Mystery Science Theater 3000 Reboot is Coming

The darling nerdy cult series that roasts the celluloid out of terrible old movies MST3K is coming back, according to series creator Joel Hodgson. The the show itself follows an experimental subject of a mad scientist. The mad scientist subjects the man to terrible movies while launched into space. So to cope he rips his mandatory viewing apart from the seats along with two pop culture obsessed robots Tom Servo and Crow

“We’ve been talking about doing this for five years now, so it’s taken a long long time to get it to happen,” Hodgson told EW. He’s been hosting a crowdfuning campaign to produce more episode of the show and rally the old crew back together. ““The crowdfunding is kind of this big gathering, and not only is it gathering the audience but it’s also gathering together the people who want to get involved.”

While previous cast and writers have returned, part of the renewed production will include new voices for the robots cohosts. “Basically, I’m trying to blend the old with the new,” says Hodgson. “Mystery Science Theater has already refreshed itself once with a completely new cast, so I think it deserves to do that again. The original cast is going to be invited back to write, produce, and do cameos as their mad science characters, and then there’s a new cast with new talent.”

What will they rip next? Mystery Science Theater 3000 is expected to return next year.
