New Season of Futurama? Possibly Could Happen Maybe

Billy West, voice actor extraordinaire, was at a convention recently. I don't know which one, but I'm pretty sure that the video above will tell you just which con he was at. But that's not the important part. The important part, to us "Futurama" fans, is that FOX, after seeing how well the re-runs are doing on the Cartoon Network and how well the straight to DVD movies have been selling, is thinking about bringing back the show for a possible new season. Kind of like what they did with "Family Guy", but instead, this show would be good as opposed to terrible. Enjoy the video. There's some pretty good stuff in there. I might even check out Billy West in a live action, non-animated role in the movie he mentioned "Demoted". But that's contingent on "Futurama" getting back on the air.

I am a little worried though. FOX knows how to fuck up a good thing. They just might bring it back to hammer in the final nail in the coffin. But, I'd like to think of myself as an optimist. So, maybe they actually want good television programming on their network. One can only hope.

Oh crap! This is the first I've seen of this! Thanks for helping me stay up on these things. Futurama fans gotta stick together in these tough times.

To tell you the truth, I don't want it to come back to TV. If they would just keep cranking out these awesome straight-to-DVD movies, I'm be pleased as a pig in shit. Two Futurama movies a year. That's all I need.
