Following the iconic sketch on Saturday Night Live that went viral last year, Tom Hanks’ character David S. Pumpkins is set to return with a Halloween-themed animated half-hour special on NBC.
Hanks will reprise his role as a voice and will also appear on camera at the beginning of the half-hour.
Joining him will be Mikey Day and Bobby Moynihan, sketch co-creator Streeter Seidell and Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage.
Set in a small suburban town on All Hallows’ Eve, the special centers on David Pumpkins and his skeleton sidekicks who show a young boy and his sister the true meaning of Halloween, answering none of their questions along the way.
The special will air on October 28th at 11:30 p.m. on NBC.
