Futurama is rebooting on HULU!


For a lot of people, once the Simpsons started getting dumbed down for the masses, the logical move was to check out creator Matt Groening’s other animated masterpiece, Futurama.

Fry, Leela and Bender are a motley crew of friends all working for a delivery service in the 31st century and, naturally, dealing with one chaos or another on a daily basis.

First airing on Fox from 1999-2003 before the network famously pulled the plug midway through production on Season 4, Futurama was brought back in 2007 with four direct-to-DVD movies that subsequently aired as 30-minute episodes on Comedy Central.

Now it’s getting another boost from Hulu!

The cult animated sci-fi comedy is set to premiere in 2023 the majority of the series’ voice cast is set to return, including Billy West, Katey Sagal, Tress MacNeille, Maurice LaMarche, Lauren Tom, Phil LaMarr and David Herman.

The only person NOT returning is John DiMaggio who voices Bender. Which would really suck to have him played by someone else.  But I do hear they are still trying to get him on board while they look for new voice actors to play the role.

DiMaggio was not happy with the offer made to him to return and negotiating fell through when production started getting held up.
