Last year, Shudder and legendary horror host Joe Bob Briggs damn near broke the internet with “The Last Drive-In With Joe Bob Briggs,“ a 24-hour marathon that was so popular it subsequently spawned “Joe Bob’s Dinners of Death” on Thanksgiving night and then “A Very Joe Bob Christmas” in December. What’s next? A weekly series!
Proving once again that “the drive-in will never die,” Joe Bob Briggs is back with an all-new “The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs” series exclusively on Shudder, AMC Networks’ premium streaming service for horror, thrillers, and the supernatural. The nine-episode original series will consist of weekly double features streaming live every Friday night at 9:00 p.m ET/ 6:00 p.m. PT, beginning March 29 and concluding on Friday, May 24, Memorial Day Weekend. Episodes will also be made available on demand at a later time.
The Last Drive-In series marks Briggs’ return to weekly on-screen appearances for the first time since ending his run on TNT’s MonsterVision in 2000.
“We’ve had The Last Drive-In 24-hour marathon, The Last Drive-In Thanksgiving marathon, and The Last Drive-In Christmas marathon, but the Shudder audience kept asking for some kind of programming that didn’t require sleep deprivation and controlled substances,” said Briggs. “The double features we chose for the weekly series range over five decades and include everything from classics to obscurities to foreign cult offerings, with a handful of guests who have agreed to play around with us in our Texas trailer park. I don’t want to say we got carried away with the possibilities here, but we kind of got carried away with the possibilities here.”
