Tiktok’s Viral “Hype House” Will Be Getting Their Own Netflix Series

Last Thursday, Netflix announced that Tiktok’s “Hype House”, a collection of the platform’s most famous teens and young adults, would be receiving their own show. The series will follow each member as they tackle love, fame, and the next stages of their lives. Kouvr Annon, Nikita Dragun, Sienna Mae Gomez, Chase Hudson, Larri Merritt, Thomas Petrou, Alex Warren, and Jack Wright – 8 teens with a combined 125 million followers on the app – will star on the show. However, three of the Hype House’s most popular personalities, Addison Rae, Charli D’Amelio, and Dixie D’Amelio, will not be featured in the series. 

While the show is supposed to be lighthearted, innocent fun, many Netflix users don’t believe the Hype House deserves a series after their recent, controversial actions (partying and not following covid-19 safety guidelines and posting racist, homophobic, and sexist content). Lots of users are also furious that popular Netflix shows such as “The Society”, “I am Not Okay With This”, and “Anne with an E” have been cancelled, only to be followed up with a Hype House reality show.

“You cancel so many good shows after just 1 season and instead give us reality show trash like this?” One twitter user complained. “Literally nobody asked for this.” 

Alyssa Morales, a junior on Chandler Online Academy, was also not thrilled about the upcoming series.

“I am not excited at all for the new Netflix hype house show,” She told the Husky Paw Print. “I think that Netflix cancelling shows to make this was a bad decision because there are actual bad shows on that platform that don’t need more seasons but they choose to cancel valid shows. Make it make sense.” 

In response to all the backlash surrounding the series, Alex Warren (one of the many teens on the show) told Bustle magazine, “We put our lives these last few months into this show for you to judge, critique, and fall in love with our personalities. I’m not expecting everyone to love it, but I am expecting everyone to have fun watching.” 


A specific release date for the show has yet to be announced, but if you are a fan of the Hype House or an angry Netflix user looking to hate-watch, the show is expected to come out sometime shortly.
