If there is one thing that characterises transmedia storytelling, it is without any shadow of doubt, making way to great creative potential. Essentially, it opens a door to all the possibilities connected with the part the spectator-user plays within the narrative. Fiction television series have not overlooked this new way of telling a story, and there are several examples which can be found both in national and foreign TV channels. The series ‘El Ministerio del Tiempo’ (Spanish for ‘the Ministry of Time’) which is broadcast in Spanish national TV (RTVE), is a clear example of the creation of a transmedia TV series. It offers innovative storytelling elements within a TV fiction series. This article, using the methodological structure of a case study, aims to analyse the narrative structure of this production, where the followers have become the new main characters of this elaborate fictional universe.
