The series follows a group of five high schoolers who unleash supernatural forces upon their town and must all work together – thanks to and in spite of their friendships, rivalries, and pasts with each other – in order to save it, learning much about their own parents’ teenage secrets in the process.

According to Variety:

Morris will appear in the role of Isaiah, described as “a popular star football player whose financial struggles at home, has him and his family banking on his athleticism to secure him a full ride to college.”

Briones will play Jane, who “typically has her head in a book, causing her classmates to think she is a snob but she is just laser focused on her writing and creating a life that is interesting enough for a memoir.”

The two join previously announced cast members Ana Yi Puig, Miles McKenna, and Will Price as well as Justin Long.

Neal H. Moritz and Pavun Shetty of Original Film, Conor Welch of Stoller Global Solutions, and Iole Lucchese and Caitlin Friedman of Scholastic Entertainment are also executive producing.

Sony Pictures Television Studios will produce.

Morris is best known for his role in the long-running BBC series EastEnders. Other credits include The Fades, One Night, and Children in Need.

Briones is best known for starring in the first two seasons of Star Trek: Picard at Paramount+. Other credit include Season 2 of American Crime Story at FX, and The Assassination of Gianni Versace.

“Goosebumps” is one of the best-selling book series of all time. More than 400 million English-language copies of the books are now in print, plus international editions in 32 languages. There are now more than 200 “Goosebumps” books in total.

This will mark the second live-action show on Disney+ based on R.L. Stine’s books. The streamer premiered the “Just Beyond” series last October which was adapted from Stine’s graphic novels.

The 10-episode series will begin filming in Vancouver this fall and winter.

A Disney+ release date for “Goosebumps” has not been announced yet.
