Transcript for Freeform's Two Sci-Fi Premieres
We are back with stars Burkley Duffield and Katherine Mcnamara. Katherine is in shadow hunters and Burkley is in the sci-fi show "Beyond" that is premiering tonight. Take a look. You spent 12 years in that place. It's a beautiful world filled with more wonder and magic than you'll see in a lifetime. It's also extremely dangerous. How would you know that? I was just telling you, Berkeley, my daughters are very excited about the season premiere tonight. You play holden Matthews, a different take on a traditional superhero. Tell us what the show is essentially about. As you said it revolves around my character, holden. He wakes up from a coma after 12 years and he really has to come to grips with this whole new world. He has a whole new set of friends he has to make. He doesn't recognize the world that he had known before he went into his coma. He also has abilities he's coming to know. It's so funny, I had the full synopsis from my 10-year-old who told me all about it last night. For the first time ever free form is going onto the binge watching band wagon and you can see the entire first season. What do you think about that? We're excited. I love being able to watch shows and immerse myself in a world of characters. To be able to give the fans -- if you love the show you can go on and watch as many episodes as you want. So I won't see my kids or get my TV back for at least a few days. Katherine, your show, "Shadow hunters" is premiering tonight as well. We have a preview. Take a look. It's my right to know. I was scared because you married a psychopath. My father. So you know. Mom, how could you? Oclaire, your father wasn't always like this. I deserve to know who I am. I know. I promise from now on, no more lies. Jumping right into the family. Shadow hunters was just nominated for a people's choice award so congratulations on that. Thank you. What do you think makes this show so popular? Everyone loves the supernatural and escaping into that world but something we dive into this season is the humanity of the characters. It's about these characters that are growing up and falling in love for the first time and dealing with all of these relatable issues in this setting. A supernatural setting. There's supposed to be some changes. Can you give us an idea of what we can expect? We've reworked the show in a sense in every aspect, from the look to the weapons to the brutality of the show. It has a bit more grit and it's grounded into reality. Everything is more -- the danger is more prevalent, the brutality is there and you get to see what makes these characters tick. Very cool. I'm intrigued, thank you so much for joining us. You can see both shadow hunters and beyond on free form tonight and start watching at 8:00 P.M. Eastern and never stop apparently.
