Netflix Cancels ‘Mystery Science Theater 3000’ Revival
The snarky bots of “Mystery Science Theater 3000” and their human companion, Jonah Ray, will not be returning for another season on Netflix, Variety has confirmed.

Jonah Ray, host of the new “MST3K,” tweeted Tuesday that Netflix had canceled the show, a long-running cult favorite. Netflix confirmed that the series will not return for another season.

“We don’t know what the future holds for the show,” Jonah Ray wrote in his Twitter thread, adding, “it always seemed to figure out how to survive. From Comedy Central to SyFy. Then kept alive by Rifftrax & Cinematic Titanic. Whatever happens, I want everybody to know that getting a chance to be on this show was a dream come true.”

Jonah Ray wondered if AMC Networks’ Shudder streaming service might rescue “MST3K”: “Now if only I can convince @shudder to pick us up and to let us share a night with Joe Bob Briggs?

‘Mystery Science Theater 3000’ at 30: How a Cult TV Show Changed Pop Culture

In the not too distant past — November 24th, 1988, A.D. — a moderately successful stand-up comedian named Joel Hodgson slipped on a jumpsuit. He then spent a few hours on a Minneapolis Uhf station making fun of the terrible movies Invaders from the Deep and Revenge of the Mysterions from Mars, alongside a couple of handmade robot puppets. Only a handful of lucky Minnesotans were watching Ktma that Thanksgiving night, exactly 30 years ago. They all saw the birth of a pop culture phenomenon: a charmingly cheap-looking show that, no joke, changed television.

‘Mystery Science Theater 3000’: It’s Lasted 30 Years, and It Could Go 30 More

‘Mystery Science Theater 3000’: It’s Lasted 30 Years, and It Could Go 30 More
[Editor’s note: Mild spoilers follow for the first episode of “Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Gauntlet.”]

When “Mystery Science Theater 3000” returned for what was technically Season 12 on Thanksgiving Day, it did so under the weight of a huge cliffhanger: At the end of Season 11, Jonah (Jonah Ray) had been devoured by a robot snake — his ultimate fate left in the balance…

…a fact that gets totally brushed aside at the beginning of the first episode, so that Jonah and his faithful robot friends Crow (Hampton Yount) and Tom Servo (Baron Vaughn) can get back to what matters: making fun of bad movies on the Satellite of Love.

“It’s a commentary on shows that do big cliffhangers, and just like, ‘Oh, what if they just didn’t care?'” Ray said in an interview. “What if the show itself just said, ‘Eh, don’t worry about it. No one cares, we just want to get back to doing the show.’ It was just the funniest

MST3K Season 12 Review - Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Gauntlet Is Pretty Nice

MST3K season 12 scales back in various ways, but delivers a strong set of six episodes on Netflix.

Movies

When Mystery Science Theater 3000 returned for its eleventh season, they had big shoes to fill. While the series has evolved over the decades, prior change only happened in pieces. When Mike Nelson replaced Joel Hodgson as MST3K host, everything else remained the same. With the jump from Comedy Central to the Sci-Fi Channel, it still just boiled down to losing Trace Beaulieu and having to cover for it. The eleventh season, on the other hand, was a total changeover. New host, new voices for the robots, new antagonists, new set, newer everything.

They did pretty damn well. The fourteen-episode season was well-received overall, even if it had some growing pains. The biggest issue was that the jokes were too rapid-fire and felt unnatural. Lines weren’t given time to breathe

As the latest trailer for “MST3K: The Gauntlet” shows, watching all six parts of the new season won’t be that far off from what Jonah (Jonah Ray), Crow (Hampton Yount), Tom Servo (Baron Vaughn), and the rest of the Satellite of Love crew are going to be subjecting themselves too as well. In a slight spin on the show’s time-tested formula, the gang will be tortured by an unprecedented six-movie marathon.

TVLine Items: Watchmen First Look, Bonus Full Frontal Episode and More

The first look at HBO’s upcoming Watchmen adaptation poses a very important question: “Who watches The Watchmen?”

The comic book-based series — penned by Damon Lindelof (The Leftovers, Lost) — is set in an alternate history where “superheroes” are treated as outlaws. Per HBO, the show “embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel while attempting to break new ground of its own.” The ensemble includes a who’s-who of acting vets and genre faves, including Regina King, Jeremy Irons, Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Adelaide Clemens, Andrew Howard, Tom Mison and Frances Fisher.

April 17th Blu-ray & DVD Releases Include Mystery Science Theater 3000 Season 11, Deep Blue Sea 2

Maybe it’s because this week’s home entertainment releases happen to be falling on the same time as Tax Day, but Tuesday’s Blu-ray and DVD debuts are what my grandfather would refer to as “slim pickins.” In terms of new titles, we’re finally getting the long-awaited sequel to Deep Blue Sea as well as the latest season of Mystery Science Theater 3000 on both formats. Cult film fans will want to nab the new Blu-ray for Day of the Reaper, as it’s a very limited edition release, and for those of you looking to fill in a gap in your personal collections, The Skulls arrives in HD on April 17th, too.

Meltdown Closing: One of La’s Favorite Venues Helped Shape a More Inclusive Comedy Future

When Comedy Central was developing “The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail,” a TV show based off the weekly standup showcase at Meltdown Comics, co-host Jonah Ray knew that there was only one place the show would work. Any time someone suggested the show could be filmed in a different studio or a larger venue, the response was always the same: They had to do it in Meltdown’s back room.

“We couldn’t take the show to TV, we had to bring TV to the show. The low ceilings, the way the sound was in there, the intimacy of the crowd being right up against the comic and the fact that it was almost this speakeasy idea, people having to go through a comic book shop to get to a comedy show,” Ray told IndieWire. “The idea was to almost treat it as if it were a documentary, showing people

New cast of MST3k to go on national "Watch Out For Snakes!" live tour

I've made my love of MST3K and the new cast (Jonah Ray, Baron Vaughn, Hampton Yount) before, and am excited to report an upcoming live show featuring the new cast! It'll be a nationwide tour called the "Watch Out For Snakes!" tour, named after a terribly dubbed line in the abysmal caveman-on-the-loose film Eegah, that's thus become a recurring gag on the show.

‘Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return’ Review: Faces Change, But The Anarchic Spirit Remains the Same
If you know the words, sing along:

If you’re wondering how he eats and breathes

and other science facts,

Just repeat to yourself, “It’s just a show,

I should really just relax…”

for Mystery Science Theater 3000!”

While some things have changed about the revival of “Mystery Science Theater 3000” (premiering this weekend on Netflix) an awful lot hasn’t — including the refrain above from the opening theme song, familiar to generations of fans. The lyrics above, a winky nod to the absurdity of the show’s premise, has always been a major tone-setter for the series created by Joel Hodgson, which brings together an appreciation for the clumsiest efforts in film history with its own crude yet charming style.
