It's been on the cards for a while I think.

But i'm well pleased. I'm a big fan.

It's good news. I'm waiting for Fox to confirm it though; I don't trust announcements on forums (remember what happened with Half-Life 2?)

Did you follow the link, it was confirmed by Billy West on his own website, Fry's voice actor. Somehow I seriously doubt that he would mislead all the futurama fans that frequent his site. I don't think Fox will have the rights though, I recall hearing that Comedy Central had bought airing rights that should kick in in 2007. Which means no more Futurama on [adult swim], but I'm not sure if that includes first run episodes. Besides Futurama never did too well on Fox.

Yeah, that's what I meant about HL2 - Gabe Newell supposedly announced it had gone gold on a website, fans around the world went nuts, but it turned out his forum account had been hacked. I'm just saying it's not 100% confirmed yet.

Ah, ok now I see what you mean.

"Futurama could follow in the footsteps of Family Guy and re-enter production more than two years after it was axed. The animated series, brainchild of Simpsons creator Matt Groening, ended after four produced seasons amid lackluster ratings and broken scheduling on broadcast network Fox." From the Reuters article: "Reps for 20th Century Fox have declined to comment on the news, but Variety says initial negotiations have begun. If revived, it's unclear exactly which network would air the new episodes. While Fox housed the original series, the show found new life once reruns began showing on the Cartoon Network. Comedy Central subsequently snapped up the off-air rights and will exclusively air the repeats beginning in 2008. "

Great news if you ask me. By time I finally got into Futurama through Adult Swim, it was already done making episodes, and I've seen almost, if not everyone of them already. Looking forward to this.

Yes, yes, Futurama is coming back, whoopiee....but look what they did to Family Guy! They f**cked it up by bringing it back. Hopefully the same thing doesn't happen to Futurama.

I wonder why they decided on that rather than a new series/season.

oh well, it's still new futurama either way.

The new family guy episodes arenít that bad, I remember hearing about the Futurama movies a while back, when it was just a large scale rumor. Personally though, I'd rather new episodes, rather then just a few movies. On the plus side, the movies will be allot longer, I always thought the Futurama episodes were a little short, even though they are the standard half an hour.

I just remember Monkey Island 5
they even got the guy who does the voice of Guybrush to record some voice clips that were never heard before to prove they were from a new Monkey game
of course it was all a hoax

I am not saying this one IS but its also the guy who does the voice of the main character

Yes, Family Guy is going down the crapper.

I wish they would stop reusing old jokes (the Chicken Fight was funny the first time). They reuse funny side-characters (Herbert, Greased Up Deaf Guy) which makes them boring. The writers have only made a few gems this season. Other then that, the show is not creative and rarely funny.

I love old Family Guy.

Anyway, if they screw Futurama up, I'll be mad.

Family Guy is still the only thing that can make me laugh as hard as I do on sundays nights. Though I do have to hand it to Fox, their Sunday lineup (Minus freeride, with is merely meh) is pretty damned good. I love the two "Ragtime" guys whenever they show up.

I don't really mind Family Guy as long as they don't recycle jokes, and don't attempt their retarded brand of hamfisted political humour. Needless to say American Dad is a steaming heap of penguin shit.

Yeah, American Dad sucks.

Family Guy is good, but it repeats itself. And they try to be 'offensive'...Offensive isn't funny unless it has some sort of purpose. South Park gets the point across while managing to be funny. Family Guy does it because it can get away with it.

THE Simpsons arrived in Crap Land in 2001 and still didn't find their way out and eventually never will

The Simpsons got crappy around the time Futurama was being made. Interesting that the quality's gone back up slightly since they canned Futurama. Not really a surprise, though. It's more of a surprise that the original CSI is still good with all the scriptwriters spread thin in CSI Miami and NY.

Futurama still has plenty of potential, though, IMHO, as they've got a huge theme to mess with. Simpsons never really did as they were a simple typical family in a typical town and they were bound to run out of ideas sooner or later.
