futurama.jpgOn Billy West’s forums (the voice of Fry) Billy added this to a posting of his:

I’m thisclose to selling my show–”Billy Bastard–Amateur Human Being,”
And the other good news is that they’re doing 26 new episodes of
”Futurama” for TV and we’re hammering out the deal now.The original
plan was to have the DVD’s first but that’s no longer the case.I’m totaly
jammed dude.

Greetings from the year 3000! It still sucks!

Although I couldn’t (quickly) verify this on Billy’s site this is a comment from a Newsvine seed:

Billywest.com – “HERE’S GREAT NEWS!
Here’s the official word on Futurama!!
David X. phoned me about an hour ago and said that this Futurama project
is a done deal! Here’s the word from DX—
There are 4 DVD movies that we’ll start recording at the end of July or
August.Full feature length FUTURAMA movies.
Everybody is excited to get back together–as I am!

Into the Future,
Billy”

Not a series, 4 DVD movies but that’s still cool.

I’m stoked. There’s a lot of buzz out there about how horrible it is to bring something back to life after such a long time. That new episodes won’t \ can’t be as good as the originals but I have high hopes. The same directors are coming back, along with (I presume) most or all of the original voices. I say they should start selling Slurm as a promotion – I’d buy 10 cases.
