More about Futurama:
Futurama is a Fox Broadcasting Company adult animated science fiction sitcom conceived by Matt Groening and developed by Groening and David X. Cohen. The series follows the exploits of Philip J. Fry, a late-twentieth-century New York City pizza delivery kid who, after being mistakenly cryogenically frozen for a thousand years, finds work at Planet Express, a retro-futuristic interplanetary delivery company in the 31st century. Groening came up with the idea for the program while working on The Simpsons in the late 1990s, and then brought Cohen on board to help build plots and characters in order to present the project to Fox.
The series ran on Fox in the United States from March 28, 1999, until August 10, 2003, before ending production. From 2003 to 2007, Futurama was aired in reruns on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim until the network’s contract ended. It was resurrected in 2008 as a series of four direct-to-video films, the most recent of which was released in early 2009. Comedy Central and 20th Century Fox Television have reached an agreement to syndicate the existing episodes and run the films as 16 new half-hour episodes, resulting in a fifth season.
20th Century Fox announced in June 2009 that Comedy Central has taken up the show for 26 additional half-hour episodes, which began airing in 2010 and 2011. The show has been renewed for a seventh season, with the first half premiering in June 2012 and the second in early 2013. Comedy Central confirmed that they would not be commissioning any more episodes after the seventh season, indicating that it would be the final season. On September 4, 2013, the series finale aired. David X. Cohen officially stated that the episode “Meanwhile” would be the final episode of season 7 and the series finale, despite Groening’s initial statement that he would try to have it picked up by another network.
