Goosebumps Series 2000 is a spin-off of the original Goosebumps series by R. L. Stine. The cover design of the Series 2000 books was different from the original books, though the cover art was again by the same person, Tim Jacobus. There was no back tagline anymore, and the paragraphs at the back were excerpts from the book rather than a short summary of the story as the original books' back covers had. There was another difference with back covers too, as the "Reader Beware, You're In For A Scare!" of the original series was changed to "2000 Times The Scares!" and "Welcome to the new millennium of fear".

The main subject of the covers, the title, and R. L. Stine were printed in raised print, something only Goosebumps Horrorland has other than Series 2000.

Sequels to Goosebumps books[edit]

A few of the Series 2000 books are sequels to original Goosebumps books. Below is a list of those books:

  • Bride of the Living Dummy and Slappy's Nightmare (sequels to Night of the Living Dummy III)
  • Return to HorrorLand (sequel to One Day at HorrorLand)
  • Return to Ghost Camp (sequel to Ghost Camp)

Episodes in the TV series[edit]
