Proving once again that “the drive-in will never die,” the legendary Joe Bob Briggs is back with an all-new “The Last Drive-In With Joe Bob Briggs” series exclusively on Shudder, which streams live every Friday night at 9pm from March 29 through May 24. The nine-episode original series will consist of weekly double features, and we’ve got key art today.
Check it out below.
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,” Briggs recently told us. “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.”
He added, “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.”
