The Last Kids on Earth are back for a second helping this Friday, April 17th with Season 2 premiering on Netflix. Atomic Cartoons’ epic, animated adaptation brings author / show creator Max Brallier‘s bestselling series to life, with showrunner Scott Peterson leading the charge. You can get caught up on the first season now to prepare yourselves for Season 2, which is about to bring a whole new level of post-apocalyptic insanity to your TV viewing schedule. And for returning fans of the series, we’ve got an exclusive treat for you: The first images of two brand-new characters coming to the show, voiced by newcomers / icons Catherine O’Hara and Bruce Campbell!
The Last Kids on Earth follows 13-year-old Jack Sullivan (Nick Wolfhard) and a band of suburban middle-schoolers who live in a decked-out tree house, play video games, gorge themselves on candy, and battle zombies in the aftermath of the monster apocalypse. It’s a hilarious adventure filled with wisecracking kids, crazy gadgets, a lifetime supply of zombies and giant-sized monsters. Season 2 also features the voices of Mark Hamill, Rosario Dawson, and Keith David. [Updated with Hamill and Dawson’s characters below!]
Check out our exclusive reveal of two new characters below, and stay tuned for more!
Chef – Bruce Campbell
Chef is the grouchy monster who cooks all the bizarre concoctions at Joe’s Pizza. He’s still learning how to cook with Earth food. His cuisine is less than tasty, but he challenges Dirk to competitive cook-offs!
Skaelka – Catherine O’Hara
This female monster was a vicious warrior in the monster dimension: scary savage and fiercely ferocious. Skaelka is extremely enthusiastic. She’s always ready to rumble and forever eager to use her ax. She is obsessed with decapitation – and is forever bummed that Jack won’t let her chop off zombie heads.
Bardle – Mark Hamill
Bardle is the default leader of the monsters at Joe’s Pizza. Old, wizened, wizardly. He’s kind of like an advisor to Jack and the human heroes – able to pass on knowledge about monsters, evil Rezzoch, and life in the monster dimension he came from. Bardle is stiff and formal, in both attitude and speech. He comes off tense and angry, but he’s not; he’s just a bit Yoda-esque.
Rezzoch – Rosario Dawson
The ultra-villain. The BIG BAD. She is also known as Rezzoch the Ancient, Destructor of Worlds. Rezzoch has no real form – nothing that humans can truly see. She speaks to her servants and to our heroes through portals. As Bardle tells our heroes, Rezzoch the Ancient comes from the time before time, when great battles were fought in the monster dimension lands. After an age, Rezzoch was defeated. And for millennia, she was gone. The monsters lived in peace. But she returned.
Throughout the ages, there have been rare, evil creatures who strive to bring about the return of Rezzoch. One of these servants awakened Rezzoch, which opened the portals that caused the Monster and Zombie Apocalypse. Only this time, Rezzoch didn’t make it through the portals, and she has to rely on her evil servants to aid in bringing her to Earth.
