Katey SagalReady for more 'Futurama'? You should be, because Katey Sagal -- Leela herself -- is saying season 8 is a go.

According to Vulture, the recent Golden Globe winner spilled the beans at the Directors Guild of America Awards.

"'Futurama' just got ordered again for another season," Sagal said. "I don't know if I'm supposed to say that yet. But it just did."

While Comedy Central has not made an official statement, Vulture reports the show's studio, 20th Century Fox TV, has been talking to voice actors to make sure they'd be on board. However, no official negotiations have taken place.
