It’s not necessarily ‘new’ news, but it is sad nonetheless. After being resurrected from the dead by Comedy Central in 2010, Futurama is once again headed to gray, static pastures. It will continue its last ordered season – the seventh – and then will cease to exist once more.
Futurama originally aired on Fox from 1999-2003, and then was revived through the awesomeness that is the Adult Swim programming block on Cartoon Network from 2004-2007. Does anyone else remember the Futurama episodes? I want to say that they appeared in the first hour timeslot on weekdays, where King of the Hill currently sits.
I am a HUGE fan of Futurama, and I like it considerably more than the 20+ year old behemoth that is The Simpsons (although I do like the show, I just don’t follow it). Maybe us fans can make enough noise to save it, or at least get another home for this truly transcendental animated series.
How do you feel about the loss of Futurama?
