YouTube Originals said Friday that a new one-off documentary special, Justin Bieber: Next Chapter, will launch on the platform October 30. The 30-minute special follows the success of YouTube’s 10-episode original docuseries Justin Bieber: Seasons, the biggest YouTube Originals debut to date with more than 32 million views in its first seven days.
The newly announced special follows Bieber — whose just released two big singles in “Holy” with Chance the Rapper and “Lonely” with Benny Blanco, and just performed them on SNL — for an exclusive look at his life today following the docuseries, which debuted in January and chronicled his life during the making of his latest album of the same name.
Changes, his fifth studio album, debuted at No. 1 on the U.S. album chart when it was released in February.
