4-2: Creating Bonus Content (SF)

Posted on: by Michael Tringe

Key Points

Bonus Content

  • Bonus content rewards audiences for watching and gives them more
  • Simultaneous stories can be a place for your secondary characters to have their own deeper storylines
  • Epilogues can tie up loose threads or give audiences a glimpse into a new season
  • Bonus content can be completely different from your existing show, giving you a chance to experiment with styles and forms


Write bonus content that is different from your main series, but still ties back thematically.
