This is just what October needed–a brand-new series based on stories from acclaimed genre author R.L. Stine.
Just Beyond–an original eight-episode anthology set to debut on Disney+ Oct. 13–draws its inspiration from the Stine YA horror/comedy graphic novels of the same name, as reported by comicbook.com, and the striking poster on this page affords a colorful glimpse into the wonders about to unfold.
The original graphic novels are written by Stine–of Goosebumps and Fear Street fame–and illustrated by Kelly and Nichole Matthews.
The TV series–announced last year here in Horror News Network–is scripted by Seth Grahame-Smith, whose credits include Dark Shadows and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. “I grew up watching Twilight Zone reruns and the original Amazing Stories,” he said, “and I’ve always wanted to make an anthology series that families could enjoy together.”
The show–produced by 20th Century Fox (part of Disney Television Studios)–is led by executive producers Grahame-Smith, Stine, David Katzenberg, Stephen Christy and Ross Richie.
The cast of Just Beyond includes Henry Thomas (of E.T., the Extra–Terrestrial fame) and an impressive ensemble cast of young actors–Christine Ko, Malcolm Barrett, Sally Pressman, Cedric Joe, Riki Lindhome, Tim Heidecker, Gabriel Bateman, Cyrus Arnold, Arjun Athalye, Jack Gore, Logan Gray, Elisha Henig, Rachel Marsh, Jy Prishkulnik, Megan Stott and Izabela Vidovic.
