Update (10/1) - Submitted for approval of the Midnight Society - the Carnival of Doom is on Fortnite! ☠️🎡 The Map is available in creative mode at code 4763-4357-6721 if you dare to check it out ☠️

Could Are You Afraid of the Dark? be heading to Fortnite? BenDavid Grabinski, the writer and executive producer of Nickelodeon's upcoming Are You Afraid of the Dark? revival has teased on Twitter that the Carnival of Doom could be visiting the extremely popular video game soon!

Grabinski yesterday shared a cryptic image on Twitter of what appears to be the opening to the new carnival in the limited series, with the hashtag "#AreYouAfraidOfTheDark", but something about the image is a bit... off. You can check it out below:

It's not exactly an incredibly detailed image, but it certainly looks like there's some clear Fortnite signs in there. For example, the trees look straight out of the game, and the sky has what appears to be a couple different cracks in it. Given how soon the limited series is set to premiere, if it's really some sort of event and not just a clever Creative creation or fan construction, it's likely to come to light sooner rather than later.

The extremely popular video game Fortnite is no stranger to collaborations and crossovers with other pop culture properties. Just in the last several months, the game has had Batman, IT, and Borderlands events, just to name a few. So the fact that there now appears to be some sort of tease for a collaboration between Fortnite and the new Are You Afraid of the Dark? is not terribly shocking.

What do you think? Is this a legit tease, or just something cooked up to look like one? Let me know in the comments!

Nickelodeon is preparing for the return of The Midnight Society with the all-new Are You Afraid of the Dark? three-part limited series event. Based on the ‘90s kids’ cult classic, and reimagined for a new generation, part one of Are You Afraid of the Dark? will debut on Friday, Oct. 11, at 7:00 p.m. (ET/PT), with parts two and three to follow Oct. 18, and Oct. 25, respectively.

Across the three hour-long episodes, Are You Afraid of the Dark? will follow members of an entirely new Midnight Society, who tell a terrifying tale of the Carnival of Doom and its evil ringmaster Mr. Tophat, only to witness the shocking story come frightfully to life. In the just-released trailer, viewers meet the new members of the Midnight Society, get a glimpse at the uncertainty that awaits and prepare for an adventure beyond their wildest nightmares.

The new members of the Midnight Society are: Rachel, played by Lyliana Wray (Top Gun: Maverick); Gavin, played by Sam Ashe Arnold (Best.Worst.Weekend.Ever.); Akiko, played by Miya Cech (Rim of the World, Always Be My Maybe); Graham, played by Jeremy Taylor (IT: Chapter Two, Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween); and Louise, played by Tamara Smart (Artemis Fowl, The Worst Witch). The Carnival of Doom’s ringmaster, Mr. Tophat, is played by Rafael Casal (Blindspotting).

Are You Afraid of the Dark? is produced by ACE Entertainment (To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, The Perfect Date) with ACE founder Matt Kaplan and Spencer Berman serving as executive producers. The series is written by BenDavid Grabinski (Skiptrace, Happily) and directed by Dean Israelite (Power Rangers movie, Project Almanac), both of whom are also executive producers. Chris Foss is also an executive producer.

One of the Nickelodeon’s most iconic series from the ‘90s, the original Are You Afraid of the Dark? delivered riveting stories of horror to young audiences, all from a kid’s perspective, which was relatively uncommon at the time. Are You Afraid of the Dark? is owned by DHX and was created by D.J. MacHale and Ned Kandel, who are also executive producers on the project.

Fortnite is currently available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, Mac, and most mobile devices.
