Netflix’s ‘MST3K’ reboot is coming sooner than you think, and the trailer looks hilarious

It’s going to be a great spring: Netflix‘s Mystery Science Theater 3000 reboot is coming sooner than you think.

It was announced last summer that the beloved series—which crowdfunded its return—would air on Netflix, with new hosts Patton Oswalt, Felicia Day, and Jonah Ray. A newly released cast photo shows the new hosts, as well as original host Joel Hodgson and new robot voice actors Baron Vaughn and Hampton Yount.

Now we wait and see what films they rip apart.

‘MST3K’ trailer

The reboot’s first trailer landed on March 22. You can watch it below.

‘MST3K’ cast

Netflix dropped the first trailer for its Mystery Science Theater 3000 update on March 22, and it gives us a look at the new generation of Mads.

Kinga Forrester (Felicia Day) is attempting to preserve her family’s bad-movie experiment, MST3K, with the help of TV’s Son of TV’s Frank (Patton Oswalt). Together they ensnare Jonah Heston (Jonah Ray) and make him watch awful films. We get a glimpse of one of them: Reptilicus, a 1961 film about an ancient Godzilla-esque monster that’s accidentally reanimated and can’t be killed.

‘MST3K’ release date

The series will land on Netflix on April 14.
