Production information and plot

Neon Joe, Werewolf Hunter is a horror parody, action and comedy 5-episode television miniseries that aired nightly on Adult Swim from December 7, 2015 to December 11, 2015. The series is created, produced and stars Jon Glaser, and is produced by PFFR. Jon Glaser is known for his performances in Parks and Recreation and Girls, as well as for his recent Adult Swim project Delocated.

Neon Joe is set in a Vermont town that`s quaint to the point of almost being ridiculous, and right against this lovely background is where werewolves start murdering people and the comical alpha male hero Neon Joe fights them in his neon highlighter outfit. The freelance werewolf hunter lands in the Twin Peaks-ish town of Garrity to discover that there are secrets to be discovered and a bunch of eccentric characters to deal with, besides his principal task. Scott Adsit stars as Sonny Cocoa, Steve Cirbus is Sheriff Dalton, Steve Little is Cleve Menu and Stephanie March plays Mayor Carol Blanton.

Ratings and chances of renewal

Neon Joe fared very well for such a niche show – over 1.1 million viewers and a 0.6 rating in 18-49 demographic. The show is off-beat and energetic, its deadpan humor and loopiness are inventive and refreshing. It seems that Adult Swim has a winner on its hands, and we should expect a continuation of the silly – in the best sense of the word - and inventive series. Will Neon Joe, Werewolf Hunter be picked up for another run? No word from the network just yet.
