With the spooky season almost upon us, a brand new series based on R.L. Stine’s “Goosebumps” books, is coming to Disney+. The new series follows a group of five high schoolers who unleash supernatural forces upon their town and must all work together – thanks to and in spite of their friendships, rivalries, and pasts with each other – in order to save it, learn much about their own parents’ teenage secrets in the process.
“Goosebumps” is one of the best-selling book series of all time and has sold over 400 million copies of the book series, which spans 200 different books. The new series will star Justin Long, Ana Yi Puig, Miles McKenna, Rachael Harris, Will Price, Zack Morris and Isa Briones.
During a recent preview by The Wrap for some upcoming shows coming to this Fall, a first-look image from the upcoming series, “Goosebumps” was revealed.
This new series has been in development since April 2020 and has a 10-episode order for Disney+. It has been written by Nick Stoller and Rob Letterman, who are also executive producers on the show. Rob Letterman has directed the first episode. He has previously directed the 2015 “Goosebumps” film, which was also produced by Neal H. Moritz, who is also an executive producer on the series, along with Pavun Shetty of Original Film, Conor Welch of Stoller Global Solutions, and Iole Lucchese and Caitlin Friedman of Scholastic Entertainment are also executive producing the show.
Sony Television Pictures have created the new show, and there have been reports that the show might also be released on Hulu at the same time. No release details for the upcoming “Goosebumps” show have been officially revealed, but hopefully, it won’t be too long until we get a release date.
