20. The Last Kids on Earth

Premiere date: Sept. 17

Here’s another series for young viewers to enjoy this fall, The Last Kids on Earth, an American-Canadian animation series from Thunderbird Entertainment’s animation studio Atomic Cartoons. It is based on the children books of the same name. Not sure if this one is your cup of tea? Read on!

The Last Kids on Earth stars the voices of Nick Wolfhard, Charles Demers, Montse Hernandez, Mark Hamill, Catherine O’Hara, Bruce Campbell, Rosario Dawson. To put it simply, it’s a star-studded animated series.

A lot of work has been put into this action-comedy. Production began over a year ago, with a series order from Netflix in early 2018. The journey to find the perfect voices to bring the colorful characters to life took some time, but was eventually put together by March 2019. Still, its premiere on Netflix was pushed back from May 2019 to Sept. 17, 2019.

The Last Kids on Earth follows Jack Sullivan (voiced here by Nick Wolfhard), a 13-year-old boy and his friends who took shelter in a treehouse after surviving a monster apocalypse. It’s a futuristic series with crazy gadgets and visually stunning animation. Their treehouse is more than ordinary, and this is no band of ordinary kids, either.

When Jack and his pals aren’t playing video games, they are fighting off zombies as they continue to struggle keeping up with the apocalypse. Parents, if you have long been searching for an animated series you can watch with your kids without being annoyed, The Last Kids on Earth is it!
