Futurama Lives!

Futurama Lives!

Six years after it was brusquely dumped by Fox, “Futurama” has found a new home at Comedy Central.
Collider first got wind of the news on the weekend, with Variety confirming their scoop (without credit, of course) this morning.

The show, which has become somewhat of a DVD megahit, will love on in 26 lavishly-coloured new episodes set to air 2010.

“It’s sweet, and basically everybody who has worked on the show wants to come back,” Creator Matt Groening said. “I choose to believe it’s more than the economic situation. People had a good time working on this show.”

After “Futurama” ended its run, 20th Century Fox TV produced four new “Futurama” segs for DVD, which first spurred talk of a series revival.

“It was a little bit of putting our toe in the water to see what sort of response we could get,” said 20th Century Fox TV chairman Gary Newman. “We discovered that, like ‘Family Guy,’ there’s a passionate core audience and a tremendous pent-up demand to see more ‘Futurama.’ ”

Somewhere, in a steel company office on the other side of Australia, Weeksy is smiling – and for numerous reasons.
