Just in time for Halloween.

From the collaborative efforts of Disney Branded Television and Sony Pictures Television, this 10-part series promises to be a haunting experience.

We are delighted to bring this spooky new series to audiences everywhere in a big way on Disney+ and Hulu, which we hope will not only captivate new audiences with its elevated thrills and chills but also lifelong fans nostalgic for the stories that are a staple of their generation.”

The “Goosebumps” series promises to plunge viewers into a world of mystery and suspense as it follows a group of five high schoolers on a shadowy and twisted journey. Their mission?
