Psychological spookiness that's OK for most tweens.

Amazing yet scary

I think it is really good and has a lot of good role models. There are some jump scares and some things that may surprise you but I kinda wished that the 2nd and 3rd episode were more scary and some boys and girls kiss. The first one is the best so far and I am watching the 4th one now with my 6 year old son and 11 year old daughter. I would say it is good but definitely suggest for higher audiences and you don't have to watch the episodes in order. Each episode is about a new person and place and a different universe. There is no swearing but there is words such as brat and witch. The 4th episode (which me and my kids are watching now) has some scary monsters and the main character is a girl who see's this horrifying poster where ever she goes. This is defiantly and scary yet fun family tv show on Disney plus that I recommend.

Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (7 ):

Fans of R.L. Stine's books will love this compellingly creepy series. There are enough scares to be thrilling to tweens, but they (likely) won't continue haunting them after they turn off the show. Each episode in the anthology is more like a mini-movie with fully developed worlds and characters. Tweens will be intereseted in this glimpse into high school life. While there's the added layer of the Twilight Zone-esque weirdness, the characters are also navigating real problems all kids face growing up. Tweens who like being a little spooked will enjoy Just Beyond, and the well-done stories make this a great family viewing candidate too.
