The social streaming site will host 38 classic episodes of MTS3K in a six-day marathon beginning June 26 at 11 a.m. PT and ending July 3 on Shout! Factory TV’s new Twitch channel.
Twitch notes that the six-day event is the most extensive collection of MST3K episodes ever assembled for a marathon, featuring episodes that originally aired on Comedy Central and Sci-Fi Channel from 1989 to 1997.
The success of TV marathons on Twitch illustrate how our community thrives on interactive programming, as they connect over memes, nostalgia, and the social experience in chat, said Ben Vallat, VP of Business Development, Twitch. Because Mystery Science Theater 3000 mirrors the viewing experience on Twitch given that the show is all about people watching other people and making comments, it is right in the wheelhouse of our viewers and should make for a memorable communal event.
The MST3K event is the latest in a string of TV marathons on Twitch, including Mister Rogers Neighborhood, The Joy of Painting with Bob Ross, Sabans Power Rangers, and more.
We can promise one thing: IT’S BOLD.
