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.

Fitz promises May.

She thinks it might be better if Jemma isn’t there.

Daisy agrees.

“Jemma, we both know Fitz, and we both know that he’s still thinking about it.” Daisy pauses, shifting in her stance. “Everything.”

“Well, of course.” Jemma replies, indignantly, glancing first at Daisy, and then to May.  

May thinks that Jemma’s still thinking about it, too. Everything.

(aren’t they all?)

“And I knew him in the Framework.” May rubs her forehead, squeezing her eyes shut just for a moment. “I was there a lot longer than you.”

Daisy nudges Jemma and smiles lightly. “C’mon, it’ll be a girls’ night. We can see what space prison has in their movie collection, since I don’t think there’s any Wi-Fi. We can invite Elena, too.”

Jemma doesn’t respond to Daisy, or even look at her. She stares at May, and May stares back. Finally, she blinks, reaching up to brush a strand of hair that fell into her face. “I think… I think you’re right.”

May exhales. “He in your room?”

“Yeah.”

“Good. I’ll come get you in a bit.”

Jemma nods, eyes shifting towards the floor, biting her lip, and standing very, very still.

May watches as Daisy links her arm with Jemma’s, standing very, very still, but with her.

“Jemma.”

She looks up.

May meets her eyes and reaches out, gripping her shoulder gently. “It’s going to be okay.”

(But she always promises that, doesn’t she?)
