PewDiePie and the ‘Walking Dead’ creators will join forces for YouTube Red series

YouTube gamer PewDiePie is known to freak out at terrifying video games, but a new series seeks to bring those scares to real life in 2016.

In Scare PewDiePie, part of the new YouTube Red Originals, YouTube’s most-popular creator, also known as Felix Kjellberg, will be dropped into real-life scary scenarios. Fans will be able to watch his reactions to the likes of killer clowns, insane asylums, and zombies. The series comes courtesy of Skybound Entertainment and the makers of The Walking Dead.  

There’s no release date set yet for the series, but it will only be available as part of the monthly subscription to YouTube Red, YouTube’s new ad-free service that will charge $9.99 a month. PewDiePie’s show is one of many from YouTube stars like Joey Graceffa and the Fine Brothers coming to the new platform.
