FUTURAMA is back for another season!
« on: June 26, 2006, 08:11:06 PM »
More `Futurama' in future

Published June 25, 2006

Three years after "Futurama" last aired on prime time, cable channel Comedy Central has signed a deal to resurrect the former Fox animated series for a minimum 13-episode run.

Comedy Central will start airing the new shows in 2008.

The new episodes are part of a larger deal Comedy Central made with 20th Century Fox last year, when it bought the syndicated rights to "Futurama's" 72-episode library.

The offbeat show was the brainchild of "The Simpsons" mastermind Matt Groening and writer David X. Cohen and debuted on Fox in March 1999. The series revolved around Fry, a pizza delivery boy who is accidentally frozen for a thousand years. When he wakes up in the year 3000, he befriends a sassy one-eyed pilot, Leela, and a cranky robot, Bender, who both work for an intergalactic delivery service run by a distant nephew of Fry's.

In August 2003, after five seasons and three Emmys, including the 2002 award for best animated series, "Futurama" was canceled due to low ratings.
