TikTok queen Charli D’Amelio, big sis Dixie, and their parents have scored a reality show of their very own, which fans can only watch on Hulu starting next year.

Charli D’Amelio is TikTok’s number-one content creator. Boasting nearly 100 million followers on the viral video app, she has become an icon for Generation Z — but she’s not staying on the smartphone screen, for long.

In fact, Charli and her family have landed their very own reality television series, which was picked up exclusively by Hulu and is being produced by The Intellectual Property Corporation.

Hulu itself announced the news in a tweet on December 18, revealing the series’ name as simply, “The D’Amelio Show.”

What is the D’Amelio Show?

The D’Amelio show will be an eight-part docuseries that follows the family of internet superstars throughout their daily lives — more specifically, how they’re all handling their shockingly quick rise to stardom.

Where can you watch the D’Amelio Show?

Although there’s no set date just yet, the D’Amelio show is slated to kick off in 2021, and can only be viewed via Hulu.

“We are excited to be joining the Hulu family with a unique behind the scenes look into our life,” Marc D’Amelio said of the series. “…Many people create impressions of us based off of short content, a few minutes or even seconds. But now, we’re looking forward to sharing a side that you likely don’t get to see on our social channels.”

Considering all the madness that’s gone down in the past year alone, there’s no telling what all will be included in the show. Will it touch on the Charli and Chase drama from this summer? Will the Dixie and Griffin Johnson cheating scandal be cleared up?

So far, there’s no way of telling, but the D’Amelio’s aren’t the only TikTokers getting their own show; The Hype House is also getting a series, titled The Hype Life, produced by Wheelhouse Entertainment.

Thus far, reactions among fans have been divided: some can’t wait to get an inside look into the lives of their favorite TikTok stars, while others groan at getting a ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’ just for internet celebs.

Virtual streamer CodeMiko banned from Twitch for third time

Popular virtual streamer CodeMiko has been banned from Twitch for the third time, leaving some fans asking if this is a permanent ban. 

Over the years, Twitch streamers have come up with different ways to stand out from the crowd instead of just being world-class at certain games. Some have ramped up production in a major way and you can’t really take your eyes off it.

That includes VTubers and virtual streamers too, who use a digital avatar, editing, and even in some cases, a motion capture suit, to replace themselves on-screen and take on a different persona. 

In the last few weeks, Codemiko – a streamer who takes the VTuber concept to a whole new level – has been getting massive numbers on Twitch. However, she’s now been banned, yet again.

The ban came on January 19 after StreamerBans, who tracks all the different bans – temporary or permanent – on Twitch, tweeted that CodeMiko had been suspended by Twitch. 

The reason for the ban, or its length, is unknown but some fans were quick to speculate on the reason. Some suggested that it was because she used the word Simp – which was recently banned by Twitch. 

Others noted that in a previous stream, where she was interviewing fellow streamer PayMoneyWubby, Codemiko was incredibly drunk and could have been banned for that. Twitch does have some strict rules around drinking on stream, especially if you get out of hand and overindulge. 

There’s no way of confirming just why she’s banned, or how long the ban will last unless the streamer reveals it herself. Twitch typically does not comment on individual bans.

The only thing she’s posted regarding the ban was the ‘sadge’ meme.

This would be her third ban, previously being banned twice in September of 2020.

However, a streamer has to be banned three times within a three month period to rack up a permanent ban, so, she’ll probably be back at some point in the near future.
