As previously reported, the hit movie riff series Mystery Science Theater 3000 will be back for brand new episodes. Although the first two seasons of the franchise’s revival were produced and distributed on Netflix, season 13 of the show will be available exclusively on its Gizmoplex platform, an entirely new digital theater experience for MST3K fans. Today is Turkey Day, a pivotal place in the fandom (and happy for those who celebrate), the feature films to be played in Mystery Science Theater 3000 season 13 were confirmed by today’s series, the full list for which you can find below!
“It will have a different feel than, for example, a Netflix with more MST3K on it, because we will do specific events during the premiere, “series creator Joel Hodgson previously told ComicBook.com about the new platform.” It should feel different, because it’s not a bunch of tiles where you click on them and you look more MST; It should feel different than that. “The Gizmoplex and the show’s new season will also experiment a bit, as more than one host will be participating in the show, including the first female host in a MST3K TV show (although one that is already familiar to fans, having traveled with the roadshow). Hodgson also confirmed that he will return as his character to host at least one episode as well.
