Fringe did it. The Flash has been doing it. And it’s the premise of Counterpart: Going into a parallel dimension. In the Starz sci-fi series, Oscar-winner J.K. Simmons plays a government bureaucrat who stumbles upon a secret — his agency has discovered a pathway between the dimensions. On top of the sci-fi aspect, it’s also a spy thriller, which Simmons says makes it different from anything else you’ve seen in the spy genre.
Counterpart returns to Starz with new episodes on January 28.
