Yes, it’s true! Comedy Central has picked up more brand effing new episodes of Futurama. Quoth a CC press release:
Futurama will return to production on 26 new half-hour episodes more than six years after the series aired its last original episode…The new episodes will be available in mid 2010 to be shown on COMEDY CENTRAL.
Okay, that sounds a little dry, but at least the creator David X. Cohen had a little bit more fun with his quote:
“We’re excited and amazed that the show is coming back, perhaps due to some sort of mysterious time loop. We look forward to working with COMEDY CENTRAL and 20th Television to make this the best iteration of the loop yet!”
See, that’s the kind of nerdy fun I can get behind.
In honor of this momentous occasion, enjoy this clip from Futurama Classic, featuring Beck.
