Mystery Science Theater 3000, the beloved cult comedy show from the 90s, officially announced it will be rebooted at San Diego Comic Con on Saturday. The series reboot, which was funded with a Kickstarter campaign, will debut on Netflix.
If you're not familiar, the original MST3K followed a janitor (Joel Hodgson) who was trapped in space by two evil villains and forced to watch terrible B-movies. In order to make it more tolerable, the janitor built two robot companions, who would watch and mock the movies with him.
The reboot is being produced by Hodgson, and it will star new cast members Patton Oswalt and Felicia Day. Former Daily Show head writer Elliott Kalan will serve as head writer, with Community's Joel McHale and Dan Harmon also on the writing staff. There's plenty of powerhouse comedic talent to riff and tear down some terrible old movies in hysterical new ways.
MST3K will make its triumphant return on Netflix with 14 new episodes.
