‘Escape The Night’ has just announced the cast for its second season, and, if you’ll pardon the very obvious pun, we’re dead excited.
The YouTube Red series sees some of your favourite YouTubers trapped in murder mystery. The drama unfolds over 12 episodes; but, as with all good whodunnits, not everyone will survive.
Some HUGE names have joined ‘Escape The Night’ season two.
In season one, show creator Joey Graceffa brought together powerhouse YouTubers such as Eva Gutowski, Oli White, Lele Pons, Timothy DeLaGhetto and GloZell Green for a killer 1920s dinner party.
This time, the action moves to the Victorian-era, and features a host of equally impressive names. As well as series creator Joey Graceffa returning as “The Savant,” Tyler Oakley will join as “The Thespian”; Liza Koshy as “The Explorer”; Lauren Riihimaki (LaurDIY) as “The Engineer”; Andrea Russett as “The Duchess”; Gabbie Hanna (The Gabbie Show) as “The Vaudevillian”; Jesse Wellens (PrankvsPrank) as “The Outlaw”; Alex Wassabi as “The Novelist”; Tana Mongeau as “The Saloon Girl”; and DeStorm Power as “The Railroad Tycoon.”
“Fans were in constant suspense right up until last year’s finale,” says Joey. “Nobody was safe, including me. This time, we have a new cast, we’re in a new era, and there’s a new evil lurking. I can’t wait for this season’s surprises to finally be revealed.”
The news comes just a few weeks after YouTube announced that a new wave of content led by global stars such as Ellen DeGeneres and Demi Lovato would be hosted on it’s regular, advertising-supported service, rather than YouTube Red – which some saw as a sign that YouTube was losing faith in the subscription service. Could the promise of your favourite YouTubers being killed off one by one be enough to give the platform a new lease of life?
Season 2 of Escape The Night hits YouTube Red on June 22.
