Freeform is taking a different approach for their upcoming new series, Beyond.
During the panel at 2016 New York Comic Con, the network announced that on premiere night — January 2nd at 9PM — they will release the entire first season on multiple digital platforms, including the Freeform app, Freeform.com, On Demand and Hulu.
“The premiere of Beyond marks an important milestone in the history of Freeform, nearly a year since our rebrand,” Tom Ascheim, Freeform president shared. “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 centers on Holden (Burkely Duffield), 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?
