After launching to substantial fanfare in October 2015, the visibility of Verizon’s mobile video platform go90 has notably waned in recent months. In February, the original video platform was folded into Oath, which was born of a merger between AOL and Yahoo — both of which are also owned by Verizon. And at the time, Oath CEO Tim Armstrong said he didn’t know how long the brand would remain in existence.
That said, go90 is bringing back standout series Mr. Student Body President for a third season on June 14 — and then a fourth season later this year. The New Form-produced high school drama — starring high-profile YouTube creators Arden Rose and Gabriel Conte as well as budding actors Camille Hyde (American Vandal) and Jeremy Shada (Adventure Time) — will premiere on both go90 and Tumblr.
In season three of the Streamy-winning series, Shada’s character teams with Rose’s after his presidency is threatened by a new high school power couple played by new cast members Spencer Watson and Camille Hyde. Unlike previous seasons, Verizon will make all of the episodes for seasons three and four available concurrently for binge viewing, said Steve Woolf, Verizon Digital Entertainment’s head of programming. “Mr. Student Body President takes a fun, modern approach to high school politics while still covering prominent youth issues,” he said.
Mr. Student Body President’s executive producers include Jack Ferry, Ryan Hunter, Melissa Schneider, and Kathleen Grace. Go90 is also home to The Young Turks’ new climate change docuseries True North, Kobe Bryant’s Oscar-winning short Dear Basketball, and Machinima’s Transformers trilogy.
