The show is loosely based on after-shows like Talking Dead, which follows episodes from the The Walking Dead franchise. However, What Just Happened??! Is an aftershow for a non-existent show called The Flare.

    If the concept sounds confusing that’s probably because it is. At least based on the Twitter response from viewers. The meta aftershow doesn’t follow any existing aftershow formats, instead borrowing elements from various talk shows and aftershows.

    There was a field piece in which Fred unsuccessfully tried to interview Helen Mirren, who is a member of the non-existent cast. Fred wears Groucho Marx glasses and pretends to be delivering a pizza in hopes of meeting Helen but get stopped by security.

    The Twitter thread for #whatjusthappened was rather one-sided, with the vast majority of viewers disliking the show.
