For all of you guys out there that just can’t get enough of Netflix’s hit original series “Stranger Things” no worries. The streaming giant now has an original aftershow coming out the same day as “Stranger Things 2”.
THR reports the new series is called “Beyond Stranger Things” and it has a (fittingly) strange release pattern in that – due to potential spoilers – you will only be able to view this new aftershow once you have finished the final episode of season 2. Thus saving you from yourself.
This show marks Netflix’s first foray into after-show programming.
Guests are set to include Ross and Matt Duffer, Shawn Levy, Millie Bobby Brown, Sean Astin, Linnea Berthelsen, Natalia Dyer, Brett Gelman, David Harbour, Randy Havens, Charlie Heaton, Joe Keery, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Dacre Montgomery, Paul Reiser, Noah Schnapp, Sadie Sink and Finn Wolfhard.
The new original series is produced by Embassy Row (“Talking Dead”) with Michael Davies and Jen Kelly Patton serving as executive producers. Patrick Doody will be supervising producer.
“Beyond Stranger Things” will debut on Netflix Oct 27, the same day “Stranger Things 2” hits.
Rundown via THR:
Hosted by writer, producer, actor and “super fan” Jim Rash, the show after the show promises to explore the inspiration for the series, tell behind-the-scenes stories and analyze every aspect of the second season, including answering all burning questions.
All seven episodes will be available to watch on Oct 27, the same day Stranger Things 2 is released on the streaming platform. However, viewers will be advised not to start watching Beyond Stranger Things until after they have finished watching the entire new season of the drama, as there will no doubt be major spoilers along the way. Unlike the genre’s other aftershows, which air installments following each episodes, Netflix’s iteration will automatically play after viewers complete the final episode of Stranger Things 2.
