Futurama returns as Comedy Central revives the Fox classic

Matt Groening is the well-known creator of the weller-known mega series, The Simpsons. For decades, Homer, Bart, Marge, Lisa, and Maggie have ruled Fox television, but for a brief period, they shared the spotlight with “sister series” Futurama, which followed the adventures of a 20th-century New York City pizza delivery boy, Philip J. Fry (Billy West), who was cryogenically frozen for a thousand years, then awakened in the 31st-century to a world of robots and aliens. Futurama ran from 1999 to 2003, later finding a popular home on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim. After which, four straight-to-DVD films were created that performed so well, Comedy Central purchased the rights to air them on TV. After receiving rave reviews, Comedy Central decided to sign up for an entirely new season, reviving the Futurama series. Now, fans old and new, and all over the cosmos, can tune in regularly to check out 26 new episodes of Futurama every Thursday evening. You an old fan or new?
