As previously reported, hit film-riffing series Mystery Science Theater 3000 returns to brand new sections. Although the first two seasons of the revival of the franchise were produced by and distributed on Netflix, season 13 of the show will be available exclusively on their Gizmoplex platform, a brand new digital theater experience for MST3K fans. Today is Turkey’s Day, a central place in the fandom (and a happy one for those celebrating), the feature films that will be riffed on in season 13 of Mystery Science Theater 3000 were confirmed by the series today, where the full list you can find below!
“It will have a different feel than just, say, a Netflix with just more MST3K on it because we do specific events during the premiere, “series creator Joel Hodgson told ComicBook.com earlier about the new platform.” It should feel different, because it’s just not a bunch of tiles where you click on them and you see more MST; it should feel different than that. “Gizmoplex and the new season of the series will also experiment a bit, as more than one host will attend the show, including the first female host in a MST3K TV show (albeit one that is already familiar to fans, after traveling with the roadshow). Hodgson also confirmed that he will return as his character to also host at least one episode.
Check out the full list of MST3K season 13 episodes below along with their synopsis.
