Joe Bob Briggs is at it again. Shudder announced through BD that “The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs” with the horror host favorite is back this month for a weekly series.

John Irving Bloom will reprise his role as the redneck Texan with a penchant for hilarious assessments of horror films. The character first came to fruition in TNT’s MonsterVision in 1996. He quickly gained cult status; when Shudder brought him back for a 24-hour marathon last year, it was the talk of the town and even resulted in Shudder’s servers crashing due to overwhelming demand.

The series will run for nine episodes, streaming as double features every Friday at 9pm Eastern. The series will begin on March 29th.

Briggs said, “We’ve had The Last Drive-In 24-hour marathon, The Last Drive-In Thanksgiving marathon, and The Last Drive-In Christmas marathon, but the Shudder audience kept asking for some kind of programming that didn’t require sleep deprivation and controlled substances. The double features we chose for the weekly series range over five decades and include everything from classics to obscurities to foreign cult offerings, with a handful of guests who have agreed to play around with us in our Texas trailer park. I don’t want to say we got carried away with the possibilities here, but we kind of got carried away with the possibilities here.”
