Today, YouTube unveiled the all-star cast for the second season of ESCAPE THE NIGHT, the popular murder mystery series starring Joey Graceffa. Graceffa will return as “The Savant,” and will be joined by Tyler Oakley 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.” ESCAPE THE NIGHT transports 10 YouTube creators into a whodunit murder mystery where they’ll form alliances, solve clues, and brace themselves for terrifying new surprises in every episode. The 12-episode second season will be produced by Brian Graden Media and Graceffa and will debut on YouTube Red on June 22, 2017.
In the first season, Graceffa brought together an ensemble of top YouTube stars for a killer dinner party that transported them to a 1920s-era gothic mansion. This season, nine new dinner guests will receive an exclusive invitation, only to discover that all is not what it seems. They find themselves transported into a Victorian-era masquerade ball where they must solve a mystery to survive.
The premiere episode from the first season of ESCAPE THE NIGHT has generated over 11.3 million views and over 1.1 billion social impressions, to date. The series won the 2016 Streamy Award for Best Ensemble Cast.
“The first season of ‘Escape The Night’ proved to be wildly popular on YouTube Red, as audiences rooted for their favorite creators and embraced the spirit of this exciting reality adventure series,” said Susanne Daniels, Global Head of Original Content, YouTube. “We are thrilled to be working with Joey Graceffa, Brian Graden, and a brand new cast of dynamic YouTube stars to deliver another season full of fun, mystery and suspense.”
“Viewers were in constant suspense right up until last year’s finale,“ said ESCAPE THE NIGHT star and executive producer Joey Graceffa. “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.”
