Wow, Netflix, wow, rudeness does not suit you.

It recently came out that the streaming service was canceling the sci-fi comedy series Mystery Science Theater 3000. Not only that, the news broke on Thanksgiving week, when the show traditionally has its marathons and posts new seasons, this adding insult to injury.

Often abbreviated to just MST3K, the most recent iteration of the show follows host Jonah Ray as he must watch terrible sci-fi B-movies and riff them with the help of his co-hosts. Besides Jonah Ray Rodrigues, the show also starred Felicia Day and Patton Oswalt as the main antagonists.

The good news is that the show’s crest Joel Hodgson still owns the rights to the show, so he could work with another streaming service to get more seasons made. He even tweeted as such once the news broke:

Host Jonah Ray is taking the news with good humor, commiserating with the other beloved but canceled shows of Netflix:

Netflix still has two seasons of the show available on their platform. No word yet as to whether we can expect a new season in 2020.
