If you like things that go bump in the night, then this news will make you very happy.

On Monday (June 13), R.L. Stine, the author and creator of all-things Goosebumps, announced the title of the sequel to the 2015 movie based on his books, and teased whether Jack Black, who played Stine in the film, will be returning.


“Yes, there is a script for the Goosebumps movie sequel, and I am told that my evil twin, Jack Black, has signed on. More news to come!” Stine tweeted.

Black portrayed R.L. Stine in the last Goosebumps film, which followed a teenage boy (played by Dylan Minnette), who accidentally unleashed all of the storybook characters from Stine’s books.

Stine also revealed that the sequel will focus on a different set of stories.


“The Goosebumps movie sequel is tentatively called Goosebumps Horrorland and is slated for September, 2018,” the horror book author wrote. “Watch out for Slappy!”

Both Black and Slappy — the creepy ventriloquist doll — will be starring in the upcoming Goosebumps: Horrorland film, and we’re already getting scared  just thinking about all of the potential creepy clown moments.

Goosebumps: Horrorland is set to hit theaters September 2018.
