Netflix Brings Us a New Trailer for Mystery Science Theater 3000

On April 14, Netflix will be bringing Mystery Science Theater 3000 fans a brand-new, 14-episode season of the cult series, and they have just dropped a trailer for it. Check out the new Mystery Science Theater 3000 trailer below for a preview of some of the new characters, sets and — of course — cheesy movies, including 1961’s Danish giant monster gem Reptilicus,1964’s The Time Travelers, and the 1978 Star Wars rip-off Starcrash!

Created and co-directed by Joel Hodgson, the Mystery Science Theater 3000 revival stars Jonah Ray (The Nerdist Podcast, Maron) as Jonah Heston, along with his robot sidekicks Tom Servo (Baron Vaughn, Grace and Frankie) and Crow T. Robot (Hampton Yount, The Eric Andre Show), who are forced by Kinga Forrester (Felicia Day, The GuildDr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog) to watch (and hilariously mock) terrible movies onboard the Satellite of Love. Comedian Patton Oswalt (Young Adult) will appear as TV’s Son of TV’s Frank, Kinga’s henchman. Star Wars star Mark Hamill is slated to be one of many guest stars throughout the season.

In late 2015, Hodgson started a highly-successful Kickstarter campaign to fund the new season, which through voracious fan contributions netted $5.7 million, a Kickstarter record. While they have yet to reveal the B-movie titles that will be riffed on by Jonah and the bots, Hodgson has previously stated that many of the titles were licensed through Shout Factory, the label that also distributes the classic episodes of MST3K on DVD/Blu-ray.
