However, when a new school dean threatens to clean up the BMS image by auctioning off the infamous Goat House, Alex, Sammy and the boys must find a way to convince Thad to get involved. Despite his new fortune and fame, there is one small requirement before Thad agrees to save the day: The Goat House must throw the biggest, most epic booze-and-sloot fest in BMS history. Welcome to Thadland!”
Blue Mountain State: The Rise of Thadland, which was directed be Lev L. Spiro, will star familiar faces of the franchise Darin Brooks, Alan Ritchson, and Chris Romano.
