Disney is continuing to build up its intellectual properties, as Variety has now unveiled that the House of Mouse picked up a live-action Goosebumps TV series. R.L. Stine‘s iconic book franchise will be brought to the streaming service in the form of a ten-episode season. Nick Stoller and Rob Letterman are attached as executive producers and writers for the series.
Letterman is also going to direct the first episode – fitting as he directed the 2015 film – but there is no word who will tackle the rest of the season. Original Film Neal H. Moritz is joining the production as an executive producer, which is noteworthy due to his involvement with the 2015 and 2018 live-action films based on the popular children franchise.
With its, it’s the second live-action Goosebumps show to ever air, as the original ran for four seasons for two years starting in 1996. It went on to tell different stories based on the book series in 74 episodes. It’s also not the first Stine adaptation heading to the streaming service, as Just Beyond also premiered back in October based on his graphic novels.
