Netflix is turning the bestselling The Last Kids on Earth books into an animated series, and the voice cast has been announced this week. Deadline reports that horror icon Bruce Campbell will lend his voice to the series(!), alongside Mark Hamill, Rosario Dawson, Catherine O’Hara, Keith David, Garland Whitt, Montse Hernandez and Charles Demers.
Nick Wolfhard will voice the main character, Jack Sullivan.
The Last Kids on Earth follows 13-year-old Jack Sullivan 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 series filled with wisecracking kids, crazy gadgets, a lifetime supply of zombies and giant-sized monsters.
Developed by Atomic Cartoons, the animated series is set to launch later this year.
Max Brallier, the writer of the books, is participating in the series as creator and executive producer. Scott Peterson will serve as showrunner.
