I wasn’t born yet when the first Goosebumps novel written by R. L. Stine hit the shelves. And I also wasn’t around when the live-action Goosebumps television series premiered on the small screen in the early 1990s.
My older brother was a big fan of the books growing up. So naturally, I started reading them too once I stumbled upon them nestled in our apartment. Instantly, I fell in love with the books (as well as the television series) all the same. So, you can imagine my excitement when I heard that a new Goosebumps show was headed our way.
Today, the first five episodes from the new Goosebumps series have premiered on Disney+ and Hulu. And for old and new fans alike, the anticipation for the modern-day take on the classic novels has never been higher.
Based on the beloved franchise, the new Goosebumps spinoff follows a group of five high school students embarking on a quest to investigate the mysterious death of a teenager whose ghost has come back for revenge after passing away 30 years ago.
