TV revivals are all the rage right now. Between Twin Peaks, The X-Files, Gilmore Girls, and Mystery Science Theater 3000, your favorite boob tube watches are all coming back in a big way.
In April, Netflix re-launched MST3K to somewhat mixed reviews from fans and critics, but it obviously garnered enough eyeballs and solid word-of-mouth, as the streaming monolith is bringing Tom Servo and Crow T. Robot back to riff on more unwatchable horror and cult titles in the not-so-distant future.
The announcement came via a video announcement during MST3K's annual Turkey Day Marathon. Take a look:
Hodgson also sent this special message to those who backed the series on Kickstarter:
“Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return has officially been renewed for another season on Netflix in the ‘not too distant future!’ I wish I had more details to share, but so far, that’s literally everything we’re able to announce – and, of course, I’ll tell you more as soon as I can. But for today, I hope you’ll be as happy as I am to know that our Kickstarter worked: thanks to you, Mystery Science Theater 3000 will be back for even more new episodes.”
So, there you go, weirdos. While no date has officially been set, you've got some primo goofiness to look forward to very soon. Happy Turkey Day!
