Comedy Central is going back to the Futurama. Three years after the show last aired on prime time, the cable net has signed a deal to resurrect the former Fox animated series for a minimum 13-episode run. Comedy Central will start airing the new shows in 2008.
HURRAH! This is one of my favorite shows. Although I was lukewarm when it was first aired, I've grown to love it as much, or more than, The Simpsons. Yes, Family Guy is also good and very funny and I also love King of the Hill, but Futurama is special to me. The writing was always tight, like the early years of The Simpsons, and the animation, a combination of traditional and computer-generated, was always first-rate. I've been glued to Adult Swim since it's inception, not for the new material, but for the Futurama and Family Guy reruns. I am so happy that I'll get to see some first-run episodes, again.
