Pee-wee Herman's return to television officially has a release date. Netflix released a teaser trailer for Pee-wee's Big Holiday, a Netflix original movie starring Paul Reubens as his classic comedy character. The movie debuts as an Netflix exclusive movie on March 18th, the same day as the premiere of the second season of Daredevil.
Reubens has been portraying Pee-wee Herman since 1979 and has starred in multiple television shows and movies over the last 35 years. Pee-wee Herman's popularity peaked in the early 1990s, although Reubens has made several appearances as Herman over the years. Pee-wee's Big Holiday marks Reubens' first return to the character since 2010, when he appeared in a stage show that ran on Broadway for several months.
Pee-wee's Big Holiday will feature Pee-Wee taking his first vacation ever after meeting a mysterious stranger. Pee-Wee's Big Holiday has been in development since 2010, although filming only began last year. Judd Apatow produced the film alongside Reubens, with John Lee directing. In addition to Reubens, Pee-wee's Big Holiday stars Tara Buck, Joe Manganiello and Alia Shawkat. There's no indication that any of the human or puppet characters from the popular Pee-wee's Playhouse will appear, but Netflix could be saving those appearances as surprise cameos.
Check out Pee-wee's Big Holiday on Netflix on March 18th.
