Originally posted by Collider.com Good news everybody! An inside source has revealed exclusively to Collider that “Futurama” has been given a 13 episode order by Comedy Central. Though still technically a rumor at this point, word is that “Futurama” production offices have already opened and that casting is about to move forward.
This should be a welcome surprise to fans of the show who have already gone through the series’ cancellation and resurrection as direct-to-DVD movies.
Look for official word in the very near future. Though animation has a big lead time, I would guess on some kind of “Futurama” presence at Comic Con next month.
Originally posted by odessasteps I loved the show, but I had "said goodbye" to it and I liked how they ended the series.
I am happy it is coming back due to the total crap they show on TV now, but I loved the final episode and felt it was a great way to end the show (I did not watch the subsequent movies after). I will watch it, but I have my fears.
Actually, it was not surprising at all. Wilson is his best friend and closest confidant. It would make sense for him to listen to Wilson over his boss and underlings. it was a good show but not great for me.
