Mystery Science Theater 3000 Trailer Reopens the Satellite of Love

Almost 18 years ago, the final episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000 aired on Syfy, back when it was still called The Sci-Fi Channel. But no TV show ever truly dies forever, and next month, MST3K will officially live again with a new cast, new writers, and a lot of terrible movies that exist to be mocked!

Netflix has debuted a new trailer for MST3K, which reveals that the new series will actually have an origin episode for the reluctant host, Jonah Heston, as played by our colleague from The Nerdist Podcast, Jonah Ray! But we’re also excited to see Geek & Sundry founder, Felicia Day as Kinga Forrester, the new mad scientist who wants to resurrect her family’s greatest creation: the Satellite of Love. Joining Day as Kinga’s sidekick is fan-favorite comedian Patton Oswalt as TV’s Son of TV’s Frank. That’s right, it’s a new generation of Mads! Additionally, the trailer also gives us the first taste of Hampton Yount and Baron Vaughn as the new voices of Crow and Tom Servo, respectively.

MST3K‘s road back included a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign that launched in late 2015. By the time the campaign was over, the new season of MST3K had raised $5,764,229, and the planned 12-episode run was expanded to 14 episodes, including a Christmas special. Unless you really know your terrible movies, the new trailer didn’t offer up many hints about which titles to expect. However, the gloriously low tech and even cheesy special effects have clearly been retained, even in an era where they could have easily been replaced by flawless CGI. Part of the charm of MST3K has always been its imperfect touches, and it’s nice to see that is still true in the latest incarnation of the show.

Are you excited about the return of MST3K? Which movies do you want to see the show tackle this season? Let us know in the comment section below!
