Today, Snap announced new and returning docuseries Snap Originals debuting later this year and in 2021!
From taking action on social and racial injustice, to the upcoming presidential election, and reflecting on one’s personal and professional journeys, these new and returning docuseries feature even more young, passionate and inspired creators, and speak to the issues most important to the Snapchat Generation.
Our new shows are a reflection of our understanding of our community - from the issues they care about to the talent they love. We are committed to ensuring our shows are reflective of our community’s diverse voices and passions, as well as Snap’s values. We believe in delivering shows that are not just informative but entertaining.
And Snap Originals continue to be a big hit - so far this year, Snap Originals have reached more than 75% of the U.S. Gen Z population.*
For marketers hoping to reach the Snapchat Generation in this exciting new content, we’re rolling out our ‘First Commercial’ offering to all advertisers in the US this month. This delivers the first non-skip six-second Commercial any Snapchatter sees in our curated content that day.
