With less than a week until its epic Kickstarter campaign endsMystery Science Theater 3000 is currently nearing $4 million thanks to 32,000 backers.

Mystery Science Theater 3000 logoCreator Joel Hodgson teamed up with Shout! Factory to launch the campaign to bring back the hit series, which ended in 1999. The original $2 million funding goal would fund three full-length episodes, and $5.5 million would fund a season of 12 episodes.

Rewards range from a MST3K information club membership certificate for a pledge of $10 or more, to a pretty sweet VIP package including a position as an executive producer for the full new season for a pledge of $10,000/$25,000 or more (listed as $10,000, due to Kickstarter limitations).

Adding more excitement towards not only its franchise, but also another sci-fi series, the Mystery Science Theater gang teamed up with Funny or Die to release a “leaked video” of Crow T Robot & Tom Servo auditioning for the upcoming film, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Check out the hilarious clip below.

The campaign is set to close this Saturday (December 12th).
