Just Beyond will be a horror-comedy anthology series. A writer's room is being assembled with the television adaptation set to arrive on the streaming service in fall 2021.

Stine is best known for penning popular children's book series Goosebumps. Grahame-Smith has also wrote the screenplays for Dark Shadows, The Lego Batman Movie and The Saint.

"I grew up watching Twilight Zone reruns and the original Amazing Stories with my parents. 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," Grahame-Smith said in a statement.

"R.L. Stine has been a part of millions of childhoods, and Disney+ has already proven itself as a place that knowns how to make high-quality shows for the whole family. I couldn't be more excited to be working with both of them," he continued.
