Video Game High School is Back in Session
Season 2 is on the way, plus an interview with the creators!
Let’s face it: high school sucks. There aren’t adorable host clubs. We’re not piloting mechs after school. Our teacher isn’t an adorable boy wizard. It just sucks. Thankfully, we can live vicariously through the web series, Video Game High School. The action comedy series takes place in a not so distant future where gamers are the celebrities and if you have what it takes, you can earn your place at the elite academy VGHS to train with the best. As protagonist Brian D. finds out though, it’s still a typical high school filled with bullies and teenage drama. Looks like it’s not so different after all.
Released on Netflix as a feature length film, the original series became an instant cult classic and with the Kickstarter-funded Season 2 now fully backed and in post production, we think these guys are here to stay. The show’s co-creators, Freddie Wong and Matthew Arnold, are jazzed to bring us more of the same action and oddball humor that you loved in the first season, but with more surprises, plot twists and character arcs than you can shake a Wiimote at.
To take you behind the scenes, our pals at Nerdist caught up with Freddie and Matthew to discuss all things to do with the upcoming season, their favorite games and what it means to be a part of the ever changing new media machine. Did you dig it? Let us know on Facebook and Twitter!
