    Default Futurama Returns To Television!

    It's official: 'Futurama' is reborn!

    Holy Bender Bending Rodríguez!

    Six years after getting axed by Fox, Futurama is being resurrected on Comedy Central.

    A spokesperson for 20th Century Fox Television confirms that the cable net has ordered 26 new episodes of Matt Groening and David X. Cohen's late, great animated series to air beginning in 2010. The studio cites Futurama's "blockbuster" performance on DVD and in reruns on Comedy Central as the reason for its rebirth.

    Hmmm
    ... sound familiar?

    "When we brought back Family Guy several years ago, everyone said that it was a once in a lifetime thing -- that canceled series stay canceled and cannot be revived," 20th Century Fox TV Chairmen Gary Newman and Dana Walden said in a joint statement. "But Futurama was another series that fans simply demanded we bring back, and we couldn’t have been happier when Matt and David agreed that there were many more stories yet to tell."

    Adds Groening: "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."

    I have a hunch Groening isn't the only one doing a happy dance.
    Good news, everyone!!!
    Take me out to the black, tell 'em I ain't coming back. Burn the land and boil the sea, you can't take the sky from me.

    It's great news, but the new movies weren't all that great.

    I may have not read it correctly, but are they coming back to the Fox Network, or airing along side the reruns on Comedy Central? I supposed they implied that Fox would be taking it back, and not just producing it.

    Sweet!

    Between this, the return of Ben Reilly, and the recent changes made to simplify Magic: the Gathering, the last two days have been good to me! Which, sadly, scares the crap outta me.

    That's because you are used to life defecating on you.

    OTOH, I really wish they'd put it back on Fox. It does the series injustice to not put it back there.

    Wrong thread. Now it will be canceled before 2010.

    I wish Major Cold would stop posting wishes in the wrong thread.
