With a new live-action Goosebumps TV series recently announced, now comes word on another R.L. Stine property being adapted.
From Lookout Entertainment and Chernin Entertainment, Stine’s The Babysitter book series is being adapted for TV, although details are being kept at a minimum at this early juncture.
Lookout Entertainment is working with Chernin Entertainment on a new series based on R.L. Stine's "The Babysitter" book series. Check it out! https://t.co/C7Nk6rrxCH— LookoutEntertainment (@LookoutEnt) July 23, 2020
The Babysitter is a four-book series that began back in 1989. In that original novel, 16-year-old Jenny Jeffers is a babysitter who finds herself being terrorized by a crazed killer. The second book would continue that tale, while the third offering made Jenny the killer, and the fourth conjured up the spirit of dead children.
To many, The Babysitter is seen as one of the books that first put R.L. Stine on the map in a major way – with that original 1989 tale released three years before Stine put out his first Goosebumps tale.
Expect more on The Babysitter as we get it.
