Escape the Night is a YouTube Red post-modern metafictional murder mystery reality competition webseries hosted by Joey Graceffa that debuted on June 22, 2016. The second season was released on June 22, 2017. The third season premiered on June 21, 2018. The fourth season premiered on July 11, 2019, making it the longest running series on YouTube Premium. The series is produced by Brian Graden Media.


The series follows The Savant (Joey Graceffa) as he finds himself in an estate in a past era, where he invites a number of guests to a party which requires them to act and dress as various personas from that era. Once there, they’re cutoff from the outside world, challenged to survive the night and escape the estate.  To do this, the guests team up with him to participate in challenges and Escape room puzzles, competing with each other to escape from the historical era by solving and completing them. At the end of each episode, two guests are voted into a challenge to compete against each other where the losing guest is eliminated via a fictional ″death″ until one or more guests ultimately win and are sent back to the modern world.


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, YouTube Premium had declined to renew for a fifth season. Rumors suggest that the show may return on a different network.
