BEYOND Debuts on Freeform With a 2 Hour Premiere Event
Hey Shadowhunters fans. Looking for a new companion show? You could do worse than check out new supernatural drama Beyond, debuting on Freeform in January.
The new series is a one-hour drama about Holden, a young man who wakes up from a coma after 12 years and discovers new abilities that propel him into the middle of a dangerous conspiracy.
Now Holden must try and figure out what happened to him during those 12 years; how to survive a world that changed while he was gone; and answer the question, why did this happen to him?
Freeform tells us that in a Network first, you’ll be able to binge the entire first season (all ten episodes) via digital platforms (the Freeform App, Freeform.com, On Demand and Hulu) from January 2 – which, mark your calendars – is also the day the premiere airs on terrestrial TV.
Thank you Freeform for understanding our need to binge a great new show!
Speaking at New York Comic Con earlier this year, Tom Ascheim, Freeform president, commented “The premiere of Beyond marks an important milestone in the history of Freeform, nearly a year since our rebrand. One of the promises we made to our audience at the time was to create content they love and to make that content easily accessible. Beyond helps us live up to both promises. In the same way we modernized our brand, we are modernizing how we bring our shows to our audience. Beyond is our first, and definitely not our last, ‘binge-from-the-start’ show.”
Beyond officially premieres on Freeform on January 2, 2017, at 9:00 p.m. PST, with a two-hour premiere.
The series stars Burkely Duffield (House of Anubis) as Holden Matthews, Romy Rosemont (Glee) as Diane Matthews, Michael McGrady (American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson) as Tom Matthews, Jonathan Whitesell (Once Upon a Time) as Luke Matthews, Dilan Gwyn (Da Vinci’s Demons) as Willa and Jeff Pierre (Shameless) as Jeff McArdle.
