Great news! Shudder has ordered a third season of its original series, The Last Drive-In With Jo Bob Briggs. This new season is set to air in 2021. Also announced was a special Summer Sleepover Double Feature that was taped before quarantine that will feature horror filmmaker Adam Green (Hatchet franchise) and other surprise guests. It will air August 14, 2020, at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT.
Host Joe Bob Briggs says this:
“I can’t believe it’s only been two years since that first marathon called The Last Drive-In. To have a third season, and continue to experience the love and encouragement that daily pours out of the Shudder community, is more than I could ever have hoped for. It’s been a very difficult year for all of us, but I hope we can continue to be a little oasis where people come to celebrate holidays and weekends and that special family feeling that only horror fans know.
The Last Drive-In continues to be a great success story for Shudder, trending in the Top 10 on Twitter during each live Friday night episode, and also driving tremendous on-demand viewing,’ said Shudder General Manager Craig Engler. ‘We’re delighted to bring Joe Bob back for a third season, and we’re also planning some incredibly fun specials that we’ll announce down the road.”
