Futurama Is Coming Back!
Six years after getting the unceremonious chop from culture-tards at Fox, Futurama is coming back on Comedy Central!
TO be fair, it took us a while to warm to Groening’s other child here at oTB, but once it hit its stride, it was flying. Or space-travelling at least.
Entertainment Weekly states that a spokesperson for 20th Century Fox Television has ordered 26 new episodes of the series to begin airing in 2010.
Apparently, Bender & Co.’s stellar exploits on the recent straight-to-DVD specials and reruns on Comedy Central were the reason for its revival.
Daddy to the franchise Matt Groening said: “We’re thrilled Futurama is coming back. We now have only 25,766 episodes to make before we catch up with Bender and Fry in the year 3000.”
We can’t wait.
