Freeform viewers will be able to binge-watch the first season of the network’s new sci-fi series Beyond when it launches Jan. 2, Freeform officials said Friday during its New York Comic Con session.
The series, which follows 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, will launch all 10 of its episodes on the Freeform app as well as via Freeform.com, On Demand and Hulu, according to network officials.
“The premiere of Beyond marks an important milestone in the history of Freeform, nearly a year since our rebrand,” said Tom Ascheim, president of Freeform in a statement. “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.”
