New Futurama Episodes

By Dave

Oh please let this be true, after so many rumors that had nothing ever come from them, I had basically given up hope on seeing new Futurama content.

I am one of the people that LOVED Futurama when it was on television. It looks like Futurama could be back on television in 2008 for at least 13 new episodes. It seems Katey Sagal (Leela) confirmed it on The Late Late Show, and then the New York Post confirmed it, and so did John DiMaggio (Bender). I am so excited about this development. I had been hoping for a while that DVD sales would bring back the show just like they did with Family Guy.

The quirky animated show from “Simpsons” creator Matt Groening was canceled by Fox about two years ago, but will return with at least 13 new episodes on Comedy Central by 2008.

This is only the second time in television history that a show sent to TV’s trash heap has been resurrected. Curiously, the first was “Family Guy,” also an animated Fox show.

The tale of “Futurama’s” dramatic revival roughly follows that same path that “Family Guy” did.

In both cases, the shows have been successfully airing on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim late-night programming block. They both also turned into hot-selling DVD box sets.

Anyone else happy? So far no word on what this means for the Futurama movie(s) they were planning, but any new Futurama content is all thumbs up from me.
