Freddie Wong’s ‘VGHS’ to Start Final Round in October

/ Sep 3, 2014

Video Game High School from RocketJump

“Video Game High School,” the live-action comedy series from Freddie Wong and Matt Arnold, will return for a third and final season on October 13.

Produced by Wong’s Rocket Jump Studios and Collective Digital Studio, the multi-channel network that Wong is partnered with, “Video Game High School” is set in an alternate universe where video-gamers are the biggest celebrities — akin to modern-day athletes. The show follows a group of students at the titular school, a prestigious academy for budding gaming stars.

Cast members includes Josh Blaylock in the lead role of Brian D and YouTube star Jimmy Wong as his best friend Ted, as well as Harley Morenstein of “Epic Meal Time” and “Epic Meal Empire” as the dean of VGHS. The first two seasons featured cameos from celebrities like Zachary Levi, Chris Hardwick, and Stan Lee, a trend that will continue with season three, which will feature Conan O’Brien among other cameos.

“Video Game High School” has been one of the most successful projects out of the YouTube ecosystem and online video in general, garnering more than 84 million views across two seasons.

Season three will be available on Wong’s RocketJump channel, which has nearly 7 million subscribers. Following the run on YouTube, the previous seasons have also been available on Netflix, which is likely to happen again with season three.

Here’s the trailer:
