Horror streaming service Shudder has revealed the release date and other details regarding its upcoming hosted movie series The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs. Last year Shudder released three standalone movie marathon specials under the same name, starting with the inaugural show which actually crashed the service for most viewers. The second special was on Thanksgiving and the third was a Christmas showing of the Phantasm series. The new show’s first season will consists of nine weekly double-feature episodes, with commentary and special guests.
Accompanying the announcement is the forty-two second official trailer featuring none other than Joe Bob Briggs:
While no specific movies or special guests have been announced, Joe Bob does mention special guests in the trailer, and later stated in a Facebook post that the series:
‘…includes classics to obscurities to foreign cult films, ranging over five decades.”
The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs premieres Friday, March 29th at 9:00pm Eastern, exclusively on Shudder.
Unfortunately, that’s all we know at this time, so stay tuned as more information becomes available.
