Good news, everyone?
Over the last week, several sources from within the animation business have indicated to us that there is renewed talk at FOX about bringing fresh Futurama content directly to DVD. We corroborated this with other sources close to the show before publishing the information.
The talk is of course still in a preliminary stage. Options reported to us include one or more Futurama movies in case of a go-ahead.
Even though Futurama is not sure to return and the likelihood of its return is currently unknown, this is the first time in the past few years that we have heard of Futurama being discussed at the upper levels of FOX. They'll likely have a good look at the sales of the upcoming Futurama Monster Robot Maniac Fun Collection.
As soon as we get more information on the Direct to DVD story, we'll let you know right here.
