Futurama

007 reminded me of this during one of his comments on the MM thread. I love futurama, much more than the simpsons (at least the last 4 or 5 years of hte simpsons). i heard futruama was suppose to be coming back. where is it? they have put out a couple futurama movies which have been funny, but i want the show to come back on air. does anyone know when this is suppose to happen? i say can the simpson (which hasn't been funny for the past 4 years) and bring back "the Rama!!!"

Well i know they're bringing it back. there were alot of anouncements about it on adult swim and comedy central. in fact, the reason they stopped showing it on adult swim was so they could give it more exposure on comedy central to hype its return. then they made the two movies.... now i'm still waiting on the show to start back. they are suppose to i just dont know when

i got this off imdb.com.....

Is Futurama coming back?
The show has 4 direct-to-video movies in production, the first of which is set to be released around Christmas 2007. Countless articles have stated that the show has 16 or 13 new episodes in production to air on Comedy Central in 2008 when the network obtains the rights to air the old episodes. However this isn't the case. The new episodes will merely be the 4 straight-to-DVD movies split into 4 episodes each (16 in total) and aired on TV with new material added to make them work as episodes. This has recently been confirmed by Matt Groening in an interview in which he said "I was frustrated when it got cancelled, but Fox, 20th Television is the one who came back and said, 'Would you like to do a DVD movie?'" Groening recalled. We said, 'Let's do two' and they said, 'Well, why not three?' and we said, 'Well, why not four?' and they said, 'Okay, four' and then that's it."

After this, Comedy Central won a bid to air the films as new "Futurama" episodes. "We're writing them as movies and then we're going to chop them up, reconfigure them, write new material and try to make them work as separate episodes. Chopped up is an indelicate way of putting it but we are doing them as movies and then we are reconfiguring them and writing new material and narration and this that and the other so that they'll stand on their own as episodes."

Fucking FOX always cancels good shows! If you watch the first futurama movie "Bender's Big-something" you'll see a LOT of the humor/sarcasm/anger toward fox for canceling them...
