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