Episode 6: A Portal To Mystery will follow Jesse/Jessie and his team as they end up in a mysterious new world full of zombies. It's here, as they hole up in a haunted mansion, that they'll  meet the special guests. There's no info as to when the next two episodes will drop but, as usual for Telltale Games, Episode 6 will be available on PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, PC, and both the Android and Apple app stores on June 7. It'll be $4.99 to buy standalone or the Adventure Pass, which includes all three, will be $14.99.
