Futurama To Return?

Sat Jan 07, 2006 8:24 pm

Recently in australia Futurama was bought by another network and has been getting regular Airtime since and now this has just come to my attention:

Secretly I'd been hoping for this to happen since I heard about the network change

Fingers crossed!!

I'm sure they will, The reason it failed so badly in the first place (I think) was Fox put it on late at night so It didn't get very good ratings and they pulled it - The simpsons is still a great show but they've done almost everything and they're running out of good scripts... I mean, I was watching a "New episode" recently and it had a Viewers warning before it, Simpsons never had one of those (I mean, We all know about the hidden adult humour in it but when it's becoming so obvious, What does that say about the writers?) - Futurama is still fresh, There's so many more possibility's!

Well, We've been getting episodes here of them on the channel that sold Futurama to channel 10 - I personally don't watch it because I don't find it the least bit funny, I don't know if they're new or not but I've heard of people saying "Ooooh! new episode of family guy on, bbs" in chatrooms so Maybe (I think they were americans if I remember correctly)

Maybe some americans can confirm this?

Came back in June last year with some new episodes for most of the summer, showed a few weeks of reruns then started some new episodes.


As for a resurrected Futurama, the most credible thing I've read is a straight to DVD movie due out in 2007 (Similar think happened with Family Guy, as they had a straight to DVD movie in the works when Fox brought the show back.). With this season being the last for King of the Hill, it would have been a good idea to go ahead and bring back Futurama to put in its' time slot.
