Netflix has certainly changed a lot of aspects of television for viewers. No longer do we wait on a week by week basis for each episode to drop. Nowadays, many fans binge whole seasons of television on nights and weekends.

While this is all great news for those who hate waiting, there is a little bit that’s lost along the way: the weekly water cooler discussion. While they can’t very well reclaim that aspect of the experience, they are doing the next best thing: creating an aftershow.

The streaming service announced that Beyond Stranger Things will also launch on the streaming service. The show, hosted by comedian and “super fan” Jim Rash, will discuss inspiration for the series, tell behind-the-scenes stories, and analyze every aspect of the second season, answering all the burning questions we’ll be left with.

Beyond Stranger Things will feature the series creators Matt and Ross Duffer, executive producer/director Shawn Levy, and much of the cast, including Sean Astin, Linnea Berthelsen, Millie Bobby Brown, Natalia Dyer, Brett Gelman, David Harbour, Randy Havens, Charlie Heaton, Joe Keery, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Dacre Montgomery, Paul Reiser, Noah Schnapp, Sadie Sink, and Finn Wolfhard.

All seven episodes of Beyond Stranger Things will launch tomorrow, alongside Stranger Things 2.

    I’ve never watching a single Aftershow before. I just didn’t see the appeal. But hell, I might as well give this one a shot!! That room full of people is basically exactly who I had hoped would be there! Jim Rash is a little unexpected, but a pleasant surprise.

      No one has ever said that about rash.

        I like him in Community, and the few other roles I’ve seem him in.
        But I’ve never seen him in an interview. I guess I have no idea what he’s like as just a person.

    Jim Rash looks like the poor mans Andy Dick. And just like Andy can act like the worlds biggest dick, Jim looks like an irritable rash on my ass that won’t go away.

      yeah, I can see that but I do think he does a better job handling his geeky Charlie Rose style Writer’s Room.

    Jim Rash? Dean Pelton? hmmmm, so long as they bring in cast a crew to avoid all the problems that After Thrones had which was trying to chase after Chris Hardwick’s charms. But it could backfire on themselves since the excitement isn’t the same thing as how the audience consumes it.
