Blue Mountain State: The Rise of Thadland is a 2016 American comedy film, based on the Spike (now Paramount Network) series Blue Mountain State. Directed by Lev L. Spiro, the film stars Darin Brooks, Alan Ritchson and Chris Romano. Picking up where season 3 of the series left off, the plot follows Alex Moran, now in his senior year, who must throw an epic party for Thad, who has recently been drafted into the NFL, in an effort to get him to buy the Goat House from the new Dean.
Following the cancellation of the series in early 2012, rumors of a reboot of feature-length film circulated. As the show gained a cult following, members of the cast, including Ed Marinaro and Page Kennedy, hinted at a possible project. On April 8, 2014, the film was officially announced, with the creators launching a Kickstarter to raise funds; filming took place in North Carolina in late-2014. The film was released on February 2, 2016 by Lionsgate.
