What is the 2020 Episode Filter on TikTok?

A filter has been going viral on TikTok this year called the 2020 Episode Filter, and it’s proving to remain really popular months after it was created.

The filter chooses a random episode and time from a TV show, which is said to be a prediction of your life.

Then, users are finding that particular scene and uploading their results to TikTok, turning it into a sort of challenge.

How to get the TikTok 2020 Episode Filter

The filter isn’t actually on TikTok, it’s on Instagram – and here’s how to find it.

  • Open Instagram and click on ‘Your Story’ at the top of your homepage to add an Instagram Story.
  • Slide through all the filters at the bottom and click on the magnifying glass at the end.
  • Click on another magnifying glass in the top right-hand corner to bring up the search bar, and search ‘akikokoga’.
  • Find the filter called ‘2020’ and press ‘add to favourites’.
  • Now film your video, save it to your camera roll and upload it to TikTok.
