The long-awaited sixth season of Futurama premieres Thursday, June 24 at 10pm / 9c. Awesome, right? Right. But that's in like fifty days. How are you supposed to not suffocate under the weight of your own anticipation?
Well, bad news, everyone! Every weekday from now until the premiere (Which is an hour, did I mention that? Yeah, the premiere is an hour!), we'll be posting stills, storyboards, videos and other never-before-seen junk from the new episodes to help make the waiting a little easier. It all starts today, with this still from the premiere episode, which is appropriately called "Rebirth." (Click to enlarge)
Check back here every weekday until June 24 for more Futurama exclusives.

Interesting that Speedy Gonzalez is there. His classic cartoons never show up on TV anymore. I wonder what types of cartoons he's going to be involved in with this new thing. The animator says Marisol and Petunia are her personal favorites.
