Many horror-loving adults started off their interest in things that go bump in the night by reading R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps as kids.
Some may remember that Stine also penned a graphic novel series in the early 2000s from BOOM! Studios called Just Beyond, about a deadly creature stalking middle school halls. Disney+ has ordered an eight-episode series of the same name, created by writer Seth Grahame-Smith and produced by 20th Century Fox Television.
Grahame-Smith has a history of combining horror and comedy, as the author of the novels Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, and screenwriter of Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows and The LEGO Batman Movie.
Disney+ will target the anthology series toward both kids and adults so that families can watch together. Just Beyond is expected to premiere in the fall of next year.
In case you missed it, R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps is also getting a TV reboot.
