For up-to-date information on the new Futurama movies/episodes, please go to our article 'Bender's big score (+3 more)'.

Lots and lots of things were said in this update, but all of them turned out to be wrong. For archival purposes, I wont delete it. But the conversation involving the topic is closed, and please take note to the two updates made at the bottom of this news piece. Thanks, and sorry for any confusion.

Our friend Billy West has once again spilled the beans. According to a post he made on his message board, Futurama is going to be renewed for television with 26 episodes. No word as to what station it will be on, who will rejoin the cast, or whether it'll be two seasons that would consist of 13 episodes each or one HUGE season of 26 episodes. Please keep in mind though, all this information is still very unofficial. Nothing is down on paper. No contracts signed. Nada. NOTHING. But, it's still pretty awesome.
I'm this close to selling my show--''Billy Bastard--Amateur Human Being,'' And the other good news is that they're doing 26 new episodes of ''Futurama'' for TV and we're hammering out the deal now. The original plan was to have the DVD's first but that's no longer the case.I'm totaly jammed dude.

Greetings from the year 3000! It still sucks!

I'm getting different bits of info that say this news may not be the case.There IS something up Futurama project wise but but it might be the DVD's still.It's hard to keep up with things--but I'll try to do better.

So there you have it folks, the return of Futurama as a series may not be the case as of right now. In related news that backs up the idea of Futurama coming to DVD rather than TV, Bill Morrison recently spoke to a fan about how the Futurama Movie script is almost finished at a convention in Germany. Woot.

Update 2: (mArc)
Another well-informed source tells us that there was no basis in reality for the 26 episode rumor. The plan to make direct-to-DVD movies is still existing.

Update 3: (Jon)
Bill Morrison was misquoted as to say that the Futurama script is almost finished, and rather was speaking about a Simpsons Movie script. As of now, there's no Futurama script.

Dr. Sarah Greenwald of Appalachian State University and was able to land an interview with Futurama/Simpsons writer Jeff Westbrook, which she has now published a transcript of. As a Princeton and Harvard graduate with a PhD in computer science, Jeff is one of the science-heavy contributors to Futurama. In the interview he gives some new information on the alien languages, on the logical problems of the Farnsworth Parabox and on some background math jokes. He also explains how he ended up writing in Hollywood. Have a read.
