Mystery Science Theater 3000 fans have less than a month to wait before the new series is released, but Netflix gave them a taste of what to expect this week.
The reboot of the Minnesota-made cult show debuts on the streaming service on Apr. 14, following a successful Kickstarter drive to bring the show back.
Netflix released a trailer for the new series – which stars Patton Oswalt, Felicia Day, Jonah Ray – this week. You can take a look below.
Even if you’ve never watched the show, you’ve probably seen its trademark visual – silhouettes of a man and his robots sitting in the front of a theater, watching a terrible-looking movie.
The premise is simple: The man and his robots are forced to sit through some of the worst movies ever made, and to cope with their situation, they make jokes throughout.
The show premiered on KTMA public TV in Minneapolis in 1988, and is the brainchild of Wisconsin-born Joel Hodgson. He attended college at Bethel University in St. Paul, according to IMDB. He then moved to Los Angeles where he got his start in show business, WIRED reported, before moving back to Minneapolis and helping launch Mystery Science Theater 3000.
