Comedy Central Orders 26 New Episodes of Futurama to Air in 2010

Futurama Is Back: Yay? Or Why?

In a turn that sounds an awful lot like the rebirth of Family Guy, the animated series Futurama is being resurrected on Comedy Central. Creators Matt Groening and David X. Cohen are back on board for a whopping 26 new episodes of the series, which should start airing in 2010.

Since Fox canceled the series in 2003, it's lived on through four straight-to-DVD movies. Apparently, those movies — and the series' performance in reruns and on DVD — made Comedy Central think there was a market for some all-new Futurama. So now I'm wondering: is there? Or does this news just baffle you?

So happy about this! Futarama is one of my favorite shows, it never should have been cancelled in the first place!

YAY!!. I love the show and alaways hoped that it would get picked up for new episodes. I love the episode where Brannigan tries to take on the Neutral planet and when they rescue the Professor from the Old Folks Home

Bender: "I thought I saw a 2!"Fry: "It's ok Bender, 2 doesn't exist!"Other than a few odd episodes, easily one of the best comedies on TV.

SO stoked! Seriously! I'm pretty sure I've seen every episode several times, and every time I watch, I wish they'd bring it back. I agree that it has the 'smart' humor, but it also has the really funny toilet humor too. One of my favorite scenes is when Bender eats some of the potato chips with olestra in them and then literally poos bricks. Hysterical! (and no, I'm not actually 13).

I'm not a fan of the show, but come on - to compare it in any way to the worst show ever in the history of tv (yeah, that would be FG) is just unfair!

Me too -- Jurrasic Bark is so sad :(I love the epi where Fry makes a deal with the robot devil for his hands so he can play that weird instrument for Lila, and then gives them back and plays it for her anyhow. so sweet.AND, this:Fry: 'No! Leela, that's what I must of done! I moved the stars themselves to write you a love note in the sky.
