This could be some of the best news of the day. OK, I may be a little biased since this is one of my favorite shows of all time; but Hulu has announced that they have ordered 20 new episodes of Futurama. That’s right, after just about 10-years from its last episode, Futurama is back!
Futurama Revival Ordered by Hulu
Futurama was originally created by David Cohen and Matt Groening, and guess what? Both are coming back, as well as the original cast members Billy West, Katey Sagal, Tress MacNeille, Maurice LaMarche, Lauren Tom, Phil LaMarr, and David Herma. As of now, there is one cast member’s name that is missing from this list and that is the voice of Bender, John DiMaggio. The new Futurama series should go into production this March with the series scheduled to release in 2023.
From The Press Relase
“I’m thrilled to have another chance to think about the future … or really anything other than the present,” Cohen said. Added Groening: “It’s a true honor to announce the triumphant return of Futurama one more time before we get canceled abruptly again.”
“When presented with the opportunity to bring fans and viewers new episodes of Futurama, we couldn’t wait to dive in. This iconic series helped blaze the trail for the success of adult animation since its initial launch and we look forward to Matt & David continuing to pave the way and further establishing Hulu as the premiere destination for fans of the genre.”Craig Erwich, president of originals at Hulu and ABC Entertainment.
“What I love about animation is that it’s possible for a successful show to take a pause and then resume years later, even on a different platform, and pick up right where it left off. Futurama is one of those shows. The excitement from Hulu about returning Matt and David’s genius creation for all-new episodes has been off the charts. I’m thrilled that this incredible team will get to tell more stories, and that our Planet Express crew will have more adventures together. It’s a win for the fans who have loved the show since the beginning, and for the ones who will now discover it for the very first time.”Marci Proietto, head of animation at producers 20th Television Animation.
