Futurama's future has just gotten brighter. Although it's not 100% for sure, the sources are very strong. According to Billy West (voice of Fry, Profesor Franswoth, Dr. Zoidberg, and others)," There are 4 DVD movies that we'll start recording at the end of July or August. Full feature length FUTURAMA movies."
If that's not enough, Peter Liguori, who took over the position of president of the broadcasting arm at FOX (FBC) from Gail Berman in 2005 had this to say. " In terms of "Futurama" -- there's no doubt that the "Family Guy" model worked outstandingly. It's great to be a network exec and have a decision made for you by an audience. In terms of "Futurama," there haven't really been any active negotiations at this point. But I'd be an ostrich to just stick my head in the dirt and not realize what's going on with "Futurama" as well." This means a possible return to Television with new episodes for Futurama.
Also in the Futurama news, the contract to air Futurama reruns will run out in 2008 and unfortunately [Adult Swim] has been out-bid. Comedy Central is going to pick up all 72 existing Futurama episodes starting in 2008 for $400,000 an episode! That's more than double what Cartoon Network paid.
