Aftershows have become pretty popular. It’s a great way for networks or streaming services to keep you with them after your show ends. With Netflix’s Stranger Things being so eagerly anticipated, the streaming company is capitalizing on its popularity.Beyond Stranger Things is a new aftershow for the series hosted by Jim Rash.
All seven episodes of the series will premiere today, October 27th, along with the second season of Stranger Things. This is not the first popular series to come paired with an aftershow special; The Walking Dead and Star Trek: Discovery both have them. But since the Stranger Things episodes release all at once, rather than week-by-week, this is an interesting choice by Netflix. It will be interesting to see how many people watch it considering it doesn’t technically come on right after each episode like the network TV model.
This show does have the star power to attract viewers, and the aftershow will have interviews with the creators, producers and cast of the show. Will people switch over to watch Beyond Stranger Things between binging episodes? We will see. If it works, I’m sure Netflix will add this for more shows in the near future as well.
