After three years in the graveyard, the wonderful Futurama is to be redeemed by Comedy Central. Although Futurama was always seen as the poor sister to Matt Groening’s other well-known output, for me it was even funnier than The Simpsons and the decision by Fox to pull it was another one of those inexplicable American corporate TV decisions.
But now it’s back! Or, at least, it will be – in 2008 with thirteen brand spanking new episodes AND the original cast voicing the new programmes. We have to assume Sky will once again pick up the option…don’t we?
