Shudder, AMC Networks’ premium streaming service for horror, thriller, and the supernatural, announced today that it has renewed its hit original series The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs for a second season.

“From our first marathon and subsequent specials in 2018, through this year’s series, Shudder members have been loud and clear: we can never have too much Joe Bob,” said Shudder General Manager Craig Engler. “We have read every tweet, every email, and every Facebook comment crying out for more. Message received. Joe Bob will be back.”

“It hasn’t even been a full year since the 24-hour Last Drive-In marathon, but since then I’ve made thousands of new friends and reconnected with thousands of old ones,” said Briggs. “The main reason I’m coming back to do another season is that this community of horror fans is greater than the sum of its parts, and it’s about something larger than horror. Don’t ask me what that thing is, but it’s a source of great joy to me.”

In each episode, Briggs, the world’s foremost drive-in movie critic, presents an eclectic horror movie double feature, interrupting the films to expound upon their merits, histories and significance to genre cinema. Proving that an SVOD service can create appointment television, every episode of The Last Drive-In premieres on Shudder’s live feed before being made available on demand. The show’s hashtag, #TheLastDriveIn, has trended on Twitter during each of its first eight episodes as fans experience the show together in real time, and is expected to do so again during the season finale this Friday at 9pm ET/6pm PT. Season two will continue these live, weekly double features when the series returns, at a date to be announced.

Shudder and Briggs first teamed up in July 2018, for the 24-hour The Last Drive-In marathon, intended to be Briggs’ final farewell to televised movie hosting. Due to overwhelming popular demand, Shudder brought Briggs back for two specials later in the year, Thanksgiving’s Dinners of Death and December’s A Very Joe Bob Christmas. The Last Drive-In series premiered in March 2019, and to date has featured films spanning five decades, encompassing everything from classics to obscurities and foreign cult offerings. From time to time, filmmakers and other guests have visited Briggs’ Texas trailer park to join the conversation, including horror icon and Castle Freak star Barbara Crampton and Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer’s boundary-breaking director, John McNaughton.

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

The upcoming film will center around photographers Erin and Patrick, who are brought aboard the vessel with their young son Lukas and unleash a series of events that entwines their family with the ship’s dark past.

According to The Queen Mary’s synopsis, as the terror unfolds around the family they begin to realize there is more to this sumptuous ocean liner than meets the eye: its remarkable legacy masking violent secrets. As Erin and Patrick uncover the haunted layers that the vast ship contains, it becomes increasingly clear that there is only one way out for them — to go even deeper.

The Queen Mary will be the first horror film to be shot on board the actual real-life ship.

In 1970s Los Angeles, the legendary ghost La Llorona (the Weeping Woman) is stalking the night — and the children. Ignoring the eerie warning of a troubled mother, a social worker and her own kids are drawn into a frightening supernatural realm. Their only hope of surviving La Llorona’s deadly wrath is a disillusioned priest who practices mysticism to keep evil at bay.

When Anna Garcia, a social worker and widow raising her two children in 1970s Los Angeles, is called to check in on one of her cases, she finds signs of foul play. As she digs deeper, she finds striking similarities between the case and the terrifying supernatural occurrences haunting her family. Enlisting the help of a local faith healer, she discovers that La Llorona has latched herself onto Anna and will stop at nothing to take her children.

La Llorona, also known as the Weeping Woman,[6] is a female ghost in Latin American folklore who lost her children and causes misfortune to those nearby.[4] As she searches for them, she takes other lost children, making them her own. Anna turns to mysticism with the help of a disillusioned priest to fight the evil entity.

Starring: Linda Cardellini as Anna Garcia, Raymond Cruz, Patricia Velásquez, Marisol Ramirez as La Llorona
Director: Michael Chaves
Written by: Tobias Iaconis
Producers: James Wan, Gary Dauberman, Emile Gladstone
