Hiatus Brain

What is hiatus brain?

When superfans' minds go wild during a hiatus

Superfans who can't stop thinking about their favorite TV show, comic, or other series during a hiatus may say they have hiatus brain. Hiatus brain drives fans to do "crazy" things while waiting for new content - such as creating their own fanfic, rewatching or rereading a series from the beginning, or diving deep into theories and speculation in fan forums.

For most fans, a long enough hiatus causes their hiatus brain to eventually disappear, as they move on to watching or reading a different (likely just as addictive) series. For some extremely dedicated fans, though, hiatus brain has only one cure: the new content the fan craves.
