The cult sci-fi/comedy series "Mystery Science Theater 3000" is back!

Netflix has released the first trailer for the all-new season of MST3K reboot, featuring comedian Jonah Ray (The Nerdist Podcast) as the new host aboard the "Satellite of Love" with actress Felicia Day (The Guild, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog) and comedian Patton Oswalt (Ratatouille, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) co-starring as new side characters, Kinga Forrester and her henchman, TV's Son of TV's Frank.

The reboot/revival, in which original creator Joel Hodgson is still the main executive producer and showrunner, continues its brand of kooky comedy as a new set of old cheesy B-movies will be lampooned and endlessly mocked by the new host "Jonah Heston" and his droid companions, Crow T. Robot and Tom Servo.

MST3K originally ended its run in 1999 after ten seasons on Comedy Central and the Sci-Fi Channel. In 2015, Hodgson launched a successful Kickstarter campaign with the goal of bringing back the cult series for a new season. That, of course, led to a distribution deal with Netflix, which includes 14 new episodes and a holiday special.

"Mystery Science Theater 3000" is scheduled to premiere Friday, April 14th on Netflix.
