The classic and one of the most famous horror stories is coming back again with a great news. Now it has been officially announced that Goosebumps live-action TV series will be landed on Disney+.
Goosebumps is originally a children’s horror fiction book series by American author R.L. Stine. It was first released in July 1992 until December 1997 by Scholastic Publishing. In total, Goosebumps has published 62 books.
This book series has sold over 400 million books worldwide, and has been translated into 32 languages. Goosebumps has become the second best-selling book series in history, just a little bit under Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling.
The books previously have been adapted to a TV series and movies as well. The stories in Goosebumps mostly follow some children who have to deal with scary situations which usually involve monsters, ghosts, or other supernatural elements.
The first Goosebumps live-action TV series was released between 1996 and 1998 on Nickelodeon. It released four seasons and has 74 episodes.
In the newest Goosebumps live-action TV series, Nick Stoller and Rob Letterman will serve as the writers and the executive producers. Nick Stoller will executively produce via Stoller Global Solutions, while Rob Letterman will direct the pilot episode as well.
Another executive producers include Neal H. Moritz and Pavun Shetty of Original Film, Conor Welch of Stoller Global Solutions, and Iole Lucchese and Caitlin Friedman of Scholastic Entertainment.
Neal H. Moritz was also the producer of the two recent Goosebumps movies (which was released back in 2015 and 2018), while Rob Letterman directed the first movie. The first and the second movie of Goosebumps collectively grossed more than US$250 million.
The new TV series will also be the second series from R.L. Stine which is ordered by Disney+. The network previously has adapted the TV series Just Beyond from R.L. Stine’s graphic novels, which the first season was premiered in October 2021 with eight episodes.
