‘Futurama’ revival is on the way with most of the original cast returning


20th Television Animation and Hulu have announced that the animated sci-fi series ‘Futurama’ is making a comeback.

It’s not the first time that ‘Futurama’ has been revived.

After its original run from 1999 to 2003, it was revived from 2007 to 2009 as four films.

These were later broken up into episodes, making up a fifth season for ‘Futurama’ – then the show was revived again in 2010.

This latest revival comes from the original show creators, Matt Groening and David X. Cohen.

There will be 20 episodes in all, with production on them to commence in February.

They’ll air on Hulu in 2023 (we can expect them on Disney+ on this side of the pond).

Original voice cast members Billy West, Katey Sagal, Tress MacNeille, Maurice LaMarche, Lauren Tom, Phil LaMarr and David Herman are all coming back.

John DiMaggio, who voiced Bender and several minor characters, is not currently attached.

Presumably, the actor is still in talks as he shared this on Twitter, following fans’ outcry that he may not be part of the ‘Futurama’ revival.

David X. Cohen said: “I’m thrilled to have another chance to think about the future… or really anything other than the present.”

Matt Groening added: “It’s a true honor to announce the triumphant return of ‘Futurama’ one more time before we get cancelled abruptly again.”
