'Are You Afraid of the Dark' Season 3 Sneak Peek Hints at the Creepy History of Ghost Island

The season premieres July 30.

To celebrate the premiere of Are You Afraid of the Dark?: Ghost Island, the upcoming third season of Nickelodeon's beloved anthology horror series based on the series of the same name from the 90s, Nickelodeon has released a spooktacular sneak peek from the all-new season, which you can check out below, courtesy of Collider!

The new 2-minute exclusive clip from the series' premiere episode "The Tale of Room 13/The Tale of the Teen Spirit" is cut into two distinct parts: one being during the day and the other in the dead of night. The clip sees the members of the Midnight Society, Kayla (Telci Huynh), Leo (Luca Padova), Summer (Dior Goodjohn), and Ferris (Chance Hurstfield) sitting around an unlit bonfire on the beach of the titular Ghost Island. After a brief discussion, the group meets Max (Conor Sherry), who joins the group around the campfire as the clip transitions into night. They asked why the island is called Ghost Island, to which Max says it is because of Room 13, a room that the manager had told the other kids didn't exist.

A second sneak peek can be watched on Dread Central!

Additional casting for the series includes Julian Curtis as Stanley Crane, who is the hotel manager at the island resort. This third season of the rebooted Are You Afraid of the Dark? was renewed back in March 2022 and is following up on its second season Are You Afraid of the Dark?: Curse of the Shadows, which went on to see the series receive a Writers Guild Award and nominations from the Directors Guild Awards and Artios Awards. The original Are You Afraid of the Dark? aired from 1992 to 1996, with the last two seasons running from 1999-2000.
