Disney+ Greenlights Supernatural Series Based On R.L. Stine's 'Just Beyond'

Disney+ is getting a little spooky!

The streaming service just announced a new series based off of R.L. Stine‘s graphic novels “Just Beyond“, with 20th Century Fox Television, a division of Disney Television Studios.

Here’s a synopsis of the book: “Middle school feels like the worst place imaginable, but for Jess, Josh, and Marco, their school may actually be the worst place in this world…or any other! After a chance encounter with a deadly creature stalking the school halls, these three unsuspecting students are whisked away to a horrifying realm beyond the school boiler room where they must unravel a terrifying mystery. Can they save the kids they find there and escape themselves, or will they be forever trapped Just Beyond?”

“I grew up watching Twilight Zone reruns and the original Amazing Stories with my parents,” Seth Grahame-Smith, writer and executive producer, said in a statement. “I’ve always wanted to make a genre anthology series that families could enjoy together, and do it in a way that delivered for kids and adults alike. R.L. Stine has been a part of millions of childhoods, and Disney+ has already proven itself as a place that knows how to make high-quality shows for the whole family. I couldn’t be more excited to be working with both of them.”

“Back in the day, we had a Goosebumps HorrorLand attraction at Walt Disney World,” R.L. Stine added. “It was one of the thrills of my life. Now I’m thrilled to be back with Disney for the TV series based on my graphic novels. Writing “Just Beyond” for BOOM! Studios has been a joy from the beginning, and I’m so happy to have the wonderful screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith bring the series to life on Disney+. How lucky can I be?”

Just Beyond is expected to premiere in fall 2021.
