YouTuber Shane Dawson’s documentary series over controversial social media star Jake Paul is coming to an end, and its final episodes have been officially scheduled.
Dawson revealed the schedule in a Tweet on October 14, which stated that a two-part finale for the series would be released on Tuesday, October 16, and Thursday, October 18. This marks a major change from his original schedule of Monday/Wednesday/Friday (which he admittedly hasn’t been incredibly stringent with).
He also released a set of stills from the unreleased episodes, which appear to feature interviews with Alissa Violet and Jake Paul, as well a photo of Shane facetiming with Drama Alert host KEEMSTAR.

The series’ seventh and eighth episodes are set to showcase in-depth interviews with Jake Paul and his ex-girlfriend, Alissa Violet. While Paul admitted that discussing his turbulent relationship with Violet was the ‘most terrifying’ part of the project, he has since stated that he is open to hearing her side of the story, and wants the truth to be told - even if the consequences are major.
“I just want to squash everything and move forward,” he stated in a video response to the series. “...there’s two sides to every story, and I just want the truth out there."
While Dawson’s series has undergone massive scrutiny for its treatment of mental illness and use of the term 'sociopath,' it has also garnered wide praise for showing Jake Paul in a more relateable light.
The series continues to top YouTube’s trending videos with each release, and has even surpassed major Netflix shows in terms of viewership.
