The third season of “7 vs. Wild” brings with it several changes: the episodes initially appear exclusively on Freevee and the launch on YouTube only begins a month later. Until then, there will be no reaction clips from top streamers, which is causing a lot of frustration among fans.

After all, in parallel with the publication on Freevee, behind-the-scenes videos appear on YouTube. These extras were very well received in seasons one and two. But now there is also criticism of the production at this point. The “7 vs. Wild” now responded with a comment on YouTube.

“7 vs. Wild”: Fans unhappy with additional content

The third behind-the-scenes video is about the first viewing of the place. Among other things, it is revealed that Canada was already on the shortlist for the second season. In the end they decided on Panama, because there the landscape contrast with Sweden, where the first season took place, was greater.

Aside from that, YouTube highlights celebrities who were asked to appear in season three but declined. The team received a basket from MontanaBlack, as well as Joko and Klaas, among others.

The problem from the perspective of some fans: This entire lead-up is already known to many of those who follow the program and what surrounds it. Consequently, the added value of the episode is questioned. Numerous people on Reddit are also pointing out that the behind-the-scenes series for season three has been overall very disappointing so far. A fan complains:

“At one point I wondered when new and interesting things would start, and bang, the episode was already over.”

The “7 vs. Wild” explains YouTube’s strategy

What especially draws the attention of fans is that the chronology of the YouTube clips does not even reach the moment when the teams were released. But there is a special reason for this, which is related to the new release strategy of new episodes on Freevee.

This means spoilers should be avoided for those who don’t want to watch season three until it starts on YouTube in late November. “We can reassure you: the behind the scenes will not give you any spoilers, even if you don’t start the series on YouTube until November 29,” it said on the series’ official Instagram channel in early November. .

The negative consequence, however, is that many fans have so far dismissed the behind-the-scenes material as boring and complained that there are hardly any new insights and insights into the show. Another person on Reddit says:

“This will completely drain BTS. So they should have waited to release it and made it coincide with the launch of YouTube. So it’s obvious they had to drag it out because the episodes don’t end up on YouTube a week later.”

Ultimately, it comes down to criticism of the Amazon deal. With a comment on YouTube, the production tries to appease fans with another clarification. He says: “BTS follows the YouTube timeline. This is often forgotten. We listen to your criticisms. But sometimes you just have to wait.“So there’s still hope that the behind-the-scenes videos will be a lot more exciting when the season starts on YouTube.

Last week, Joko and Klaas again won 15 minutes of air time in the fight against their local and judicial broadcaster ProSieben. Since they had not used the minutes they had previously earned, ProSieben was kind enough to allow them to add the times and made another concession: instead of giving them a single airtime on Wednesday nights, The presenters were allowed to go on air every night for a few minutes at 8:15 p.m. for a whole week.
