Now that a new season of Mystery Science Theater 3000 is actually coming up in the not too distant future, Netflix has released a trailer giving MSTies their first look at the rebooted 11th season of the cult-classic show. Much of the trailer is devoted to setup for the new season, introducing new Mads Kinga Forrester (Felicia Day) and TV’s Son of TV’s Frank (Patton Oswalt) and their sinister plan to secure the Forrester family legacy by kidnapping hapless Gizmonic Institute employee Jonah Heston (Jonah Ray) and forcing him to watch bad movies beamed from the dark side of the moon along with his robot friends Crow T. Robot (Hampton Yount) and Tom Servo (Baron Vaughn).

Observant fans will also notice the reveal of the first movie of the new season—the 1961 Danish monster movie Reptilicus, one of those titles you can’t believe has never been riffed before—as well as a cameo by Mary Jo Pehl as Kinga’s grandma, Pearl.
