BIG NEWS: MST3K SEASON 12 will premiere on TURKEY DAY (November 22)!
Dear MST3K Revival League,
Hey, it's Joel again. How are you? Things have been pretty amazing around the Alternaversal offices for the last couple of months, and super busy. It’s also been a very creative time, which is what I love most about my job.
Last time I updated you, we were in post-production for Season 12, and this week we just delivered all the new episodes to Netflix. But over the last two months, we also put out the first issue of our new Mystery Science Theater 3000 comic book, visited DragonCon for a bunch of panels and events, and, of course, have been getting ready to hit the road for our big MST3K LIVE: 30th Anniversary Tour, which kicks off on October 9th. Yowza!
So yeah, I guess what I'm trying to say is: it feels like MST3K is in a really good place these days, and that's thanks to all of you.
Anyway, I've been working on an update to send out later this week with a few more deets, but this morning, I've got a big announcement to share, and I didn't want to wait... because this is awesome!
See, as most of you probably know, the first episode of Mystery Science Theater aired on Minneapolis' KTMA on Thanksgiving Day – or Turkey Day, as we have come to call it – way back in 1988.
That means that this year, on Thanksgiving, our little show turns thirty!
And ever since #WeBroughtBackMST3K together, it's been really important to me to do something special to celebrate such a big milestone.
That's why I wanted to personally let you know that...
The new season of Mystery Science Theater 3000 will premiere on Netflix on Thursday, November 22, 2018!
It's a Turkey Day Miracle, y'all!
This Thanksgiving, Netflix will serve up six brand-new episodes of Mystery Science Theater. That means you can binge-eat turkey and binge-view movie cheese at the same time... and that we'll have a new season of MST3K, just in time for our 30th Anniversary!
You can read a little more about it over at The AV Club, but I'm really pleased with how the new season turned out, and think they might be some of our best episodes yet, so I can't wait for you to see them.
So yeah, that's the big news for today… but I'll have more updates for you later this week, because there are a few things I want to share before our tour starts.
So, stay tuned!
Cheers & Thanks,
