One week after announcing a premiere date, Netflix has released a teaser trailer for its revival of the beloved, Emmy-nominated Mystery Science Theater 3000 .
The new Satellite of Love cast includes Patton Oswalt (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) as TV’s Son of TV’s Frank, Felicia Day (Supernatural) as Kinga Forrester and new test subject Jonah Ray (Fantasy Hospital). Check out the trailer:
The late-’80s/’90s sci-fi series was originally cancelled after 10 seasons, but creator and original host Joel Hodgson wasn’t ready to quit. Backed by one of the largest Kickstarter campaigns of all time (raising more than $5.7 million), the 12-episode revival will be ready to stream on Friday, April 14.
