R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour was a Canadian/American original anthology horror-fantasy series, with episodes each half an hour long. The new show was produced by Front Street Pictures, The Hatchery, Incendo Films and Endemol, and premiered on The Hub, which overtook Discovery Kids on October 10, 2010. The show had a sneak peek premiere on October 29, 2010 and returned on December 25, 2010 with two Christmas specials, after which the show is now on weekly.[1] The series is based on The Haunting Hour: Don't Think About It Movie, and the books The Haunting Hour and Nightmare Hour anthology by R. L. Stine.[2] The show was renewed by The Hub for a second season as part of their 2011-2012 upfront. On February 22, 2012 R.L. Stine announced on his Twitter page that R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour had been renewed for a third season.[3]

On July 9, 2012, it was announced that R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour was one of four original series from The Hub that won the CINE Golden Eagle Award for high quality production and storytelling.[4]

On November 29 2014, Goodwill Toward Men was the series finale, a month later (December 8 2014), R.L Stine revealed on his Twitter that The Haunting Hour was dropped therefore cancelled by Discovery Family for unknown reasons.

Production

Prior to the broadcast of the series, series creator, R. L. Stine reported via Twitter saying The Haunting Hour was similar to his previous series Goosebumps. The series is filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Premise

Like the TV series Goosebumps, every episode features a different cast in a scary situation. However, the storylines are much darker than its aforementioned predecessor, and some episodes serve as very dark morality tales. There are, however, some episodes that have happy endings similar to most of the episodes of Are You Afraid of the Dark? which had this formula.
