After announcing the third book in his Children Of Eden trilogy, Joey Graceffa has revealed that his YouTube murder mystery series — which will air exclusively on the video giant’s newly-revamped Premium subscription service — is also coming back for a third outing.
Escape The Night is a lightly scripted reality competition in which Graceffa and a group of fellow YouTube stars gather in a historical setting and compete in various puzzles and challenges. Both previous seasons premiered on June 22 — in 2016 and 2017, respectively — with guest stars such as Eva Gutowski, Shane Dawson, DeStorm Power, and Liza Koshy.
Escape The Night was one of the first original series YouTube announced when it launched its now-rebranded YouTube Red service back in 2015, and is one of only a handful of projects — including Foursome — to receive a third season order. While little is known about season three, a tweet (below) teased that it is set within a haunted carnival. A promo photo of Graceffa vending tickets also features nine initials carved into the booth, including C.B., J.C., M.M., and N.D.. Fans have surmised that they refer to this year’s cast, including Colleen Ballinger, James Charles, Manny MUA, and Nikita Dragun.
“Thank you all for the Escape The Night love so far,” Graceffa tweeted. “This is what I live for, and it’s just the beginning. Get ready for the wild ride about to start!”
