Currently all main series related episodes/movies are classified as Specials, and stacking episode numbers, which can be very confusing. And difficult to find what you are looking for.

For western TV shows, this is pretty rare I think. The examples I can think of:
Stranger Things - Beyond Stranger Things.
Spartacus - Gods of the Arena.
The Walking Dead - Torn Apart, Inside The Walking Dead, etc

However, varies series related to the main series are a common thing in Japanese Anime.
Common series(season) names like: OVA, ONA, OAD, Cinematic Release, Side Story, Pre-Sequel, Character Story, Alternative Story, etc, etc.
And of course each one of them has it's own episode numbering.

One example:
Attack on Titan - Chibi Theatre, OAD, Cinematic Release, Junior High, etc.

Thanks for your time.
