R.L. Stine’s ‘Just Beyond’ To Become Disney+ Series. Disney+ is gearing up for new content and has ordered 8-episodes for a series based off RL. Stine’s Just Beyond novels according to Variety. The famed Goosebumps author is very excited about the project and is looking forward to working with Disney once again.
“Back in the day, we had a Goosebumps HorrorLand attraction at Walt Disney World,” said Stine. “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 Plus. How lucky can I be?”
The series is set to be penned by writer Seth Grahame-Smith (Dark Shadows, The LEGO Batman Movie, The Saint) for Disney+. The new series is expected to premiere on Disney+ in 2021 or 2022.
“I grew up watching ‘Twilight Zone’ reruns and the original ‘Amazing Stories’ with my parents,” said Grahame-Smith. “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 Plus 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.”
