Joel Hodgson is in the process of rebooting Mystery Science Theater 3000. However, as he films new episodes, he’ll also wax nostalgic over the show’s initial iteration. For one night only, on June 28th in Minneapolis, Hodgson along with the rest of MST3K’s original cast will reunite.
The reunion comes in celebration of Michael J. Nelson’s post-MST3K project RiffTrak. Along with Hodgson and Nelson, Trace Beaulieu (Crow T. Robot), Frank Conniff (TV’s Frank), Kevin Murphy (Tom Servo), and Mary Jo Pehl (Pearl Forrester) are all confirmed to participate. Jonah Ray, who will host the show’s new iteration, will also appear.
RiffTrax Live: MST3K Reunion Show will be broadcast in theaters across the country on June 28th at 8 PM ET/7 PM CT, followed by an encore showing on July 12th at 7:30 PM local time. Tickets go on sale April 15th.
As for the MST3K revival, Ray will star alongside Felicia Day and Patton Oswalt as the new Mads. After being successfully crowd funded, new episodes are expected to premiere latter in the year.
