Blockbuster Releases Hilarious Trailer and Official Key Art

Netflix's upcoming sitcom about the last Blockbuster releases the official trailer and key art.

Netflix‘s upcoming sitcom about the last Blockbuster releases the official trailer and key art.

The story of the last existing Blockbuster is coming to our homes, and likely phones, as it has been years since most of the world has been to a video rental store. Any still existing physical video rental store likely prefers cash because they are a money laundering front. But I digress. Randall Park and Melissa Fumero lead the upcoming Netflix sitcom about the last-of-its-kind video rental store. The series was created by Vanessa Ramos, who you may know from her work on other series like Brooklyn 99 and Superstore. She will be the showrunner, executive producer, and one of the writers, of what is poised to be the next great sitcom.

The trailer looks to masterfully wield subversive humor in the same manner as Ramos’ other series work. Combined with the tried and proven leads of Park and Fumero, and support from other season performers like J.B. Smoove and Olga Merediz, It’s hard to not think Netflix has a hit on its hands. It’s also exciting to see Madeleine Arthur and Tyler Alvarez after their stints on Snow Piercer and American Vandal. The talent appears to be there in front of and behind the camera. Even the stills of the series look good. Check out some first look images below.

Blockbuster premieres exclusively on Netflix on November 3, 2022. A series about the former giant of the entertainment industry is long overdue, but the series looks good to foot the bill for the late fee.

Timmy Yoon (Randall Park) is an analog dreamer in a 5G world. He’s spent his entire adult life dedicated to his first love, movies — a passion that’s kept him at his first and only job, managing his hometown Blockbuster Video.

Then Timmy is alarmed to learn that his store is officially the last Blockbuster in America. He now has no choice but to take action to stay open and keep his friends employed. Timmy and his staff quickly come to realize that being home to the last Blockbuster might actually be exactly what their community needs to rekindle the human connections they lost to the digital age. It also unexpectedly reunites him with his long-time crush Eliza (Melissa Fumero), who’s recently come back to work for him. Will this battle to preserve the past be the push Timmy needs to step into the present? His employees can only hope so.
