Mystery Science Theater 3000 trailer

In the not too distant future, the new season of Mystery Science Theater 3000 will premiere on Netflix! All 14 new episodes will debut on the streaming service on April 14. The trailer above is sure to please longtime fans of the show.

The cult classic series is about space prisoners who riff their way through the bad movies they’re forced to watch. Created by Joel Hodgson, the revival stars Jonah Ray, Baron Vaughn, Hampton Yount, Felicia Day, and Patton Oswalt.

Mystery Science Theater 3000’s national broadcast life began in 1989. Set on the Satellite of Love where a human host is trapped by mad scientists with his two robot sidekicks and forced to watch an endless run of B movies. The format proved to be popular, and during its eleven years and 198 episodes on the Comedy Channel and Sci-Fi Channel, it attained a loyal fan base and critical acclaim, including a Peabody Award and two Emmys® nominations.

A Kickstarter starter campaign, spearheaded by Hodgson and Shout! Factory, surpassed the goal of funding the production of 14 new episodes and set the world record as the highest-funded film and TV crowdfunding campaign in history.

Please be good. Please don’t let Patton Oswalt and Felicia Day shit this up with politics. Please especially don’t let Patton Oswalt smugly disapprove of something he doesn’t like. Please, please, please don’t have Crow say “Actually, it’s about ethics in movie riffing” during a movie. Please.

The New MST3K Teaser Has Just Arrived

That’s right. The brand spankin’ new, revived Mystery Science Theater 3000 has just released a teaser for the upcoming season that starts streaming on April 14th on Netflix.
