I have not read this myself but my Sister sent me an email saying:
Variety is reporting that 20th Century Fox TV is in early discussions to go back into production with Futurama, the Emmy-winning animated series that ran on Fox from March 1999 to August 2003, giving it a Family Guy-style resuscitation. Based on the misadventures of Fry, Leela and Bender, Futurama is set in the year 3000, at which time Lindsay Lohan will have stopped making "news." But until then....
I would LOVE this to happen. And maybe FOX will give it a better timeslot this time! But keep it on Sundays.
(btw can someone change the title, somehow an "s" worked its way in there.)

You know, and this is just a thought mind you, maybe FOX should consider supporting shows with a small devoted audience and help them build a larger fanbase BEFORE they cancel them. Then, they wouldn't have to go through the process of trying to put the show back together years after the fact.
I EAGERLY AWAIT THE RETURN OF ANDY RICHTER CONTROLS THE UNIVERSE IN 2008!

It makes me confused and rather angry that the FOX network will have shows that can win *EMMYS* and they will still cancel that show. ("Bite my shinny metal ass!"- me to FOX)
From the erratic way the show was originally aired, FOX has only itself to blame if no one was able to find and watch this fine and funny show. I remember reading interviews with Matt Groening with him talking about his struggle with FOX over the show's time slot.
