See Brand New ‘Futurama’ Footage In ‘Worlds Of Tomorrow’ Trailer
The Movie God   |  

Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow

If you’ve been twitching and itching at the extreme lack of new Futurama in your life these days, I have just the thing for you. Booze. Lots of booze. It helps you forget all the evil people who have repeatedly taken the show away from you while other animated series go on and on. Hell, some of those shows are old enough to drink with you.

But that’s not all (Call now and you’ll receive…). Earlier this year we found out about Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow, an upcoming mobile game. Not just any mobile game, though. The original Futurama crew helped with the game, including the voice cast. That means it’s the closest thing to new episodes we currently have to look forward to.

A teaser trailer for Worlds of Tomorrow has been released online. And yes, it features brand new animated footage and voice acting to enjoy, just like we got on the show. Check it out below!

‘Futurama’ To Live One More Day…On ‘The Simpsons’
The Movie God   |  

Futurama

While it’s not the full resurrection fans are hoping will one day happen again, and it’s not that 3D remake we saw recently, it has been announced that Futurama will indeed live again…for at least one day.

In something you’d think would have happened a long, long time ago, the characters of Futurama will appear in a crossover episode of The Simpsons this November 9th. Both series were created by Matt Groening, so it makes all the sense in the world to have the two animated worlds meet up; it just took a while.

‘Futurama’ Gets Cancelled … Again … But Is It Really The End?
The Movie God   |  

Futurama Image

There’s a few dead TV shows we here at Geeks of Doom have helped the masses fight particularly hard to see resurrected. Of these shows, the two fought hardest for have been Firefly, of course, and the animated favorite Futurama.

The show set a thousand years in the future initially ran from 1999 to 2003 on Fox before it was ultimately canceled. But the eventual release of four direct-to-DVD movies and the relentless passion of the show’s fans paid off, and, to ours and many others’ surprise and delight, it was eventually decided to bring Futurama back to life. The show’s return scored big numbers—numbers that were praised at the time—and the show’s Facebook page passed 10 million likes, proving the lasting and ever-growing fanbase. Only two years later, the page now sits at 26 million likes. How’s that for growth?

But alas, it wasn’t enough. It’s been reported that Comedy Central has decided to cancel the show for its second time, and that the final 13 episodes of season seven, which are set to begin airing this June, will be the last.

‘Futurama’ Passes 10 Million On Facebook; New Images From Upcoming Season Released!
The Movie God   |  

Some exciting times are upon we the fans of Futurama. Since the show’s glorious return, it has put up some pretty strong numbers for Comedy Central and the new season (originally the second half of last season) is set to premiere this upcoming June!

But it’s the social network itself, Facebook, where Futurama is really dominating in popularity. The animated series from Matt Groening and David X. Cohen‘s official Facebook page just recently got its 10 millionth “Like” — more than Angry Birds, Pearl Jam, and NPR…COMBINED.

In celebration of this momentous occasion, two new images from one of the upcoming episodes titled “Neutopia!” have been released by Comedy Central, and you can see them by clicking on over to the other side now!

Geek Peek: First Image From New ‘Futurama’ Released!
The Movie God   |  

Futurama

Back in the beginning of March, it was announced that the desperately-wanted return of Futurama would finally make its second series debut on June 24, 2010 at 10pm EST. Now the very first image from the show’s big comeback has been released, and it’s a bit strange.

The Matt Groening and David X. Cohen series, which ran for four seasons from 1999 to 2003, was canceled by Fox after they severely-mishandled the show and moved it all over the TV schedule thanks to sporting events and not-so-bright executives. This didn’t sit well with fans, and as you know they’ve been fighting to get it back ever since. A fifth season in the form of four direct-to-DVD movies proved the fan-base was stronger than ever, and the sixth season was finally greenlighted almost one year before it’s scheduled return to your TV.

Click on over to check out the gruesome (yet still hilarious) first image from Futurama‘s return!

New ‘Futurama’ Set To Officially Debut On Comedy Central In June!
The Movie God   |  

Futurama

Comedy Central has confirmed what we’ve all been waiting to hear: Futurama will officially be back on your TV sets on June 24 of this year!

To catch everyone lost in the dark up: back in 2003, 20th Century Fox was silly and canceled a little show called Futurama way before it should have been canceled…as they have been known to do on occasion. Since the show was killed off, its fans have continued to scrape and claw any way that they could in order to try and convince someone to bring the show back. At first these efforts seemed futile, but after another Fox show, Family Guy, proved that it can be done, these pleas have consistently grown stronger and stronger.

Fans of Futurama were convincing enough to persuade the studio into giving the animated sci-fi series one more shot in the form of four straight-to-DVD movies. Bender’s Big Score, The Beast with a Billion Backs, Bender’s Game, and Into the Wild Green Yonder eventually were born and released into the world; and to our pure elation, they did just well enough to force those Suits into a few meetings that lead to the decision to give the show one 26-episode season.

SDCC 09: ‘Futurama’ Panel
Henchman21   |  

UPDATE: Since the SDCC panel, there’s been an update on the Futurama casting dispute, with reports that so far three cast members have signed on for next season.

***

None of the voice actors for Fox’s animated comedy Futurama were present for the show’s panel on Saturday at the San Diego Comic-Con, as the actors were still in contract disputes and its still unclear as to whether they will return for the upcoming season. Series creators Matt Groening and David X. Cohen (as well as some of the other show runners) were on hand at the panel, which turned out to be was a pretty laid back panel, with the writers discussing some of the ideas they have for the new episodes (which will be going forward, with or without the original cast).

Episodes will include the secret origin of Scruffy the Janitor; a storyline involving Bender and Amy getting married, which will lead to a debate on Robosexual marriage and will be voted on (in the show) Proposition Infinity.

UPDATED! Good News…Sorta: ‘Futurama’ Gets Some Of Its Cast Back
The Movie God   |  

Futurama

UPDATE #2: I was able to hear back from Fox again, and was told that Billy West and John DiMaggio did indeed sign on along with everyone else. Futurama is back, folks!

UPDATE: The trades are reporting that all of the cast members, including West and DiMaggio, have signed new deals. As I said earlier, someone from Fox told me directly that only the three actors were confirmed so far, and I haven’t heard anything since then, but the big boys seem to have heard differently, so it all seems legit. Rejoice!

Earlier today, the news that we had all been waiting for was announced: the original voice cast had been signed for the upcoming new 26-episode run of Futurama. The news was initially reported by The Star, but has since changed up a bit: I contacted someone at Fox who confirms that Katey Sagal (Leela Turanga), Maurice LaMarche (Kif Kroker/Hedonismbot/Morbo/Donbot/Clamps), and Tress MacNeille (Mom) had all officially signed on. This of course means that the biggest name of them all, Billy West (Philip J. Fry/Dr. John Zoidberg/Prof. Hubert Farnsworth/Zapp Brannigan), and John DiMaggio (Bender Bending Rodriguez) — who admitted that he was confident all cast would return at Comic Con — had not yet signed on, but it is hoped that an agreement will be reached with the rest of the cast soon.

The news comes after the shocking report recently that the original voice actors with stuck in a financial dispute, and that a casting call had gone out to find new voice actors to take on all of the show’s roles.

‘Futurama’ Star John DiMaggio Is Confident All Cast Will Return
The Movie God   |  

Futurama

Word making its way out of San Diego Comic Con ’09 is that the Futurama panel was a major downer and that none of the cast members who were expected to appear were present. Naturally, this all stems from the current salary dispute between the majorly-talented voice actors and 20th Century Fox, who recently put out a casting call for new voice actors in case no agreement is reached (Read: FOX Hates Your Guts With Every Single Inch Of Their Being; Possibly Looking To Re-Cast ‘Futurama’). It’s being reported by Topless Robot that the only thing that came out of the Comic Con panel, was that show creators Matt Groening and David X. Cohen basically just asked that we all cross our fingers and hope for the best, which we’ve all been doing for years now anyway.

Surprisingly, this isn’t all that came out of the Con, though. IGN actually found Bender Bending Rodriguez himself, John DiMaggio, at Comic Con and was able to ask him where things stood. DiMaggio, in his typical outgoing and happy style offered his own personal view of what was going on and what he thought would happen. He even opened with a little song by a man named Elvis.
