As the wildly successful "Mystery Science Theater 3000" Kickstarter campaign heads into its final hours, Joel Hodgson has announced a roster of writers for the reboot that includes "Community" creator Dan Harmon, his "Rick & Morty" co-creator Justin Roiland and "The LEGO Movie Sequel" director Rob Schrab.

They'll be joined on the reboot of the cult-favorite television series by "The Muppets" writer Nell Scovell, "Ready Player One" author Ernie Cline, "The Name of the Wind" author Pat Rothfuss, musical act Paul & Storm, former "Simpsons" writer Dana Gould, and "The Book of Mormon" and "Frozen" songwriter Robert Lopez.

Hodgson also announced the involvement of artists Wayne White ("Pee-wee's Playhouse"), Pendleton Ward ("Adventure Time"), Rebecca Sugar ("Steven Universe"), Steven Sugar ("Steven Universe") and comics veteran Guy Davis.

Launched Nov. 10, the crowdfunding campaign to reboot "MST3K" has generated $4.4 million in pledges -- more than double its initial goal -- ensuring the production of at least nine episodes. The Kickstarter ends early Saturday.
