Netflix has signed on for another season of telling naysayers to hightail it, renewing “Haters Back Off!” for a second season. Season 2 will consist of eight episodes and debut sometime in 2017 on the streaming service.
The series stars YouTube creator Miranda Sings and is based on the character created by Colleen Ballinger. “Haters Back Off!” delves into the oddball family life of Sings, a confident, totally untalented star on the rise, who continues to fail upward by the power of her belief that she was born famous — it’s just that no one knows it yet. Netflix picked the project up straight to series in January of 2016, the first scripted series order for a YouTube star. The show dropped its eight-episode first season on the service on Oct. 14.
The project was developed for TV by Ballinger, Chris Ballinger, Perry Rein, and Gigi McCreery, who all exec produce, along with The Firm’s Jeff Kwatinetz and Josh Barry. Rein and McCreery serve as co-showrunners.
The renewal comes less than two weeks before the debut of another Netflix series revolving around a big digital name: Vine star Cameron Dallas’ “Chasing Cameron” will premiere on Dec. 27.
