The weekly show will air on the new network, The Hub. A two-parter already aired right before Halloween, called "Really You," about a possessed doll. Two new episodes will air on Christmas Day, "A Creature Was Stirring" and "The Dead Body."
A direct-to-DVD movie based on one of R. L. Stine's novels, The Haunted Hour: Don't Think About It, about a group of young people battling an evil force in a cursed book, was released in 2007. The new television series will follow the format of the hugely successful Goosebumps show, based on his novels, which aired in the 1990s and became a pop culture hit.
Can Stine capture lightning in a bottle twice and entertain a whole new generation of fans with spooky tales?
