Cult classic show “Mystery Science Theater 3000” is about to make a big comeback — and now we know exactly when the Satellite of Love will once again enter Earth’s orbit. The Kickstarter-funded reboot will arrive on Netflix on April 14, the streaming service announced via their Facebook page.
The announcement also came with the first official cast photo from the restarted series. The picture includes new host Jonah Ray as well as the new Mads played by Felicia Day and Patton Oswalt. Voice actors Hampton Yount (Crow T. Robot) and Baron Vaughn (Tom Servo) can also be seen in the photo, along with series creator Joel Hodgson.
The new “MST3K” announced their partnership with Netflix at last year’s Comic-Con International in San Diego, following the initial Kickstarter campaign in November 2015. The campaign was funded quickly, raising $5.7 million dollars and budning 14 full-length episodes in addition to a new holiday special.
In addition to the pictured cast, the new “MST3K’ will also feature contributions from writers Dan Harmon, Justin Roiland, Rob Schrab, Nell Scovell, Ernie Cline, Pat Rothfuss, Paul & Storm, Dana Gould and Robert Lopez. Artist Wayne White (“Pee-wee’s Playhouse”) will also be involved, as will Pendleton Ward (“Adventure Time”), Rebecca Sugar (“Steven Universe”), Steven Sugar (“Steven Universe”) and comics veteran Guy Davis.
The new “Mystery Science Theater 3000” debuts on Netflix on April 14.
