Were you still wondering whether or not this show would survive on its new network and time? Let those wonders rest as 26 more glorious episodes will grace my face as they have just announced that Futurama Lives! Kinda! We just don’t know when because the information they gave doesn’t provide a date!! But we now know it’s coming and will continue to air on Comedy Central.
Comedy Central is finalizing a deal for a 26-episode seventh season pickup of Futurama. Comedy Central resurrected Matt Groening and David X. Cohen’s animated sci-fi comedy in 2009, six years after it was cancelled by Fox, with a 26-episode sixth season order. The first batch of 13 episodes from Season 6 averaged 2.5 million viewers, with the remaining 13 airing this summer.
This is huge news for fans of the franchise as we’ve already suffered one cancellation for this series and some of us have been chomping at the bits for more information as to whether the latest resucitation had any long term effects.
