‘The Last Drive-In With Joe Bob Briggs’ Gets New Life

by Thomas Tuna

When is “the last drive-in” not the last? When Shudder orders up a fourth season of the popular horror movie gabfest with Joe Bob Briggs.

The third season of The Last DriveIn with Joe Bob Briggs wrapped up last week, and Shudder wasted little time re-upping the fan favorite for Season 4, as reported by comicbook.com. The new season won’t debut until sometime next year, but the usual assortment of holiday specials from Joe Bob are likely in the coming months.

Briggs said he is “extremely excited” about the new season, “especially since the family we’ve built up around the show keeps growing. In all my years of writing and performing, I’ve never felt so close to an audience. It’s like having friends in every town.”

Arguably the world’s foremost drive-in movie critic, Briggs hosts horror movie double features on his weekly show and discusses their relative merits and histories. In addition, interviews with such genre luminaries as Bruce Campbell, Eli Roth and Roger Corman highlight the episodes.

The series got its start back in July 2018, when Shudder and Briggs presented a 24-hour marathon that was meant to be a farewell from Briggs to his fans. But the show was a hit, the voice of the people was heard and the streamer had the good sense to bring Briggs back for a regular series and a string of holiday specials.

Shudder general manager Craig Engler praised the show, saying it is “unlike any other show on TV or streaming. Fans watch together for five hours every Friday night to see what movies Joe Bob will be showing and to hear what he and his special guests have to say about them.”
