Hype has been building around Freeform's newest series - Beyond - and for good reason. The new sci-fi thriller, set to release in January, looks to give a fresh take to the resurrection/super-human tale.
In this exclusive clip, from Beyond's second episode, the show offers a deeper look at the mysterious villain known as "The Man In The Yellow Jacket". The character can be seen in brief stints in many of the other Beyond trailers, but this new footage shows him for the first time at length.
In the clip, Yellow Jacket is headed into a meeting, and he's growing impatient with the security guard at the gate. This video shows the villain's respect for schedule, as well as his lack of patience for others.
The odd thing here is that the gate looks like it's leading deeper into the woods, begging viewers to wonder where the man could be heading. The scenery looks a lot like the woods where Holden disappears from 12 years prior.
Coming January 2nd, Beyond shares the story of 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 (Once Upon a Time in Wonderland). Tim Kring (Heroes), David Eick (Battlestar Galactica), Steven Adelson, Dan Friedkin, Justin Levy and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones will serve as executive producers
