Exclusive: Comedy Central Goes Back to the FUTURAMA

by     Posted 4 years, 314 days ago

futurama_bender_s_big_score_image__1_.jpgGood news everybody! An inside source has revealed exclusively to Collider that “Futurama” has been given a 13 episode order by Comedy Central. Though still technically a rumor at this point, word is that “Futurama” production offices have already opened and that casting is about to move forward.

This should be a welcome surprise to fans of the show who have already gone through the series’ cancellation and resurrection as direct-to-DVD movies.

Look for official word in the very near future. Though animation has a big lead time, I would guess on some kind of “Futurama” presence at Comic Con next month.

If you’re excited by the news, say it in the comments below!

    This is great news!

    Loved watching this show on Adult Swim more for some reason though but thats just a minor quirk. So happy that this great show will once again rise from its graceful death (although its been living quite vibrantly in re-runs).

    Can't wait.

    • yup

      agreed. adult swim somehow brings the best out of shows

    For the love of God let this be true! I didn't get into Futurama when it first came out, but I've been watching it since and plan to get the DVDs I'm missing when I can afford it. I would LOVE to see the series make a comeback as regular episodes again. Please oh please oh please!

    OMFG! After spending the last week watching the 4 movies over and over with my son and other half, and spending 45 minutes last night trying to figure out what to watch, only able to think "Needs more new Futurama," this is possibly the greatest news ever, or at least the greatest coincidental news ever. And they say the Space Pope doesn't answer prayers!

    I really hope this is true. Jurassic Bark and Luck of the Fryish are probably the only two episodes of an animated show that have made me misty-eyed. What a great show.

    When would the episodes air? They'd really have to push it in order to get the first episode to air in March 2010.

    I am really excited by the news, but can someone give me an idea as to what the poster means when he says,"casting is about to move forward.". They already have a cast. Does he just mean that they need to resign the existing cast to new deals?
