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.
I wouldn't worry about missing out on Batman next season. He's Timm and Dini's bread and butter and if the DCAU comes to a close in the next few years, you'd better believe Kevin Conroy's Batman will be there.
