Ahead of this Friday’s season finale, Shudder, AMC Networks’ premium streaming service for horror, thriller, and the supernatural have announced that they have renewed “The Last Drive-In With Joe Bob Briggs“!
“From our first marathon and subsequent specials in 2018, through this year’s series, Shudder members have been loud and clear: we can never have too much Joe Bob,” said Shudder General Manager Craig Engler. “We have read every tweet, every email, and every Facebook comment crying out for more. Message received. Joe Bob will be back.”
“It hasn’t even been a full year since the 24-hour Last Drive-In marathon, but since then I’ve made thousands of new friends and reconnected with thousands of old ones,” said Briggs. “The main reason I’m coming back to do another season is that this community of horror fans is greater than the sum of its parts, and it’s about something larger than horror. Don’t ask me what that thing is, but it’s a source of great joy to me.”
In each episode, Briggs presents a horror movie double feature, interrupting the films while critiquing them the way only he can. The show’s hashtag, #TheLastDriveIn trends on Twitter during each episode while fans experience the show together in real time. Season two will continue to supply horror fans with their weekly dose of Joe Bob Briggs and a great double feature.
Back in July, Shudder teamed up with Briggs for a 24-hour “Last Drive-In” Marathon marking Briggs’ retirement. But thanks to fans Joe Bob came back for two more specials followed by Shudder‘s announcement of the series, which premiered this past March.
The series is directed by Austin Jennings and produced by Justin Martell and Matt Manjourides.
Tune in for the season one finale this Friday (May 24th) at 9 pm EST!
