NYCC 2016: Freeform’s ‘Beyond’ Promises Supernatural Drama

Freeform’s upcoming new supernatural show Beyond hit New York Comic Con this year with producers Tim Kring (Heroes, Heroes Reborn) and David Eick (Battlestar Galactica), show creator Adam Nussdorf, and star Burkely Duffield (House of Anubis).

Duffield plays Holden, a young man who wakes up from a 12 year coma to find that the world has changed but also that he now possess supernatural abilities that he can’t control. He doesn’t quite know what is going on or who to trust but sinister forces appear to be after him.

The Workprint caught up with Duffield and Nussdorf at NYCC to talk about their show and what fans can look forward to in this new supernatural drama.

Watch our full interviews:

“Beyond” is a one-hour drama about Holden, 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. Now Holden must try and figure out what happened to him during those 12 years; how to survive a world that changed while he was gone; and answer the question, why did this happen to him?

“Beyond” stars Burkely Duffield (“House of Anubis”) as Holden Matthews, Romy Rosemont (“Glee”) as Diane Matthews, Michael McGrady (“American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson”) as Tom Matthews, Jonathan Whitesell (“Once Upon a Time”) as Luke Matthews, Dilan Gwyn (“Da Vinci’s Demons”) as Willa and Jeff Pierre (“Shameless”) as Jeff McArdle.

From Imperative Entertainment and Automatik, “Beyond” is created, written and executive produced by Adam Nussdorf. Tim Kring, David Eick, Steven Adelson, Zak Kadison, Justin Levy and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones will serve as executive producers.


Beyond premieres on Freeform in 2017.
