As reported earlier this week by Deadline the voice cast of Netflix’s much awaited animated series, The Last Kids on Earth, has indeed been finalized. There are a lot of big names lining up for this series including Mark Hamill (Star Wars), Catherine O’Hara (Beetlejuice), Rosario Dawson (Grindhouse: Planet Terror/Death Proof), Nick Wolfhard (World Trigger), and the wonderful Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead).
The Last Kids on Earth is based on the bestselling book series of the same name by author Max Brallier. The series follows 13 year old Jack Sullivan (Nick Wolfhard) as he and his friends battle zombies in a post-apocalyptic world. The books are full of fun and good old fashioned kid antics, paired with a healthy dose of monsters to fight, so it is sure to make a great Netflix series.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid meets The Walking Dead in this graphic novel series, in which a band of suburban middle schoolers play video games, gorge themselves on candy, and battle zombies in the aftermath of the monster apocalypse.
While most of us may not be familiar with Nick Wolfhard, who does mostly voice acting, horror fans most definitely recognize that last name. Nick Wolfhard is the younger brother of Finn Wolfhard, everyone’s favorite wise-cracking member of It’s Losers Club.
It’s been a while since we have seen Mr. Campbell fight deadites, now it’s time to take on some straight-forward zombies. As of right now it has not been revealed what character Campbell will be playing, but I am sure it is one we will all love (as usual). The Last Kids on Earth is set to debut later this year, however no specific date has been announced at this time.
Well are you ready to see, or hear in this instance, Bruce back in action again? Who else is excited for this series? Let us know on Twitter, in the official NOFS Subreddit, and on Facebook in the Horror Movie Fiend Club!
