Netflix Cancels MST3K

It’s been over a year since the twelfth season of Mystery Science Theater 3000 hit Netflix. And today series creator Joel Hodgson confirmed to Den of Geek that season 13 isn’t happening.

At least not on Netflix.

Hodgson says:

As some of you might have guessed, we won’t be making new seasons of the show for Netflix. However, I want you to know that we’ve had a wonderful time working with the Netflix team, and will always be grateful to them. After all, they gave us the opportunity to spend the past few years aboard the Satellite of Love, and made it possible for new generations to discover the joys of riffing cheesy movies with your friends.”

I couldn’t be more grateful or proud to our incredible cast and our wonderful crew for bringing this incarnation of the show to life, and hope that we’ll get the chance to continue collaborating on MST3K as we enter our next chapter.”

Now, I know you might have questions about the future of Mystery Science Theater, but as you’ve seen over the last four years, we are just as dedicated to keeping MST3K alive as ever. And I want to remind you that there are still lots of options for us to explore in the years to come. This isn’t our first rodeo! So, while this might be the end of the first chapter of bringing back MST3K, don’t worry: it’s not the last chapter.”

All is not lost though as both the classic and recent revival episodes are still streaming over on Netflix so we can still check those out whenever we feel like it.

    Never could get into the show. Maybe it’s changed over the years, but it doesn’t seem as though they had any respect or reverence for the films they mocked. And many of the films they did were actually pretty good. On the other hand, Svengoolie shows films that they seem to enjoy and hold a high regard for, while being informative and entertaining. That’s a much better approach, as far as I’m concerned.
