Scare PewDiePie: Multiplayer (lost season of YouTube Red series; 2017)
Scare PewDiePie: Multiplayer or Scare PewDiePie 2 is the second season to the 2016 YouTube Red Series Scare PewDiePie created by Felix Kjellberg (known more as PewDiePie) and featured Seán McLoughlin as the villain of the show. The season was produced following the success of the first season. The series' second season was filmed from November 1st to November 22nd in Los Angeles. The season was ready for a release March 9th release but was cancelled on February 15th, 2017, by YouTube after Kjellberg was accused of making anti-semitic jokes. On March 10th, 2017, he tweeted about releasing the season's first episode if the now-deleted tweet obtained 100,000 retweets. On March 14th, 2017, he uploaded a video of the "episode" after reaching the goal, revealing it to be a hoax as Kjellberg revealed that he can't leak it due to legal threats from YouTube. He did, however, express interest in releasing the season if he was given the chance from YouTube or if he could acquire the series from YouTube. Ultimately, Felix was unable to gain the rights to the episodes from YouTube, who still has the rights to the series to this day.
Other than YouTube, the only other people known to have Season 2 is PewDiePie, his editor JayLaw, and Maker Studios. However, neither of them can leak it without facing legal threats from YouTube.
Despite attempts over the years by fans, YouTube seems very unintrested to get the second season released or to sell the rights.
As of 2023, none of the episodes from the second season has ever leaked.
The Scare PewDiePie Season 2 trailers feature YouTuber JackSepticEye and PewDiePie fighting and PewDiePie riding a motorcycle in a separate scene. The behind the scenes footage of it is in a PewDiePie video titled "well..." and an edited version of it in JayLaw's video titled "YouTube in 8-bit - The Retro Fighting Game!"
