Mystery Science Theater 3000 coming to Netflix in April

Original host Joel Hodgson tapped Nerdist favorite Jonah Ray to star as the latest hapless human forced to watch awful movies for science, accompanied by his robot friends Crow and Tom Servo (voiced in the revival by comedian Hampton Yount and "Grace and Frankie" star Baron Vaughn).

The cult classic TV show which pioneered "riffing" - making jokes while watching a bad movie - is coming back with a crowd-funded 11th season on April 14.

In the not-too-distant future, Netflix will be bringing fans a brand-new season of the cult series Mystery Science Theater 3000, and they have announced April 14 as the day MySTie's can watch all 14 episodes.

Jonah Ray is taking on the role of the put-upon movie viewer, with Felicia Day and Patton Oswalt taking up the role of the villains as descendants of Clayton Forrester and TV's Frank. All of the new episodes have been written by Dan Harmon and Joel McHale, creator and actor on Community respectively, under head writer Elliott Kalan, formerly of The Daily Show. One thing we're not too sure about is whether Netflix will follow their usual release strategy of releasing all the episodes at once, or maybe staggering them so fans don't binge them all right away.

There will be celebrity sightings as well; Mark Hamill and Jerry Seinfeld are a few people who are rumored to have signed up for cameos.

Spring can't get here soon enough for new episodes of MST3K.
