Currently funded to 9 new episodes. 12 seems likely by the end. The stretch goal is for a 13th holiday episode.
Spoilers: Felicia Day is the new villain.
I used to tape MST3K and Night Stand w/ Dick Dietrich because they were on past my bedtime. It was always such a joy to get to finally watch the tape.

14 episodes funded, ended up over $6.3 million.
I was watching the livestream telethon last night until the end. What a great Kickstarter project they ran. Hell, Penn & Teller showed up in the middle of the telethon to add a 1-off reward to the Kickstarter. They broke the Film & TV category record on Kickstarter with $5.76M (previously held by Veronica Mars), plus another $625K worth of swag on their shop.
I've never felt so engaged by a Kickstarter campaign before. It was superbly executed.

MST3k Viewing party?
They announced at Comic Con this past weekend that they have sealed a distribution deal with Netflix, where it will be available in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the UK and Ireland.
They also announced original cast members would get guest starring in the season:
Mary Jo and Bill will also join the writing team for a few episodes.
14 new episode of MST3K are now on Netflix. Hell yeah!
I am thoroughly enjoying these and I can't get this song out of my head:
That bit in ep1 was when my jaw went a little slack and I thought, "OK, this is fo' srs everything I was hoping for."
(I should probably make a new thread but I'm too lazy)
There's hope for more!
