The final episode of Netflix’s new series Haters Back Off paints quite the juxtaposed picture for nascent YouTube star Miranda Sings.
On the one hand, the woefully-untalented Miranda (played by series creator and star Colleen Ballinger) has finally achieved her dream: a viral video. But it came at the cost of everyone in her life, including her best friend Patrick, sister Emily, mother Bethany, and uncle Ken, who have all abandoned Miranda after she, to be sure, abandoned them first.
Netflix is taking a big swing into YouTube talent with, perhaps, YouTube’s least talented.
Miranda Sings, a character created by Colleen Ballinger eight years ago, is known for a handful of unfortunate idiosyncrasies: off-key tonal ignorance, brash overconfidence, lipstick like a Florida storm, and an unyielding desire to be a star. But that’s just the character, who bears no such talent equivalent to her creator.
No haters can stop Miranda Sings from pursuing her dreams in the new trailer for YouTube star Colleen Ballinger’s Netflix series, Haters Back Off.

Haters, you now have a scheduled time to back off.
Netflix’s new original series starring YouTube star Colleen Ballinger — better known as the dame of tone-deaf, Miranda Sings — has set its premiere date. EW has learned& Haters Back Off will debut its eight-episode first season on Oct. 14, launching globally on Netflix. (Ballinger also announced the date during her appearance at VidCon.)
Miranda sings, and now she acts.
Netflix has ordered Haters Back Off, an eight-episode series starring Colleen Ballinger-Evans, better known as her YouTube sensation alter ego: the talentless, tuneless, tone-deaf wannabe superstar, Miranda Sings.
