Planet Express rides again. . .or maybe not

Phillip J. Fry billy west futuramaGood news everyone!  NOT!

Earlier today, Billy West, voice of Phillip J. Fry and so many others on the dearly departed Futurama, posted a message on his own web site that they were hammering out a deal for 26 new episodes of the series that would air on TV. For just a moment the world was a joyous place again: men hugged puppies, warring factions put down their arms, and Brad and Angelina said they were going into seclusion so we would never hear about them. Ever. Ever. Again.

Then, only a few short hours later, Billy posted again and said that there was no such project except for the DVD releases that Jonathan Toomey wrote about earlier this year. After the news was heard, men ran away from puppies, wars began, and Brad and Angelina decided to start a 24-hour cable channel devoted just to them.

Oh, we were so happy there for just one minute!

maddr I too hope that Fiturama returns, I just hope that it doesn't come back like Family Guy did, not half as good as it was originally.

somethimg tells me thats there 's more to this rumor.
1.) Billy West just does not announce that there working on a deal and then say's oops! 2.) look at the interesting word he use to decribe how he was informed that there was no deal..."hammered by the exec's) 3.) it makes no sense for him to make up this info. I beleive that a deal is being worked out, but billy is under contract not to let the cat out of the bag, with penalty of a fine looming he takes back the announcement. This is not false hope, there is too much smoke not to be any fire....these are big deals and these companies know how to start the hype machine. Information is power....Futurama will be back on..it's just a matter of time..

That's too bad. Futurama has all the wit of the Simpsons except more creativity and imagination due to its time and setting.

Here's hoping that it's just FOX telling him to keep quiet, rather than it being untrue.
