The Critters head back to Earth in trailer for new series from Shudder

Beyond knowing that the titular Critters are carnivorous fur-balls from outer-space and that the third film starred a young Leonardo DiCaprio, I know next to nothing of the CRITTERS franchise, but the series does have quite the following who will likely be pleased to see the creatures back in action in a new TV series.

Coming from Warner Bros. Television Group, Critters: A New Binge will launch on Shudder next month with eight episodes. "It’s been more than 30 years since the Critters first landed on the big screen, and we’re incredibly proud to bring this cult classic franchise back to fans. Shudder is the perfect platform for this fun, scary new take on everyone’s favorite, furry extraterrestrial threat. We are committed to delivering Shudder members the best horror content available and this time we are also bringing the laughs," said Peter Girardi, Executive Vice President, Blue Ribbon Content, and Executive Vice President, Alternative Programming, Warner Bros. Animation. As I'm not overly familiar with the franchise, I'm not the best person to judge the rather schlocky trailer, but with a helping of practical effects, buckets of blood, and a giant rolling ball consisting of hundreds of Critters, it does look as though it could be fun. What do the CRITTERS fans out there think?

The official synopsis for Critters: The New Binge:

Pursued by intergalactic bounty hunters, the Critters return to Earth on a secret mission and encounter lovelorn high-schooler Christopher (Joey Morgan, Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse), his crush Dana (Stephi Chin-Salvo, iZOMBIE), his best friend Charlie (Bzhaun Rhoden, Van Helsing), and his mom Veronica (Kirsten Robek, The Edge of Seventeen), whose past will come back to bite them—literally. The series also features Gilbert Gottfried (Aladdin, Justice League Action) and Thomas Lennon (Reno 911!, Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich).

Critters: The New Binge will debut on Shudder on March 21, 2019.
