AEW star Chris Jericho will be hopping onto Shudder with Joe Bob Briggs for The Last Drive-In’s season premiere. Shudder announced on Tuesday that Jericho will co-host the premiere, which will stream on the horror service on April 24th at 9PM ET.

Jericho said in the announcement, “When Joe Bob Briggs asked me to come watch a movie featuring butt darts, brain sucking, backgammon for digits, a maniacal mini-Oates AND a dick dog, I said: what time and what trailer park!”

Briggs, who is the host of the popular horror double feature series, said, “Chris Jericho is the most exciting wrestling personality to befriend horror since Rowdy Roddy Piper co-hosted They Live! with me on TNT years ago. In fact, Jericho may be the most famous wrestler in the world right now, not to mention lead singer for a metal band that charted on Billboard with an anthem that thousands of arena fans know by heart. I’m gonna share the hosting chair with Chris so that he can go wild on a seventies horror classic he’s been crazy about since high school. He’s a world class athlete, podcaster, actor, musician—he’s really a one-man bundle of pop-culture fun—and on April 24th he’s gonna prove that he’s also a drive-in kind of guy.”

The Last Drive-In has proven to be very popular among horrorhounds, with every episode in the first couple of seasons plus the holiday specials trending on Twitter. New episodes will run Friday nights from April 24th through June 26th.
