I was browsing through the message boards of Futurama on that website, "tv.com".  It said that the makers of Family Guy and The OC are going to be the new writers of Futurama if it comes back.  My guess is, this is just a rumor. 

What's your take on this?

It's proboably just a rumor.But if it isn't,Futurama wouldn't be the same.

I really doubt that Matt Groening and David X Cohen - two nerds by heart with a crew of other nerds by heart - will give away a show that was filled with what Groening ever wanted to do, to some comedians like Seth McFarlane, Seth Green and so on are.

As much as Fox owns the rights to produce it, I believe it is still Matt Groening's and DXC's property.

mm hm, why would fox try to fix something that's no broke? Matt Groening and David x Cohen r doing a great job! They would never change writers... i hope.

Like germanfryfan says, FOX may own the rights to produce it, but Groening and Cohen have the rights to write, etc...

Groening would never mix his shows with Family Guy. Never. Also, The OC is a totally different genre from Futurama, so the switch from The OC to Futurama would be a big leap. Like GFF and the rest said, it's likely a rumor.
