Hype House Season 1 Release Date, Cast, And More Information

It seems like Netflix doesn't know how to slow down when it comes to creating original shows and movies. The popular streaming service is always rolling out new titles each month, and one of the newest reality shows added to the mix is "Hype House." The show centers on a group of popular social media stars who have large followings on video-sharing service TikTok. The whole premise of the show is that cameras will follow these young stars' every move inside a multimillion-dollar mansion in Los Angeles.

Though these creators are wildly open on social media about their lives, there's always more to learn about people, which is what "Hype House" will do for this group of people. Cameras went inside the mansion over the span of a few months to get every last piece of drama, content creation, friendship, love, and anything else you want to see from these people. Before the series debuts, here's everything you need to know.

When will Hype House premiere?

Netflix announced in April 2021 that a show featuring some of social media's most popular creators would be coming at some point. The streamer wrote on Twitter, "Kouvr Annon, Nikita Dragun, Sienna Mae Gomez, Chase Hudson, Larri Merritt, Thomas Petrou, Alex Warren, and Jack Wright — a.k.a Hype House — will star in a new unscripted series that will reveal a side of themselves (and their relationships) that we rarely see!"

It wasn't until the end of 2021 that a release date was announced. The Hype House Instagram account shared on December 15 that the show was finally ready for release. Alongside a picture of the cast, it was announced that Season 1 of "Hype House" would drop on Netflix on January 7. Netflix's description of the show states that these episodes will give viewers an even more in-depth look at the creators' lives in the multimillion-dollar home in Los Angeles.

The show's April announcement garnered an interesting reaction on the Internet. According to BGR, much of the backlash received was attached to previous actions of Hype House members. Tony Lopez was accused of sexual assault and soliciting photos from a minor, while the whole Hype House hosted superspreader events during the peak of COVID-19 in 2020. And Insider reported that influencers even declined to disclose their positive results to others who had been around them.

Who's in the cast of Hype House Season 1?

Though Netflix originally announced a cast for "Hype House," it has since changed. Those appearing in Season 1 of the show include Kouvr Annon, Nikita Dragun, Chase Hudson, Larray Merritt, Thomas Petrou, Alex Warren, Vinnie Hacker, per the streamer's Instagram on December 15. That being said, plenty of TikTok creators have come and gone from the Hype House since its creation in 2019. Hudson, who also goes by his social media handle Lil Huddy, had the original idea for creating a house for TikTokers, per The New York Times, after being inspired by other creator houses popping up in the Los Angeles area. He's remained an active participant in the group ever since.

Other popular TikTokers have been in and out of the house or affiliated with it, including Addison Rae and Charli D'Amelio, according to The New York Times. And though Sienna Gomez and Jack Wright were originally slated to appear in the Netflix show, per the April 2021 tweet, the two — who previously dated — were embroiled in a sexual assault allegation in summer 2021, per Insider. It's possible that this is the reason neither were included in Netflix's promotion for the upcoming season of the show.

More information on Hype House Season 1

While we don't know a whole lot about what will be included in Season 1 of "Hype House," Netflix has promised that the series will show the TikTokers figuring out how to "navigate love, fame, and friendship while creating content and living together." For a group of people who are incredibly open on social media about their lives, it's almost amazing to think there's more we could learn about them from a reality show. But the trailer gives some insight about the drama we can expect, as well as what actually goes on in the Hype House.

Though these creators are largely open with their current lives on social media, some of their fans, especially new fans, may not know where they came from. "Hype House" is a chance for viewers to learn about their lives outside of a 60-second TikTok video or what you see on various social media platforms. And yes, the show does look like it will be full of drama, but like the trailer says, the Hype House is like a fraternity house where everyone has millions of followers and dollars, so there's bound to be arguing, betrayal, and who knows what else. But you can catch it all when it drops on Netflix on January 7.
