According to Billy West [Voice of the main character, Phillip J. Fry] Futurama is set to return to television upon the finalization of a deal that would result in 26 new episodes of the space-comedy birthed from the warped imaginations of Matt Groening and Davis X. Cohen.
“I'm this close to selling my show ''Billy Bastard - Amateur Human Being', and the other good news is that they're doing 26 new episodes of 'Futurama'' for TV and we're hammering out the deal now. The original plan was to have the DVD's first but that's no longer the case. I'm totally jammed dude.”
The full post can be found here. I for one can't wait to see the continuing adventures of the planet express crew. Futurama was, in this geeks opinion, better than anything Fox had to offer at the time [Yeah, that includes Family Guy].
No word on whether the show will return on FOX or perhaps migrate to the Cartoon Network where it gained a loyal following of fans after it's cancellation.
