Shout! Factory will release the latest collection of episodes from the cult classic series Mystery Science Theater 3000 this summer.

Officials with Shout! Factory have announced that the company will release Mystery Science Theater 3000 Volume XXXIII on Tuesday, July 28th. The upcoming four-disc set will come a little more than four months after Shout! Factory’s most recent MST3K box set Mystery Science Theater 3000 Volume XXXII. That box set was released March 24th. Mystery Science Theater 3000 Volume XXXIII will feature four more so bad that they’re good movies from the halls of Hollywood’s history. Those movies are: Daddy-O (1958), Earth Versus The Spider (1958), Teen-Age Crime Wave (1955), and Agent for H.A.R.M. (1966). It also includes a pair of bonus shorts with Daddy-O and Earth vs. The Spider in the form of Alphabet Antics and Speech—Using Your Voice respectively. Rounding out the set is its bonus features including the featurettes “Beatnick Blues: Investigating Daddy-O,: “This Movie Has Legs: Looking Back at Earth vs. The Spider,” and “Film It Again, Sam: The Katzman Chronicles.” There are also interviews with actors Tommy Cook and Peter Mark Richman in “Tommy Cook: From Jungle Boy To Teenage Jungle” and “Peter Mark Richman: In H.A.R.M.’s Way.” If all of that isn’t enough for audiences, the mini-posters, theatrical trailers, and hour wraps that have all become standard for MST3K’s box sets over the years are all present here, too.

While Mystery Science Theater 3000 Volume XXXIII won’t be available in stores or online until July 28th, fans can still pre-order the box set now. It can be pre-ordered direct via Shout! Factory’s online store at  Fans that pre-order the set now will get it at a discounted price of $53.97 versus the MSRP of $59.97. Those same fans will also receive a free, exclusive MST3K coaster along with it. To sweeten the deal even more, those fans that pre-order the set now will also get it shipped two weeks ahead of its official release date.
