It's finally time to crawl back from the rock I've been living under for the past years to announce some exciting news. I never imagined it or even hoped it, but it's happening: Futurama is coming back, baby!
After a long history of revivals for our favorite show, this time the honors go to Hulu, which supposedly ordered 20 brand-new episodes
Both creators are returning for the revival series, as are original cast members Billy West, Katey Sagal, Tress MacNeille, Maurice LaMarche, Lauren Tom and Phil LaMarr. John DiMaggio is currently not involved in the revival. Which would mean that Bender would have to get recast. But rumors say that the producers are still hopeful to get him involved.
“It’s a true honor to announce the triumphant return of Futurama one more time before we get canceled abruptly again,” Groening said in a statement.
Added Cohen, “I’m thrilled to have another chance to think about the future… or really anything other than the present.”
Production will begin this month with an eye towards a 2023 premiere.
