Series creator Joel Hodgson announced Wednesday that the show has launched a new Kickstarter campaign to create a new, independent season of the series. The current goal is to raise at least $2 million to create new episodes of the beloved cult show and what Hodgson has dubbed the Gizmoplex, an online platform on which the show and related content will be released in the future. At the time of this publishing, nearly $500,000 has already been raised by over 2,000 backers.
The news comes around six years after the show’s record-breaking Kickstarter campaign to fund a new season, which ultimately aired on Netflix. Netflix then ordered a second season of the show but declined to pick up a third in 2019.
