MST3K’s New Season Gets a Trailer Before November Launch
Can you survive the Gauntlet?
A Turkey Day just isn’t complete without MST3K. In keeping with tradition, one that started way back when MST3K was still on Comedy Central, the show is releasing hours of entertainment during the Thanksgiving break. Now M3T3K fans have a trailer to get them excited for all the new movies, with a reminder to watch on November 22nd.
Netflix describes the new season adding, “In the new season of Mystery Science Theater 3000, Kinga Forrester (Felicia Day) and her loyal henchman, Max (Patton Oswalt) unveils the latest innovation in movie riffing– THE GAUNTLET! Can Jonah Heston and the bots survive sitting through six cheesy movies in a row?”.
As you can guess, Netflix is dropping six new episodes on November 22nd, that will be for the US and Canada. We still don’t know the titles of the six movies but we are positive they would be hard to watch without Jonah and the bots. The first season earned the show a Saturn Award nomination for Best Presentation on Television, and a nomination for an OFTA Television Award for Best Variety Program. The series returned to fans back in 2017 with a new cast and a new villainous team pumping movie experiments in space. Felicia Day took on the role of Kinga Forrester for the revival and Patton Oswald starred in the role of Max (TV’s Son of TV’s Frank). On the experiment side, Jonah Ray took over hosting duties as Jonah Heston, with Baron Vaughn voicing Tom Servo and Hampton Yount voicing Crow T. Robot. Just like the original, the show was created by Joel Hodgson, the first host of the series and watcher of terrible movies.
Not only did the original cast stop by from time to time, a wide-array of guest stars made a pit-stop on the moon. Guest stars in the first season included Mark Hamill, Neil Patrick Harris, Jerry Seinfeld, Joel McHale, and Wil Wheaton. We will have to wait until Thanksgiving to see which stars make the journey to Moon 13 this time around.
The new season of M3T3K will launch on November 22, 2018.
