PewDiePie is getting his very own reality-adventure series on YouTube. The show will air through the company’s new subscription service dubbed YouTube Red.

Called Scare PewDiePie, the series staring Felix Kjellber will take him through “terrifying real-life situations” inspired by his favorite video games.

The show will be part prank and part suspense-adventure as there are “hidden surprises around each corner.” Felix will go into every episode without knowing what he’s in for, apparently.

Scare PewDiePie will be produced by Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead franchise and CEO of Skybound Entertainment and will air early next year.

The show will be exclusive to YouTube Red which is a new sub-service providing users ad-free videos across devices, background play, and the ability to save videos to watch offline on mobile.

YouTube Red goes live next week and in 2016, members will get exclusive access to new shows and movies.
