If you’re a Stranger Things superfan who just can’t get enough of the Netflix Original series, you’re in luck because a new aftershow is coming to the streaming service.

Next: Stranger Things 2 preview

Nine new episodes of Stranger Things hit Netflix at 3:00 a.m. EST and I know many die-hard fans will be staying up late tonight to watch. If you’re like me, you’ve been waiting for this day for months since the date was announced, and are anxiously awaiting devouring all nine episodes and completing your binge-watch so you can talk to all your friends, family and fellow Stranger Things fans about the latest chapter of the Emmy-winning series.

And now Netflix has given fans a place to do just that in the form of their very own Stranger Things aftershow that will be hosted by Jim Rash. You may know the actor from his time as Dean Pelton on Community. So now, Rash will be hosting Beyond Stranger Things which will air immediately after you watch Stranger Things 2 in its entirety. Technically speaking, it’s an after-season special. Just like trailers play at the end of various shows you finish on Netflix, the same will take place for Beyond Stranger Things and will be very similar in format to the other aftershows hosted by Chris Hardwick on AMC.

If you’ve seen Talking Dead, the popular aftershow that airs after episodes of The Walking Dead, guests from the show and members of the cast and crew grace the set and sit down for interviews, questions from fans and sometimes give a little insight into the process behind the scenes. In fact, it’ll be produced by the same people that brought the AMC aftershow to life.

This is a must-watch for die-hard Stranger Things fans, and I hope this is something Netflix will consider doing for other popular shows like Orange is the New Black, House of Cards and the various Marvel shows.

You can watch the trailer for the aftershow below. And don’t worry, there won’t be any big spoilers.

The Duffer brothers are among the guests on the aftershow that will also see cast members Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Noah Schnapp, Sean Astin, Natalia Dyer, David Harbour, Charlie Heaton, Joe Keery, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Dacre Montgomery, Paul Reiser and Sadie Sink.

Noticeably absent from the list of guests is Winona Ryder. I hope she’ll be able to appear on one of the seven episodes of the aftershow because fans love her as Joyce and it would be great to hear from her about her experiences on the show.
