David X. Cohen talks about the new Futurama

by Kevin Kelly, posted Dec 13th 2006 3:44PM
David X. Cohen spilled a few beans recently to Toyfare Magazine about the upcoming new Futurama season that'll be both direct to DVD, and appearing on Comedy Central. Right now it's like the chicken and egg, and nobody knows which will come first, but I know that one way or another, I'll be watching. Here's a couple of tidbits:
  • The entire original cast is returning
  • You'll find out some of Nibbler's secrets
  • Al Gore is back
What more can you ask for? Except of course, for them to hurry up and finish it. How long does someone have to wait for some new Futurama goodness? Apparently at least a year longer. The new Futurama won't be ready until 2008, meaning that five years will have passed since a new episode has been seen. Five years! Still, I suppose it's a small price to pay. How many shows come back from the dead after that long? Does this mean I shouldn't give up hope on Gilligan's Island?

[Thanks, Justin and Jeff]

Now if only they would actually cut off Al Gore's head and put it in a jar so it couldn't TALK anymore...

Better late than never.

But I'm pissed off that we won't get any Futurama movies. I was hoping for 2 hour movies not 4 episodes made into a movie that will just be shown as a season.
