Futurama

Futurama is coming back with 26 new episodes in 2010! Yay! The dvd movies were cool, but it'll be nice to have it back as a normal show.

Below from: http://ausiellofiles.ew.com/2009/06/its ... ming+back!
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. (That's your cue to start filling up the comments section.)

The Simpsons is on season 21 or something.
I always enjoyed Futurama when I caught it. Glad this will be around again.

I just caught a series of them on Comedy Central that I had not seen before. I wonder if it was from the DVD movies.
Memoir wouldn't do that...

That show was how I got my wife to actually like animated sit-coms. All hail the triumphant return!
I may not be perfect, but parts of me are pretty awesome.
