Netflix Renews 'Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return'
8 months ago
Netflix has announced that Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return will be coming back for a second season. The news was made official during the show's 12-hour Thanksgiving holiday marathon as a breaking news announcement.
A cult classic dating back to the 1980s, Mystery Science Theater 3000 had been off the air for 16 years before interest in the series was rekindled thanks to a Kickstarter campaign in 2015 that raised an impressive $5.7 million - the most-ever for a film and television crowdfunding effort. The series made its return earlier this year with 14 new episodes made available for streaming on Netflix.
Set in the not-too-distant future, the sci-fi comedy follows Jonah Heston, a hapless human who is forced to watch a selection of B-rated movies by mad scientists at the Gizmonic Institute.
