Neon Joe, Werewolf Hunter is an American television series that originally ran as a five episode mini-series on Adult Swim, created by and starring Jon Glaser. The series originally aired consecutively each night between December 7, 2015 and December 11, 2015.[1] Produced by PFFR, the same production company used for Glaser's other projects Delocated and Jon Glaser Loves Gear. The first season was filmed in and around Palisades, New York.

Glaser stated in a November 2015 interview that the series could go beyond just a mini-series if enough interest is generated.[2][3] Turner issued a press release on May 12, 2016 confirming that Neon Joe, Werewolf Hunter would be returning for another season.[4][5]

Season 2 premiered on May 22, 2017, running a new episode each night until its conclusion on May 26, 2017.[6]
