Mystery Science Theater 3000
Date canceled: November 2019
After airing its original run on KTMA-TV, Comedy Central, and The Sci-Fi Channel from 1988 to 1999, Netflix ordered two seasons of the show: the eight-episode Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return, which debuted in 2017; and the six-episode MST3K: The Gauntlet that premiered in 2018. But in November 2019, Jonah Ray, host of the new MST3K, tweeted that Netflix had cancelled the show, which was later confirmed by the streaming service. As usual, Netflix didn’t offer any explanation about the cancellation, so we could only assume that the revival series didn’t attract enough viewers to get a third season.
