After teasing the release of his new docuseries for weeks, popular YouTuber Shane Dawson has finally dropped part one of the series centered on various conspiracy theories.

Shane Dawson skyrocketed towards the upper echelons of YouTube in 2018 with the release of a series of documentaries focused on different controversial members on Youtube.

After most recently covering Jake Paul for last Fall’s eight-part series, Dawson has moved on to a new topic altogether with his latest documentary.

While the inspiration for Dawson’s latest YouTube docuseries seemingly started with him thinking about aliens, things seem to have changed on the way.

Rather than looking at extraterrestrial beings, Dawson instead takes a deep dive into the many different conspiracy theories that have run rampant over the last few years.

With such a broad range of topics to cover, it’s no surprise that the video is quite hefty, clocking in at a whopping one hour and 44 minutes.

‘Conspiracy Series, Part 1’ starts out by focusing on a major conspiracy surrounding the recent wildfires that ravaged California before looking into other popular conspiracies dealing with the infamous DeepFakes and various bizarre iPhone glitches. 

As the title signifies, this isn’t the only video that Dawson has planned either, as he teases another five entries to the series where he’ll be “going even further down the rabbit hole.”

The initial scenes of the video were timestamped with a date of December 1, 2018, meaning he certainly has plenty of footage to work with.

If Dawson’s eight-part docuseries on Jake Paul – weighing in at almost seven hours over the course of eight episodes – is any indication, we could be in for a long journey with this latest ‘Conspiracy Series.’

Despite having plenty of teases for the next episode, Dawson has yet to give a release for part two of the series.
