HOLDEN WAKES UP FROM A 12-YEAR COMA AND STEPS INTO A NEW WORLD IN THE TWO-HOUR SERIES PREMIERE OF 'BEYOND' ON MONDAY, JANUARY 2, ON FREEFORM

In a Network First, All Ten Episodes of 'Beyond' Will Be Available Via Digital Platforms, Including the Freeform App, Freeform.com, On Demand and Hulu Simultaneous with the Two-Hour Television Premiere Event on Monday, January 2

Holden Matthews wakes up from a 12-year coma to discover he's now part of something he doesn't understand, on the two-hour series premiere of "Beyond," MONDAY, JANURY 2, 2017 (9:00-11:00 p.m. EST). Additionally, on January 2, the entire first season of "Beyond" will be available on multiple digital platforms, including the Freeform app, Freeform.com, On Demand and Hulu.

In the first hour, "Pilot," Holden Matthews miraculously wakes up from a devastating coma to the wonderment of his parents Tom and Diane and younger brother Luke. But the world has changed since Holden went to sleep, and he now has to navigate being an adult when all he remembers is being a child. At the same time, Holden is experiencing abilities and memories he can't explain, and a mysterious woman named Willa warns him not to trust those around him. When a sinister stranger attacks Holden and claims he knows about his new powers, Holden is faced with uncovering just what happened to him while he was in a coma.

In the second hour, "Tempus Fugit," Holden attempts to forget about his recent bizarre encounters and lead a "normal" life. Luke tries to help Holden acclimate to his new surroundings and brings him along to a college party. Holden hits it off with a friendly co-ed, but strange memories of Willa lead to disastrous consequences. Meanwhile, Diane and Tom try to bond with Holden as an adult.

"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?

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.
