Jake Paul, Juanpa Zurita Battle Zombies in YouTube Red’s ‘Fight of the Living Dead: Paradise Calls’

A new batch of YouTube stars — including internet bad boy Jake Paul and popular comedian Juanpa Zurita — will be taking on the undead in the next season of zombie-survival competition series “Fight of the Living Dead” on YouTube Red.

The YouTube-creator cast of “Fight of the Living Dead: Paradise Calls” also includes Hannah Stocking, Wengie, Anwar Jibawi, De’arra Taylor and Ken Walker, Karina Garcia, Eric Ochoa, Anthony Trujillo and Miles Jai.

The eight-episode season will debut exclusively on YouTube Red, the $10-per-month subscription service, on Oct. 31, 2017. The series is produced by Alpine Labs and Revolver Picture Co.

In what’s the third iteration of the “Fight of the Living Dead” format, the YouTubers are trapped in what is promised to be an “even more epic location,” yet to be revealed — but the rules of the game remain the same: “Don’t. Get. Bit.” The crew, as they battle all-new flesh-eating humanoids, must decide between forming an alliance with a rebel organization or following the potentially nefarious directives of the underground government organization known as “CONOP.”

YouTube Red’s premiere of “Fight of the Living Dead: Experiment 88,” which debuted in August 2016, generated over 10 million views. The two winners of that show — in which contestants had to escape from an abandoned hospital — were Rahat Hossain (MagicofRahat) and JC Caylen.

The first season of “Fight of the Living Dead” from Alpine Labs and Revolver Picture Co. was released in the spring of 2015 on Cinedigm’s CONtv and then BlackBoxTV’s YouTube channel. The cast of the original show included Joey Graceffa, Justine Ezarik (iJustine), Meghan Camarena (Strawburry17), Iman Crosson (Alphacat), Olga Kay, Sam Pepper, and PrankvsPrank‘s Jesse Wellens and Jeana Smith.
