The original content series, which is designed to help up-and-coming Twitch streamers break through the clutter, get discovered and grow their audiences, brought in more than 10 million live views and 3 million VOD views over four episodes during its Season 1 debut in March of 2022.
Season 2 is set to premier on May 3, 2023 on various creator channels from One True King (OTK), one of the most watched content organizations on Twitch. ELEVATED Season 2 will find smaller streamers competing in a "gauntlet-style" format to discover the next generation of talented content creators.
