Two months after production started on Blockbuster, a new Netflix sitcom set in a fictionalized version of the world's last Blockbuster Video store, the streaming giant has released the first official cast photo from the series, featuring WandaVision's Randall Park and Brooklyn Nine-Nine's Melissa Fumero wearing the classic blue polo shirts that represented the uniform of Blokbuster corporate employees. If you spent any amount of time in the big-box video store over the years, this image -- with the yellow walls, the familiar torn-ticket logo, and the signage and name tags that look exactly right -- will likely light up the nostalgia centers of your brain a little bit.
‘Blockbuster’ Image Reveals Randall Park and Melissa Fumero in Comedy Series About the Last Video Store
Long ago, back when we had to physically go after the movies we wanted to watch at home, Blockbuster used to be the go-to video store that housed virtually every title you could want. Ironically, now that the mega video store is gone, Netflix – its former competition – will get to celebrate the brand’s legacy in a comedy series. Blockbuster is in the works at the streamer, and a first-look image has been released to hype up audiences with a heavy dose of nostalgia.
Blockbuster First Look: Randall Park And Melissa Fumero Work At America's Last Blockbuster Video In New Netflix Comedy
It may be hard to recall, but in the very distant past, there was a time when people didn't pay six different subscription fees for six individual streaming services. Instead of scrolling through Netflix and HBO Max for a Saturday night movie, they would browse the shelves at something called a video store. Weird, huh? The most famous of them was Blockbuster Video, a video rental franchise that was once a hub for movie fans but is essentially extinct today, save for the lone surviving store in Bend, Oregon. The stand-alone building is now a tourist attraction for the small town, and even became the subject of a documentary from Taylor Morden, "The Last Blockbuster." Ironically, said doc can be found on Netflix, the very same company that basically represents the nail in the Blockbuster coffin, as its former competitor and eventually, an example of the streaming takeover. And because irony will never die, Netflix is now creating an entire single-camera workplace comedy about the last Blockbuster, called, appropriately enough, "Blockbuster."

Park and Fumero star in Blockbuster, an ensemble comedy that takes place in the last Blockbuster Video in America. They are joined by co-stars Tyler Alvarez, Madeleine Arthur, Olga Merediz, JB Smoove and Kamaia Fairburn.
