Netflix has announced the voice cast for its upcoming animated TV series adaptation of Max Braillier’s bestselling The Last Kids on Earth book series.
Nick Wolfhard (Beyblade Burst) will lend his voice to the lead character Jack Sullivan, and will be joined by Mark Hamill (Star Wars: The Last Jedi), Rosario Dawson (Daredevil), Catherine O’Hara (Home Alone), Keith David (They Live), Bruce Campbell (The Evil Dead), Garland Whitt (Criminal Minds), Montse Hernandez (Coco) and Charles Demers (Beat Bugs).
As per Deadline, 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.”
“The way the series resonates with readers around the world — it’s absolutely humbling. I’m so pleased that the adventures of Jack Sullivan and his friends will continue to grow, both on the page and now on screen,” stated Brallier. “I couldn’t ask for better partners – Atomic Cartoons, Netflix and Penguin – to help me share these stories. And I’m beyond excited to reveal the newest cover while announcing this incredible cast. Seeing these actors bring the characters to life is a dream come true.”
The Last Kids on Earth is set to hit Netflix later this year.
