Welcome to the Saturday Mourning Cartoons podcast, the weekly show for all things animation, including news, reviews, and interviews, from co-hosts Dave Trumbore and Sean Paul Ellis. On today’s show, we’re giving you an early peek at the new one-hour special The Last Kids on Earth, coming to Netflix on Tuesday, September 17th. Not coincidentally, that’s the same day that author/showrunner Max Brallier‘s latest title in the series becomes available in bookstores everywhere. (Check out my interview with showrunners Brallier and Scott D. Peterson here.) And as a bonus, we chat with the show’s lead actor Nick Wolfhard about his character and where he hopes to take Jack Sullivan from here!
