Get To Know Are You Afraid of The Dark’s Arjun Athalye With 10 Fun Facts (Exclusive)

JJJ is getting to know the cast of Are You Afraid of the Dark?: Curse of the Shadows ahead of the premiere on Friday (February 12).

Leading up to the new season, over the next few days, we’re bringing you all the info on who plays who, and learning more about the actors – starting with Arjun Athalye!

Arjun stars as Jai, the voice of reason within the Midnight Society. He considers himself a hyper-intelligent 40 year-old, even though he really just repeats sentence fragments he hears adults say. Jai’s a believer in logic and science, which sometimes makes it hard for him to fully embrace his imagination.

Curse of the Shadows follows an all-new Midnight Society group of kids who learn of the terrifying curse cast over their small seaside town, and are haunted by a mysterious creature known as the Shadowman. In the just-released trailer, viewers are introduced to the new Midnight Society members and get a glimpse at the horrors that await them in the shadows. Watch the trailer here.

Are You Afraid of the Dark? season two premieres THIS Friday (February 12) at 8pm ET/PT on Nickelodeon!
