Fans of the long running off-the-wall & absurd parody of a children's educational television series, Cameron's Playhouse will be pleased to know about the show's return for an all new 8th Season. Throughout March, Cameron has been working very hard on filming all the 10 brand new episodes.
For those that don't know what the show is all about, Cameron's Playhouse began in 2008 as an online webseries that went from the early stages of Youtube, straight to DVD, and then in the later years, to Bluray and now also in 4K devices. Before things like Facebook and Twitter were immensley popular, Cameron's Playhouse viewers engaged throughout the show on internet Forum websites. The show even predates Twitch which runs on a similar formula but in a live format. However, Cameron's Playhouse isn't live. It was made for TV.
Fans loved the show's irrelevent and nonsensical humor that will certainly get the show cancel-cultured if it was on a commercial network. Says Cameron, "I think the internet back then was a much different place than it is now. Back then everybody loved the meme stuff. People would send in fan mail to me all the time. They liked seeing my responses of their letters on the show". The show also includes many other activities such as Story Time, (where Cameron reads a book), Art To The Extreme (which is a short art-related segment), 'TV Time' (where Cameron watches TV because he's got nothing better to do for the rest of the episode), of course 'Cameron's Fan Mail' (where Cameron reads & responds to audiences' mail letters) and more. There are many different characters mostly played by him & his other friends on the show.
Last year was a busy year for the show as the 6th movie 'Cameron's Playhouse 6: The Vengeance Of Voodoo Doctor' was made. This was determined to be the final main film of the series. Could Season 8 be the final main season of the show? What made him decide to do another season?
"It all came down to being bombarded by a couple of online trolls and the odd stalker, who kept on going on about what they thought of this, what they thought of that, how they thought I shouldn't make shows anymore, etc". Says Cameron. "So I decided to do a new series due to this inspiration, and it was the 15th anniversary of the show anyway." The last season was recorded & released in 2020, and it was also an enjoyable one as well.

For Season 8, however, this is the first season of the show to be filmed entirely in native 4K. "We've filmed a few of the most recent movies in 4K before, but never the series in full." exclaims Cameron. "Season 7 was filmed in 1080p 60fps. Season 8 is filmed in true 4K 60fps. My phone is a Google Pixel 4a which has 4K filming support. I've been filming the last few movies on it. This time it's the series turn."
