It was announced today that Haters Back Off has been renewed for a second season on Netflix. The comedy premiered back in October and was notable because it marked the first time a scripted series was created by a YouTube personality.
The half-hour show follows the life of Miranda Sings, a quirky oddball seeking fame who is played by YouTube personality Colleen Ballinger. The character originated on YouTube in 2008 and has amassed quite a large following over the years, with its channel currently sitting at over 7 million subscribers on the online video platform.
Netflix has obviously been pleased with the show's performance, which has no doubt been bolstered by the character's already-existing fan base. The streaming service has ordered another eight episodes of Haters Back Off, matching its first-season total, for a return in 2017.
