Futurama Returning With New Episodes in 2008

June 23, 2006

futurama-returning.jpgHere's some good news for Futurama fans. In a deal with Comedy Central, new episodes of the series are set to begin production and start airing in 2008:

Comedy Central has resurrected the former Fox animated series from "The Simpsons" creator Matt Groening and David X. Cohen. At least 13 new episodes will be produced for the first time since the series originally ran from 1999-2003. New and old episodes will begin airing in 2008 on Comedy Central. Actors Billy West, Katey Sagal and John DiMaggio have agreed to return as voices for "Futurama."

Best of all about the renewal is that it spawned an inspired new idea from Seth MacFarlane: Future Guy! It's like Futurama, but everyone's stockier, there's a talking dog, and people make snide comments like this about it to get into arguments about which is funnier.
