By on December 12, 2015


Mystery Science Theater 3000 Kickstarter is finally happening! The cult classic is gearing up for its official reboot thanks to its Kickstarter initiative. The project successfully secured $5,764,229 from 48,270 backers! And celebrities all over express interest in being in the show in some form or another.

A recent update to the Kickstarter from series creator Joel Hodgson unveiled a number of celebrities who have expressed interest in cameoing for the new season.

Jack Black, Joel McHale, Bill Hader, Neil Patrick Harries, Jerry Seinfeld and even Mark Hamill have all expressed interest in appearing, though that’s not a confirmation that they will yet. Hodgson also notes that he’s hoping more comedians will reach out for roles—on his list was Tina Fey, Lily Tomlin, Amy Poehler and Amy Schumer.

Many stars already have been confirmed to be in the show including Patton Oswalt and Felicia Day.

The original $2 million campaign goal would fund three full-length episodes, and $5.5 million would fund a season of 12 episodes.
