The first ‘Hank the Cowdog’ book was published in 1982. Nearly 40 years later, and more than 70 books, the series is still winning over a whole new generation of readers.
This year alone, author John R. Erikson launched a story time. Now, talented Texan and Academy Award-winning actor Matthew McConaughey is leading a star-studded podcast and voicing the “Head of Ranch Security,” Hank.
When Will the Hank the Cowdog Podcast Launch?
Similar to the books, the podcast will start with a classic line: “It’s me again, Hank the Cowdog!” The five-episode podcast features a line up of stars.
In addition to McConaughey, expect to hear the voices of Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons, Leslie Jordan, Cynthia Erivo, Joel Edgerton, Michael Shannon, Scoot McNairy. While the podcast is written by Jeff Nichols (and directed and executive produced), the original creator, Erikson, will still be a part of the podcast as one of the character’s voices.
The podcast will also still feature a variety of “tangled mysteries and capers” that fans of ‘Hank the Cowdog’ have come to know and love. But there’s also something new to look forward to: original music numbers to accompany the stories.
So when will these fabulous tongue-slobbering episodes launch? September 14!
