    New episodes of Futurama coming to Comedy Central ... for real!

    Posted Jun 22nd 2006 2:44PM by Joel Keller

    We've reported on every single little rumor that's come out about Futurama's return. We've asked Billy West, who couldn't tell us anything definitive one way or the other. But -- finally! -- we have some confirmation that Futurama is indeed coming back.

    And we can thank Craig Ferguson for it.

    When Katey Sagal visited The Late Late Show the other day, she told Craig that the show is coming back to Comedy Central in 2008 for at least 13 episodes (I was watching that appearance, too. Must have slept through that part). Don Kaplan of the New York Post confirmed this; his sources told him that all the primary voice actors signed new deals this week. Also according to the article, FOX may have the option to air the new episodes, but probably won't. The new episodes will also come out on DVD after they air.

    I'm sure that strong DVD sales played a role in this very welcome series revival. It will be a happy day when I can put the newest Futurama volume next to the others in my collection.
