The fans have spoken, and Mystery Science Theatre 3000 is coming back to life for a brand-new season thanks to a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign. So we caught up with the new star to talk about want fans can expect.

The new season will stream on Netflix, and the creative team has added geek demigods Felicia Day and Patton Oswalt to the mix for the new run. We sat down with Day to talk about the new season, as well as what drew her into the world of MST3K. From her first experience with the series (Santa Claus vs. The Martians) to the new paradigm they’re introducing for the season, Day digs into all of it.

She also talks about why the series has endured for so many decades (seriously, it first premiered in 1988!) and how the team can always find the good in these “bad” movies.
