Netflix has announced it has bought the rights to stream the upcoming reboot of Mystery Science Theater 3000 in the U.S., Canada, the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.
The revival of the classic comedy TV series, where its stars make fun of really bad movies while the film is running, first received funding in 2015 via a highly successful crowdfunding campaign. It ended up wth over $6 million to spend for 14 new episodes. Netflix stated:
Original creator Joel Hodgson will be joined by comedian Jonah Ray ("Jonah Heston") as the new host and Felicia Day (Geek & Sundry) as "Kinga Forrester." Joel McHale and Dan Harmon have attached as writers. Additionally, Mary Jo Pehl ("Pearl Forrester"), Bill Corbett ("Crow T. Robot") and Kevin Murphy ("Tom Servo") from the original cast will reprise their roles in the new series. Elliott Kalan, Emmy-winning former head writer of The Daily Show, will serve as the new head writer on the revival.
Netflix will begin streaming the new MST3K show "in the Not-Too-Distant Future".
