Futurama has been cancelled. Again
Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Matt Groening’s animated tv show Futurama has been cancelled. It ran from 1999 to 2003 and was cancelled by Fox, but fan interest was enough too keep it re-runs and direct to DVD movies. Comedy Central brought the show back in 2010.
The producers say that they are exploring options for a new home for the show, but there are no serious talks at this point. “We’ve been in this situation before and it’s tempting when you’re doing episodes that are as good or better than anything you’ve ever done to continue doing it,” Groening tells EW. “We’re catching our breath and seeing what the fans have to say. The experience of this show has been so much fun from the very beginning to now — everybody is so happy to work on this show — that it’d be a shame if we all went our separate ways… We would love to continue. We have many more stories to tell. But if we don’t, this is a really great way to go out… I think these episodes are the best ones we’ve ever done.”
