Halloween season has arrived, and there’s no better way to embrace the spooky spirit than by delving into the eerie and thrilling world of “Goosebumps.”
A revival of the beloved “Goosebumps” series by R.L. Stine is set to debut this weekend, available for streaming on Disney+, Hulu, and Freeform. This spine-tingling premiere is part of Disney+’s “Hallowstream” and Hulu’s “Huluween” festivities, promising a hair-raising experience for fans of all ages.
R.L. Stine’s “Goosebumps” franchise stands as one of the best-selling book series in literary history, boasting over 400 million copies in circulation, translated into 32 different languages. A true pop culture phenomenon, “Goosebumps” has been the wellspring of television shows and movies for generations.

Goosebumps Reimagined: A Dark and Twisted Journey of Mystery and Suspense
While the original series introduced new characters in each episode, the reboot takes a different approach. This fresh interpretation follows a group of five high school students who decide to don their detective hats to investigate a teenager’s mysterious death from three decades prior.
The new series is poised to immerse viewers in a world of enigma and suspense, according to Disney+. The group of five high schoolers embarks on a shadowy and twisted journey to uncover the circumstances surrounding the tragic demise of a teen named Harold Biddle. Simultaneously, they will unravel the dark secrets hidden within their parents’ past.
This latest television adaptation draws inspiration from five of the most beloved middle-grade books, including “Say Cheese and Die!,” “The Haunted Mask,” “The Cuckoo Clock of Doom,” “Go Eat Worms!,” and “Night of the Living Dummy,” as disclosed by Disney+.
