“We're delighted to bring Joe Bob, Darcy and the rest of The Last Drive-In Team back for another season of crazy movies, live tweeting, and the most entertaining commentary on TV,” said Shudder General Manager Craig Engler. “We'll also have more special guests and themed holiday episodes, because as Joe Bob says, the drive-in never dies.”

On The Last Drive-In, Briggs, the world’s foremost drive-in movie critic hosts eclectic horror movie double features, talking about their merits, histories and significance to genre cinema. The fourth season which concludes on July 1, 2022, features new, in-depth interviews with special guests Charles Band, Larry Fessenden, and The Adams Family, among others.

After the special turned out to be an unprecedented hit, Shudder brought The Last Drive-In back as a weekly series and for multiple holiday specials.

The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs is produced by Matt Manjourides and Justin Martell and directed by Austin Jennings.
