The Return of MST3K Is Officially Funded and Jonah Ray Will Be Its New Host

Yep, this all makes sense to us.

Only a few days after Mystery Science Theater 3000 creator Joel Hodgson announced a Kickstarter campaign to bring back MST3K, the $2 million goal to make 3 brand new episodes of the show has been reached. 

With thousands of dollars pouring in literally by the minute, reaching the original goal was inevitable. Now, with 25 days left on the campaign, the stretch goal of $5.5 million for 12 new episodes of MST3K seems very attainable.

The other bit of great MST3K news should even make it seem more enticing to have more and more new feature length episodes. 

Announced this morning, Jonah Ray will be the new host of the new MST3K, complete with jumpsuit and all. This is a pretty fitting choice given that Jonah’s a huge MST3K fan as well as having the hosting thing down per Nerdist podcasts and The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail.

So, knowing all of that, please keep contributing to the campaign as much as possible to make this new season of MST3K as big as possible.
