Ayo Davis, president of Disney Branded Television, said, “Audiences everywhere fell in love with the series’ chills, thrills, heart, and humor, making it one of Disney Branded Television’s most-watched shows of last year.” Davis added, “We can’t wait to dive deeper into the brilliant mind of R.L.

Stine’s iconic world.” Pope added, “Like when you crack open a new book in the ‘Goosebumps’ series, we can’t wait to see how the writers flip the show on its head as we explore the series as an anthology. Thanks to Disney Branded Television, who remain steadfast partners throughout this wonderfully chilling journey.”
