Escape the Night is an American reality television series created, hosted, produced, and owned by Joey Graceffa that was first broadcast on June 22, 2016, on YouTube Premium.[1][2] The series follows fantasy plots based on horror and murder mystery aesthetics. The fourth season was released on July 11, 2019.[3] The series was produced by Brian Graden Media.[4] As of September 4, 2019, 40 episodes of Escape the Night have aired, including seven specials, concluding the fourth season. It was the longest-running series on YouTube Premium until 2020, when Graceffa announced that he would be selling the series to a different network for a fifth season.[5][6]

Premise

The series follows The Savant (Joey Graceffa) as he finds himself in an estate in a past era, where he invites a number of guests to a party and requires them to act and dress as various personas from that era. Once there, they are isolated from the outside world, and tasked with surviving the night and escaping the estate. To achieve this, the guests team up with him to participate in challenges and escape room puzzles, competing with each other to escape from the historical era by solving and completing the challenges. At the end of each episode, two guests are voted into a challenge to compete against each other, where the losing guest is eliminated via a fictional death until one or more guests ultimately win and are sent back to the modern world.

Production

Conception

When YouTube Premium launched in October 2015, Graceffa's show was one of ten exclusive original series scheduled to debut in 2016, and was still an untitled project.[7][8] The series was set to be produced by Brian Graden Media, and began filming in a house near Valencia, California.[4][9] Graceffa said that the show was inspired by an episode of television show Lizzie McGuire themed around a murder mystery, and was also closely related to the 1985 film Clue.[10][9] Graden called the show "a hybrid between scripted mystery and reality elimination show".[4]

Distribution

The series debuted on June 22, 2016, with two episodes going live.[11] The premiere episode had 11.3 million views and 1.1 billion social impressions.[12] The show was renewed for a second season in October 2016, and was scheduled to debut on June 22, 2017.[13][14] In May 2018, Graceffa confirmed there would be a third season, which debuted on June 21, 2018.[15][16] The fourth season, which made it the longest running original series on YouTube, premiered on July 11, 2019.[3] The first episode of season 4 premiered simultaneously at VidCon during a panel conference with Graceffa, and was also available to watch for free on YouTube.[17]

Escape the Night: Escape Room

The Escape the Night: Escape Room was an immersive escape room centered around the fourth season of Escape the Night. The escape room was a limited event exclusively in Beverly Hills, California, that ran from August 9, 2019, to August 27, 2019. The escape room had multiple rooms to venture through, with surprise guest appearances from Graceffa, Jack O'Connor (Mortimer), and Eva Augustina Sinotte (The Sorceress).[18]

Board game

In June 2020, Graceffa announced via vlog that due to COVID-19's impact on Hollywood and television, Season 5 was postponed indefinitely, but teased a new interactive fan version. Fans of the show signed up to an email list in order to receive updates about the new project.[19][20] In July 2020, a Kickstarter campaign was started to fund a board game based on the series; its goal of $30,000 was achieved in just 3 hours. It was formally announced the next day.[21]

End on YouTube Premium, possible fifth season, and potential spinoff

In June 2020, it was confirmed that YouTube Premium had declined to renew the show for a fifth season, possibly canceling its longest running original series.[5][6] In June 2021, Graceffa stated in a vlog that YouTube will no longer fund and distribute further seasons of the series, but has stated that he has full ownership of the intellectual property, and is currently pitching the series for another season under a different network, and is also developing a potential spinoff.[22]

  1. ^ Matt and Tim were sent into a challenge where Matt lost. Joey stated on his reaction channel that he believes Matt purposefully failed the challenge as he wanted to leave the show. He also believes that if he had read the note in the prior episode, he would have killed himself instead of Sierra for the same reasons.
  2. ^ Joey and Lele were sent into a challenge, and had to choose which guest would die. They chose to betray GloZell. The death of GloZell was scripted because she had a broken leg, and there was to be a lot of running in the following episode.
  • Note: There was an extra guest at the start of the season in the form of "The Renegade", played by Shane Dawson. Within the storyline, Shane knew about the evil of the house as a member of the "Society Against Evil" and informed Sarah the maid that he knew what she was doing. As a result, the evil saw Shane as a threat and poisoned him. In order to save him, the other guests had to complete a puzzle task within a time limit. They failed, resulting in his death. Interviews with production staff confirmed that even if the group had completed the task within the time limit, Shane would instead have been killed by Marvin the groundskeeper when the car exploded later in the episode.[23]

  2. ^ Joey tries to get the Crown of Oblivion from the Sorceress, but the Sorceress was alive and stabbed Joey until he died. The Sorceress died after that and Tyler & Andrea were the only ones who survived.
  3. ^ Joey and Andrea were sent into a challenge, and they had to choose which guest would die. They chose Tana. In Joey Graceffa's reacting to Season 2 Deaths, he revealed that him and Andrea wanted to pick Gabbie but due to the drama on set they didn't want to risk her making a scandel out of it.
  4. ^ Liza was put into the Gingerbread womans challenge in which she lost however in a scripted event they tricked the Gingerbread woman and saved her life. Due to Liza having to leave set for a movie, the Sorceress appeared and Liza was killed.
  5. ^ Gabbie and Tana were sent into a challenge to rescue either Jesse or DeStorm. They found out that the winner would get to choose whom to save. Gabbie won and chose to save DeStorm, and Jesse was killed. Jesse was supposed to be revived later in the series, but he ended up choosing to stay dead permanently.

  2. ^ Since only Safiya and Rosanna escape Willie's Funhouse, the two have to vote two of the people that didn't make it out into the challenge. Safiya votes for Nikita, while Rosanna votes for Manny. Nikita wins, but in a shocking turn of events, both Nikita and Manny leave the Funhouse and find out that the person that voted for the winner of the challenge will end up being killed. While this is happening, Willie goes into the Divine Lounge where the others are, and kills Safiya with a hook.
