Now that Shane Dawson's Jake Paul documentary is over, we've compiled a list of other YouTube documentaries you can binge.

YouTuber-turned-documentary maker Shane Dawson's series on fellow YouTuber Jake Paul has finally ended. It was a wild ride, and we learnt a lot about Jake, his life, and what a sociopath might or might not be. Now that it's over, there is a documentary shaped hole in hour lives, and we need to fill it. If you're also feeling this giant void, you're in the right place.

We have compiled a list of all the best YouTube documentaries you can watch now:

Real Stories' 'Rise of The Superstar Vloggers' documentary is for those of you looking for more YouTuber documentaries to watch. This one has the likes of Alfie Deyes, Joe Sugg, Jim Chapman and more. If for some reason, YouTube documentaries aren't your thing, Real Stories have a range of documentaries on their channel, so you can find pretty much anything and everything you've ever wanted to know about.

For you YouTube Premium people, Shaytards' 'Vlogumentary' is essential viewing. It's not just another YouTuber documentary, this is a documentary made by YouTubers about YouTubers. This documentary features Shay Carl, Grace Helbig, and more. If YouTuber documentaries are your jam, this is definitely the one for you.

If music documentaries are more your thing, here's one by True Geordie on the most controversial rapper around right now, Kanye West Ye. This documentary is pretty much a timeline of his whole life. It covers everything from his music, to him saying "George Bush doesn't care about black people", to his more recent 'slavery is a choice' comment. It's a great watch, and when you're done, True Geordie has also made a documentary on MMA star, Connor McGregor.

Another music documentary for you all! Casey Neistat's documentary on Canadian singer-songwriter, Shawn Mendes. It's a phenomenal documentary with some real insight into Shawn's life. It's wonderfully shot and edited and you just need to watch it, okay? oKAY!

If serial killers are your thing (and we don't blame you), there is a whole YouTube channel dedicated to documentaries about all your fave mass murderers! The documentaries are around 40 - 50 minutes each, and by the end of them, you'll know everything there is to know about these killers and their cases.

If the only thing that will satisfy your life is ANOTHER Shane Dawson documentary, you may be in luck. If you haven't seen them already, Shane has made documentaries about the famous Jeffree Star, and Tana Mongeau. Although he's taking some time off right now, I think we can probably be sure he'll come back with a new documentary.
