Best animated shows on Netflix: The Last Kids on Earth

Based on the book series of the same name written by Max Brallier, The Last Kids on Earth consisted of three seasons on Netflix, airing from 2019 before wrapping up in 2020. Then in 2021, Netflix released an interactive special.

If you are a Stranger Things fan, you might be surprised to know that Finn Wolfhard’s (Mike) brother, Nick Wolfhard, voiced the lead role 13-year-old Jack Sullivan in the animated show. Throughout its run, it also featured the vocal talents of revered genre talents like Bruce Campbell, Keith David, Rosario Dawson and Mark Hamill, which is pretty dang cool if you ask me.

Scrappy Jack Sullivan must team up with his friends to fight the zombies and monsters that invade his hometown on the verge of the apocalypse. Can Jack and his friends survive and save the world while they’re at it?

With a fun plot, great pacing and interesting characters, The Last Kids on Earth is super enjoyable to watch. While it didn’t become as acclaimed as some of the other animated series on Netflix, it’s still a blast and it’s pretty short and quick to watch, too, so it’s not like it’ll take a huge time commitment to check it out!
