Quote from: DeadlineFry, Leela and Bender are set for more 31st century adventures. After months of negotiations, Hulu has finalized deals for 20 new episodes of Matt Groening and David X. Cohen's cult animated sci-fi comedy Futurama to premiere in 2023 on the streamer. In addition to Groening and Cohen, set to come back is the majority of the series' voice cast, including Billy West, Katey Sagal, Tress MacNeille, Maurice LaMarche, Lauren Tom, Phil LaMarr and David Herman.Missing from the list is one of the three lead voice actors, John DiMaggio, who voices foul-mouthed robot Bender among half a dozen characters. The role is currently being recast ahead of the first table read on Monday. The decision was made after DiMaggio's negotiations with Futurama studio 20th Television Animation came to a standstill though there is a desire on both sides to have him rejoin the cast and reprise his role.

Quote from: Alberon on February 09, 2022, 11:03:30 PMWhile it'd be nice to get all the voice cast back, the writers are at least as important. While we'll never get back to the golden age of the first four seasons if they can match the later ones there will at least be some good episodes in the mix.
Quote from: BritishHobo on February 10, 2022, 08:45:56 AMI don't really remember much of the final final revoot series. A lot of people seem to say the finale was perfect and shouldn't be ruined, but the Leela/Fry romance has been completed and then rebooted so many times that I don't really care any more to be honest.

QuoteIn an August 2013 interview with Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Katey Sagal said regarding the series finale, "So I don't believe it... I just hold out hope for it because it has such a huge fan base, it's such a smart show, and why wouldn't somebody want to keep making that show; so that's my thought, I'm just in denial that it's over". Sagal also mentioned during the same interview that Groening told her at Comic-Con that "we'll find a place" and "don't worry, it's not going to end"

Quote from: Video Game Fan 2000 on February 10, 2022, 11:56:20 AMSomeone did some research on what memes are popular and noticed that people still use Shut Up And Take My Money and Fry narrowing his eyes. Then they asked their parents what show those are from.
