a resort island, until they learn about something sinister haunting the guests.

The new members of the Midnight Society are: Kayla, played by Telci Huynh (Modern Love, Drama Club); Max, played by Conor Sherry (The Terminal List, The Devil You Know); Leo, played by Luca Padovan (You, School of Rock the Musical on Broadway); Summer played by Dior Goodjohn (Head of the Class); and Ferris, played by Chance Hurstfield (A Million Little Things, Good Boys). Julian Curtis (Wish Man) also stars as Stanley Crane, the hotel manager at the island resort.

ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK?: GHOST ISLAND follows last year’s six-part season, Are You Afraid of the Dark?: Curse of the Shadows, which aired during 1Q21 and was cable TV’s number-three live-action show with Kids 6-11 (behind #1 Danger Force and #2 Side Hustle). The second season of the anthology series saw a different Midnight Society group of kids tell a terrifying tale about a curse that had been cast over their small seaside town, haunted by a villain named the Shadowman. The series has recently received a Writer Guild Award and nominations from the Directors Guild Awards and Artios Awards.
