2020 is the year of Justin Bieber, and it hasn’t even started yet.
Just a week after announcing his upcoming single “Yummy” and a slew of tour dates, the crooner had more in store by revealing on Tuesday (Dec. 31) that YouTube Originals will premiere his first-ever docuseries, Justin Bieber: Seasons.
The series will bring Bieber back to YouTube, where he would upload covers and eventually skyrocket into superstardom. “When I was getting started, YouTube provided me a platform and a community where I could share music, experiences and moments with my fans,” Bieber said in a statement. “It feels great to partner with YouTube for this original documentary series. I want my fans to be part of this journey.”
“Justin Bieber’s courage as an artist is truly admirable and we are grateful he continues to share his inspiring story on YouTube,” Susanne Daniels, global head of original content for YouTube, mirrored in a statement. “As we aim to spotlight authentic struggles and real-life triumphs in our YouTube Originals, we are thrilled to add this special project to our 2020 slate.”
Justin Bieber: Seasons is directed and executive produced by OBB Pictures’ Michael D. Ratner, and photographer Joe Termini directed additional episodes. Bieber Time Films, SB Projects and OBB Pictures produced the documentary, while Justin Bieber will serve as an executive producer.
The 10-part docuseries premieres Monday (Jan. 27) at 12 p.m. ET/9 a.m. PT. Ahead of the release, fans can tune in to Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2020 on ABC after the ball drop tonight for a preview and a special message from Bieber himself.
