The New Goosebumps is an American anthology comedy-horror live-action TV series and a reboot of the original 1995 Goosebumps TV series, which in itself was based on the children's horror fiction novellas of the same name by Robert Lawrence "R.L." Stine. The reboot was created by the original author and TV show creator himself R.L. Stine, along with his wife, Jane Stine, and premiered its first season on June 2, 2017, and concluding on December 29, 2017.

The series has been renewed for two seasons, with the second season airing on March 9, 2018, with a five-episode premiere that starred some of the cast members from Andi Mack, and kickstarted a trend of airing episodes in "batches", as The CC (Cartoon Comedy) called it. The next batch of episodes premiered on May 25, 2018. The third batch aired on October 12, 2018, to promote Goosebumps: Haunted Halloween. It also starred some of the cast members from the film. The following batch is set for December 14, 2018, and the last batch of episodes aired on March 1, 2019.
