Television Series[edit]

In February 2015, a promotional image for a new Mr. Midnight television series was posted on the Mr. Midnight Facebook page, it features the Mr. Midnight logo with a pair of eyes peeking out from behind the logo; the caption underneath the logo reads, "The hit book series that has scared thousands of kids across Asia is coming to television!" Any other details about the upcoming series are unknown, but the series will most likely be adaptations of the stories.

Movie[edit]

A movie titled Mr. Midnight the Movie: My Haunted Holiday[4] was planned and used to be in production but was cancelled as the producers thought the movie would not suit the book's style.
