For awhile now, fans of the cult hit MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 have been wondering and hoping what it might take for their beloved series to make a return in this age of revivals and they now have received their answer - a bit of their hard-earned money and plenty of support.

Shout Factory has announced that they've purchased MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 from Best Brains Inc., and taken over ownership of the proprietary rights to the franchise, including brand assets and global intellectual property, and together with series creator Joel Hodgson they have launched a Kickstarter campaign with the hopes of raising the funding for a new 12-episode season.

$5.5 million is their target goal, but they'll settle for at least $2 million in order to make three fresh episodes. Each $1.1 million they raise after that will lead to three more episodes until they reach their dream of knocking out all 12.

As usual, there are a number of perks if you contribute to go along with the satisfaction of knowing you did your part to help bring MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 back, so, if you were ever a fan of the show and desired more after it was eventually cancelled back in 1999, here's your chance to make it happen.

Hikeeba!

TV's Frank! Must come back at least for an episode and I hope this is a Joel version, nothing against Mike but Joel is the original Coke. Cinimatic Titanic is on Amazon free if you are a Prime member you should really check it out it was almost as good as MST3K. Off to the Kickstarter page, finally Kickstarter being used for something good.

The Kickstarter made 1.4 million dollars in 30 hours. It's going to hit its goal very soon.
