‘Until Dawn’ is a French horror-comedy reality show that follows three famous comedians, as they spend their night on a haunted location, performing various tasks. The one who survives the night without losing their mind, wins.
Season 1 of the show has been creating a lot of buzz for its unique concept. If you’re among the ones who sit for hours watching funny horror pranks on YouTube, ‘Until Dawn’ is a perfect show for you. And in case you have already seen the show and wondering whether there will be a ‘Until Dawn’ season 2, here’s everything we know.
What is Until Dawn About?
Eerie crypts. Isolated towers. Super terrified comedians.
‘Until Dawn’ is what you get when you mix horror and goofy humor. Three comedians pull an all-nighter in some of the most haunted locations in France. Yeah, sounds pretty basic. What makes ‘Until Dawn’ different from paranormal reality shows like ‘Buzzfeed Unsolved: Supernatural,’ ‘Ghost Hunters,’ and ‘Ghost Adventures,’ is the fact that these comedians not only spend the night but also perform various tasks while they are stranded on location.
No matter how grave or scary the situation is, you can’t take the humor out of a humorist. Therefore, some of the comedians grab the opportunity and prank their fellow cast members by using tricks like turning on the faucets, wearing a cape and running through the hallway, deliberately screaming to scare others, etc. While facing their fears, the comedians toy with the fears of others.
The show sees the comedians using the Ouija Boards, communicating with the spirits, running up and down the hallways, screaming for their lives after watching things fall and move on their own.
The aim is to outlast others and survive the thrilling adventure… UNTIL DAWN! The one who is the most scared of them all faces a punishment at the end.
Until Dawn Cast: Who is in it?
Since it’s a reality TV show, all the characters play themselves.
‘Until Dawn’ features Comedian and TV host Monsieur Poulpe, whose notable works include ‘Nerdz,’ ‘Young Karaté Boy,’ and ‘Le Golden Show.’ Joining him are ‘Norman: The Walking Dead’ and ‘Mythomaniac’ fame Fadily Camara and ‘Access’ and ‘The Climb’ actor Ahmed Sylla.
