Developed by Atomic Comics and set for release on the streaming service later this year, The Last Kids on Earth will have the release of the fifth book The Last Kids on Earth and the Midnight Blade on September 17 to help promote the premiere.

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. 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."

– Max Brallier, Author

First acquired by Atomic Cartoons in 2017 and ordered to series by Netflix in early 2018, The Last Kids on Earth will have Brallier serving as executive producer, along with showrunner Scott Peterson and Atomic Cartoons' Matthew Berkowitz and Jennifer Twiner McCarron.
