Due to being skeptical, I searched other sources online and found it to appear legit. So to the glee and dismay of all users here this is legit.
Sorry I didn’t sticky this one first at work and saw the other one only.
EDT: In this mods sole opinion: I hope it is literally a shot for shot season 1 remake slowly descending in animation to the original animation through out the season until it matches season 1. That way you’re just watching it loop back from the beginning due to the time button in the last episode of season 10.
“It’s a true honor to announce the triumphant return of Futurama one more time before we get canceled abruptly again.”
What a Groening comment, hahah! Love it.
So this means we're getting Futurella as well?!
I got fruit boobs!
Every nerd's fantasy baby!
Followed shortly after by The Pimpsons and Assorama.
If We Hit That Bullseye, The Rest Of The Dominos Will Fall Like A House Of Cards. Checkmate.
Sweet llamas of the Bahamas! It's happening! Again!
Not to Zoidberg, it isn't!
...Nothing ever happens to Zoidberg. :(
Help! A guinea pig tricked me!
The professor still has one wish left from Pazuzu. It's bugged me for years.
He should wish that he invented the finglonger
Pazuzu isn't a god, he can't make the impossible happen.
A man can dream though. A man can dream.
With my last breath I curse Zoidberg!
ROFL, I cannot read "Pazuzu" without hearing it in my head in the professor's voice.... "Pahzoozoo"
Oooooooo I’d love to see Pazuzu again
Surely this locks down the record for the TV show with most series finales in history.
Can't believe we're getting new seasons of Futurama and Clone High in 2023
Each of the 20 episodes should be in the style of a series finale.
Just in case.
Ten exclusive two episode miniseries.
With how good the three episode movies were? Sign me *the fuck* up
Did you see the pool? They flipped the bitch!
They're rioting at a college level!
Yup, 2 seasons on HBO plus
Can't wait for it to be cancelled again!
See you on another network!
Wait we're getting a new season of Clone High? Explain yourself
No no the line is
We’re getting a new season of Clone High
Woah Woah Woah Woah! woah…. WOAH!!!
This is not my batman glass
Woah, woah, slow down….. what are we getting…?!
And when do we get it!?
Wait no that's not how...
\*inserts cartridge\* WHAT
Oh, God! I'm out of water! I'll never make it this time!!!
I WANT TO LIVE!
Great, now I forgot my wife's face.
This is a good cut.
Scruffy believes in this company *sniff*
Scruffy better be back
>original stars Billy West (Fry) and Katey Sagal (Leela) along with ensemble players who voiced multiple characters Tress MacNeille, Maurice LaMarche, Lauren Tom, Phil LaMarr and **David Herman** will all return.
Good news everyone!
Billy West? What a stupid, phoney made up name.
Where is John Dimaggio? Is he safe?
Some sources are saying he's just working out his contract still. This source says:
>John DiMaggio, who provided the voice behind the wise-cracking robot with the “shiny metal ass” Bender, is finalizing a deal to return as well though a deal has not yet closed.
One I saw said they were prepared to recast if he doesn't sign on, so it certainly sounds like negotiation tactics all around.
Groening is deeply in love with John DiMaggio, there's no way in hell he won't be in the new series
Aren't we all? 🥰
I'm honestly speechless. I didn't expect this today, or ever. I never got to watch the show during either of its runs, so I'm excited for this.
I've never been so happy to hear of a show making more episodes. I've learned to really love a few shows and none as much as Futurama. This brings me so much joy. So many times have passed that people claimed Futurama was coming back, only to find out they were joking for whatever reason.
Truly Unexpected Futurama. The best kind of Futurama!\~
THEY'RE BRINGING BACK THE KAJIGGER!
Scruffy believes in this series.
Fire me, iffn you dare.
I've never seen him so down, or ever before.
These comments are bringing me so much joy.
It just won't stay dead!
Looks like we don't have to avenge them after all!
I'll find Futurama's coffin, get its corpse, and keep it under my mattress to remind me that it's really dead. That'll prove I'm not insane!
The show is returning for 20 brand new episodes with Groening and the original cast returning:
>The series that aired its first five seasons on Fox before being revived for three more at Comedy Central will return to production this month for a 2023 premiere. Following an extended deal-making period, original stars Billy West (Fry) and Katey Sagal (Leela) along with ensemble players who voiced multiple characters Tress MacNeille, Maurice LaMarche, Lauren Tom, Phil LaMarr and David Herman will all return. John DiMaggio, who provided the voice behind the wise-cracking robot with the “shiny metal ass” Bender, is finalizing a deal to return as well though a deal has not yet closed.
>I’m thrilled to have another chance to think about the future … or really anything other than the present,” Cohen said. Added Groening: “It’s a true honor to announce the triumphant return of Futurama one more time before we get canceled abruptly again.”
As of right now, DiMaggio will not be a part of the revival but the hope is that he eventually joins the series
Why wouldn't he join?
Until he says he’s not coming back I’m assuming he just hasn’t signed yet and they’re just working out contract details.
Yeah, I can’t imagine the showrunners agreeing unless they were pretty sure. You never know, but I feel pretty certain it’s just a technicality right now.
I agree, especially since in interviews and podcasts he's been on, he's always saying he loved working on the show, gets on great with the rest of the cast and just enjoys playing Bender (among the many other voices he's behind on the show). So it's likely just legal/bureaucratic stuff.
Also considering he still works with Matt Groening and his team on Disenchantment I don’t see why he wouldn’t come back to this.
Multiple sites are reporting different things but it seems like they're working through contract issues, with THR saying he's finalizing a deal to return
People forget that that voice actors don't stay dormant until a show comes back, they're working on other projects and sign other deals. So there's likely rights, payments, and schedules to work out for DiMaggio to come back.
Put them in the cryotubes!
That's your answer for everything...
Yeah, he's done a lot of stuff over the years.
Wouldn't be surprised if he ends up having schedules oddity if he does a adventure time special for HBO at the same time, among other things.
There probably aren't many animated series that he HASN'T stared or guest-stared in.
Remember when Harry Shearer said he was quitting the Simpsons. Cash.
He does work on Disenchantment, another Groening show, so there's no reason he wouldn't. Probably just working out the contract.
Zog sounds a lot like Bender (not all DiMaggio characters do) but he plays Zog so well.
If he’s not involved, what are we even doing here?
He will, he was on Disenchanted, this is breaking news I think. He would never miss the chance to voice bender again.
He's finalizing a deal to return. Should become official soon.
He knows he’s worth the $$$
Shut up baby, I know it!
Bite my shiny metal axe!
(Presenting this as evidence I guess)
Once you have Billy west you already have most of the voice talent it surprised me when I saw just how many characters he voices in the show
First King of the Hill, now Futurama, it's like people my age are in charge of shit now.
Wait, King of the Hill is getting new episodes too!?!?!
POSSIBLY but they're considering a time skip so...
If it’s something like 10 years could be good
I'm imagining Bobby hill and his wife raising a son in the 2020s.... except he just... aint right.... and it's just tiny hank hill.
I’d love this. The Alley Gang can just be straight up boomers this time. They already were, but still. Lmao.
Mods are gonna have to leave their cryotubes soon with all the posts flooding in about this. 🤣
Us: "Welcome, to the woooorld of tomorrow!!"
Shut up, Terry.
Haven't you ever heard of a little thing called showmanship?
If they recast Bender, he’ll only be 40% John Demaggio.
Bender? That was the other guy.
Bender's name isn't Bonder. It's Bender!
Give the gypsy $10.
Bonder? Is that you?!
Bite my *polished alloy behind.*
He's finalizing his contract per sources
Good news, everyone!
BEST news everyone!!
I wonder if they’ll be an episode where Lrrr accidentally infects Earth with an Omicronian virus and the planet has to quarantine.
Didn't they kind of already do a quarantine episode when Fry brought back the common cold?
"Why don't the healthy humans simply *eat* the weaker ones?"
I knew we haven’t heard the last of Barbados Slim!
I'm feeling very neutral about this
Tell my wife I said… Hello.
Fighting in the comments? Its a beige alert!
Awwww now we have to change the bulbs.
Are you a coward? Or, were you just born with a heart full of neutrality?
All I know is my gut tells me maybe.
I have no strong opinions one way or the other.
/s jk. I'm very excited for this.
I have no strong feelings one way or the other.
What makes a man turn neutral? Lust for gold? Power? Or were you just born with a heart full of neutrality?
The finale was perfect. As was the one before that. And the one before that.
Maybe they’ll just replay it. Saves them the trouble for next time.
I am skeptical. "Care to go around again" was one of the best endings I've ever seen. If they can keep it up then I'll be glad but everything ended so beautifully last time. Even Zoodberg found love.
I don't want it to get Simpsoned.
Absolutely agree. I don't understand the excitement. The show ended perfectly. Futurama has such a great legacy there's really no need to tarnish it with more seasons a la The Simpsons.
If I die before this premieres, tell my wife "Hello"
if it comes out in 2023 it will have been 10 years since it last ended
The final season was a great sendoff. I'm stoked to cry more.
That's my thought too. It ended so well, but more Futurama? Sign me up.
Every "finale" for this show has been great. I'm sure they have another up their sleeves!
Most shows are lucky to get 1 good finale and we got like 4 lol
I’ve heard some say that part of the genius of the futurama finale is that it wrapped up all of the major characters’ arcs but still left it open enough that the show could continue in future
that was 100% my thought when it originally aired. Everything tied up, and yet with the "wanna go around again?" questioning and time jumping ability, it's just so easy to jump back in.
Time to go around again.
Finally! My prayers have been answered! Hail science!
My prayers to Great Atheismo have been answered!
Let’s pop the champaggin once DiMaggio signs on.
I'm sorry. I suffer from a very sexy learning disability.
What do I call it, Kif?
#GOOD NEWS MOTHERFUCKERS
Spleesh! It's not like we're not all thinking the same stuff and junk!
I can't way to feel ways about stuff...
The Futurama Dexter crossover we've all been waiting for.
IT JUST WON'T STAY DEAD!!
I hope they remaster all the previous Seasons to add left & right of the frame without upscaling, cropping or pan and scanning like what was done with [South Park even to say 1080p](https://www.southparkstudios.com/episodes).
I was looking at IMDB and thankfully none of the main cast have passed away so far.
South Park was able to do it because they had all the original animation files (because the my do a lot in house.) So all Matt and Trey had to do was Re-export the files in HD, and attach the original audio.
Most shows can’t do this due to changing animation studios so frequently.
Also, Futurama still used cell animation in early seasons. South Park was fully digital from the start (except the pilot). There’s probably no higher res source material for Futurama.
Cowboy Bebop did it I think, but I'm not sure how that worked out.
Would be cool though.
Only one season so far?
I can't wait to see the series finale they come up with to top the last one.
Every episode of the new season will be a finale.
"Top 10 Futurama series finales"
Should be fun to see it in action. Hope DiMaggio returns too!
There is no way he doesn't.. right?? Can't have Futurama without the lovable robot!
If he doesn't return, can't we just get the person who voices Flexo?
If not they can totally get the guy who does Jake from Adventure Time, right?... Right!?
Surely we can at least get the guy who voices King Zog from Disenchantment
Chowder has been off the air for a bit, maybe that guy who played schnitzel is free
With no DiMaggio it's no idea to return.
Sadly, this. You can't get rid of Bender and changing his voice will just feel so amazingly wrong.
He said in a panel when asked if Futurama got revived since Disney bought out all Fox that he'd be part of the project no matter the format
How is not the front-page of everything everywhere?
Dude this thread is new. Give it an hour and some dude from r/all will be saying hi lol
Edit: hi back to you all!!
Oh yes haha i know it was more of an excited Everyone needs to know! kinda thing
I have shared it 16 times since my last comment so we’re gettin there!
Hello from /r/all y'all.
Seeing this story is bittersweet because my sister won't be able to see this revival. My sister and I have been fans since day one back in 1999 when we were kids. I feel like Yancy without his younger sibling, funny enough my sister's middle name started with a J.
Woah, this came out of nowhere.
Did everything just taste purple for a second?
What smells like blue?
Which crazy thing happening are you guys screaming about?
I was in the grocery store and “Walking on Sunshine” came on and the chorus hit right as I read this
Holy crap holy crap holy crap. I gave up hope like 5 years ago.
Keep Fry and Leela married this time I beg you. Their will-they-won’t-they schtick was getting so old.
go the naruto route and talk about their child, Yancy. named after his uncle, to carry on his spirit.
Could name him Phillip Fry Jr Jr after his nephew-grandson, the astronaut.
Good news everyone!
Edit: Someone beat me to this comment already damnit 😂
I need better material
G N, E!
Oh, no, no. You're just fine.
*Loudly to everyone else* I'M LYING TO HIM TO MAKE HIM FEEL BETTER!!!
OH YOUR GOD!
Awesome.. Awesome to the **Max**.
You're a shark!
Futurama in 2013: OH NO ILL NEVER MAKE IT THIS TIME, this is the END!
Futurama in 2022: anyways,
*Futurama* isn't great just because it's *Futurama*, it was great because it had one of the most incredibly smart and educated writing teams ever, with three PhDs and seven masters degrees, many from Harvard.
Hopefully they can get some writers back, or at least people with a comparable level of education and writing experience.
This was my second thought, right after original cast lol
First they gave us the fing-longer, now they’re making the whole thing longer!
"Uh huh, uh huh. That's whatever you were talking about for you."
My sprunger is hungry for more
Hooray! I’m back baby!
Was 100% expecting to get that one quote from Helper
Edit: Helper, not Friender
This is your friend.... Bonder!
