The COVID-19 pandemic has seen a resurgence of drive-in theaters in some parts of the country. Meanwhile, on the horror streaming network Shudder, The Last Drive-in With Joe Bob Briggs continues to show that the drive-in will never die. The show will have its third season air in 2021.
Along with another season of Joe Bob and Darcy, Shudder also announced a summer sleepover double feature. The episode was taped pre quarantine. The show will feature horror filmmaker Adam Green. Shudder is also planning more The Last Drive In specials for later this year.
“I can’t believe it’s only been two years since that first marathon called The Last Drive-In,” said host Joe Bob Briggs. “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.”
