Fururama is going back into production for 26 new episodes! From Billy West himself (the guy who does the voice of Phillip J. Fry) on his website’s message board:
And the other good news is that they’re doing 26 new episodes of ‘Futurama’ for TV and we’re hammering out the deal now.The original plan was to have the DVD’s first but that’s no longer the case.I’m totaly jammed dude.
Greetings from the year 3000! It still sucks!
EDIT: It turns out that the news was not so good from this post on Billy’s website later in the day:
I’m sorry I gave inaccurate info on the cartoon.I was told on one end that the TV show was a go but DXC enlightened me (with a hammer) that this was not the case.I think there is a Futurama project as in DVD’s but I appearently had bad info.But I do live to give good Futurama news to people.So I must’ve died or something.
All eyes on the skies,
Oh well…maybe eventually Fox will “get it”.
