Live-action Goosebumps series in development

R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps novels have been some of the most terrifying and successful over the years and after adapting it for the small screen with the classic ’90s series and two hit films, Scholastic Entertainment is partnering with producer Neal H. Moritz for a new live-action series, according to Deadline.

The new series, which is being executive produced by Iole Lucchese, Scholastic Entertainment President and Chief Strategy Officer, will hail from the media division of the children’s book publisher and Sony Pictures TV, where Moritz’s Original Film banner is under a deal.

Goosebumps has been keeping kids and families on the edge of their seats for nearly 30 years and we’re very excited to partner with Sony Pictures Television and Neal H. Moritz to bring the enduring brand to life in a fresh new way for today’s generation,” Lucchese said in a statement. “From the world-famous book series to a full-scale licensing program and even live-action movies starring Jack Black, Goosebumps remains wildly popular and we look forward to presenting new adventures to give fans even more Goosebumps.

I loved making the Goosebumps movies and can’t wait to bring even more of R. L. Stine’s incredible stories to life through a high-end television series that speaks to both adults and kids alike,” said Moritz.

Alongside Lucchese, the series will be executive produced by Caitlin Friedman, Scholastic’s SVP & General Manager, Moritz and Original’s Head of Television Payun Shetty. Goosebumps is one of the best-selling book series of all time, having sold over 350 million English-language copies, plus international editions in 32 languages, with the original ’90s anthology series rated #1 for five consecutive seasons. The books went on to spawn two motion picture adaptations, both starring Jack Black (Jumanji: The Next Level), with the first scoring strong reviews from critics and audiences while the second received a more mixed reception, but were both financial hits.
