Goosebumps Series 2000 is the successor to the original Goosebumps series, written by R.L. Stine. It began in January 1998 with Cry of the Cat, one month after the final book in the original series was published. The series ended in January 2000 with Ghost in the Mirror. Twenty-five books were published in the series, with one unpublished. That being the twenty-sixth book, The Incredible Shrinking Fifth Grader. The series ended abruptly when R.L. Stine's contract with Scholastic ended, along with Give Yourself Goosebumps, and the planned Goosebumps Gold series.

The series is advertised as scarier than the original Goosebumps books, with the taglines boasting: 2000 times the scares!, and Welcome to the new millennium of fear!

The only Series 2000 books to be reprinted so far are Attack of the Graveyard Ghouls and The Haunted Car. Both books were rereleased on April 28, 2015, as part of the Classic Goosebumps series. Bride of the Living Dummy was rereleased on July 31, 2018, as part of the same series.

When the Series 2000 books were still in print, some of them were in included in four book boxed-sets.


The art and cover style for Series 2000 greatly differs from the original series. The uniform slime look was completely removed, and the Goosebumps logo was modified to be slightly slanted upwards. Unlike the original series covers where only the logo was raised, the entire Series 2000 covers are raised. The synopsis for the story on the back cover was also removed, replaced with a quote from the book itself.

All covers in the series were painted by Tim Jacobus, who also did work on the original series. However, the art style is different compared to the original series. The colors are darker and more mute, and the angles tend to be more dynamic. And in most cases, the cover art seems more grotesque than those of the original 62.
