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?
