I loved making the Goosebumps movies and can’t wait to bring even more of R. L. Stine’s incredible stories to life through a high-end television series that speaks to both adults and kids alike,” Moritz told the site.

The new “Goosebumps” series will be based on the hugely popular book’s created by R.L. Stine that were published throughout the 1990’s. During that time, Stine’s stories were adapted into a TV show that aired for four seasons from 1995-98. The TV show much like the books, was an anthology of supernatural horror stories meant for children.

The upcoming series will be executive produced by Iole Lucchese, Scholastic Entertainment President and Chief Strategy Officer, along with Caitlin Friedman, Scholastic’s SVP & General Manager, Moritz and Originals Head of Television Pavun Shetty.

Goosebumps has been keeping kids and families on the edge of their seats for nearly 30 years and we’re very excited to partner with Sony Pictures Television and Neal H. Moritz to bring the enduring brand to life in a fresh new way for today’s generation,” Lucchese told Deadline. “From the world-famous book series to a full-scale licensing program and even live-action movies starring Jack Black, Goosebumps remains wildly popular and we look forward to presenting new adventures to give fans even more Goosebumps.

It’s still in early development so additional details will be revealed later down the road. Until then, check out the original “Goosebumps” TV series currently available on Netflix.
