Futurama Returns (to TV too!)

Some month ago, we were given the wonderful news of the return of Futurama in DVD form. While that’ll still happen, it seems Futurama will also return to the TV in 26 new episodes:

[…] 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 totaly jammed dude.

This is great news. Futurama is the best thing to happen to animated television ever.

  1. Good news everyone! I was going to have a show too, animation with hookers and blackjack.

    Actually, leave out the animation. And the blackjack.

  2. Bad news everyone:

    Guys,

    I’m sorry I gave inaccurate info on the cartoon.I was told on one end that the TV show was a go but DXC enlightened me (with a hammer) that this was not the case.I think there is a Futurama project as in DVD’s but I appearently had bad info.But I do live to give good Futurama news to people.So I must’ve died or something.

    All eyes on the skies,

    Billy

    Sounds to me like it’s just not official yet.

    Aw dangit, I gone and got myself all excited there.

    I’m still hoping they’ll pull a Family Guy once the DVDs come out. I have the season boxes and I’ll probably be buying those as well. With strong DVD sales I don’t think even Fox could say no to a money tree.

    Looking at their current line-up (which I try to limit as much as possible), it seems that Fox has rarely ignored a money tree, be it good or bad.

    Joen, please tell me, is Danish television as bad as American television? Somehow I suspect that in this country’s attempts to be the best at everything, we’ve inadvertently succeeded at polluting our air moreso with transimissions of rank TV shows than with carbon dioxide emissions.

  5. Having seen British, German, Dutch, American & French television, I can safely say that American TV is by far the crappiest.

    However there are two things to note here. There is more American tv, thus it has more crap too. Good shows are in good supply too, but mainly on the entertainment level.

    It funny to note that having seen “Who wants to be a millionaire” in several of those countries, the American version was – BY FAR – the easiest. At least, I thought so, the Americans around me still found it hard though…

    ..make of that what you will, but as the general (Endemol, who brought us Big Brother) concept of the show was the same, it made it pretty clear to me that American TV is generally dumbed down. And I fail to see how that can be anything but a bad thing for American society (and by implication, the world).

    • Not saying there aren’t smart cultured americans too – just saying the TV doesn’t help.
