Also, to our friends at PEEL, we really are starting the first dvd movie later this summer, but I know you won't believe me and debate it to death because I'm not an "official" source -- I'm just some poor schlub who actually works at the the friggin' cartoon studio where we're making the god-damned thing. That's good, you should be suspicious, because I understand how many times you've been burned in the past by promises that never came to pass and how much that must hurt. Me, I don't know what that must feel like, because nothing like that's ever happened to me -- well, I guess the closest thing would be a few years back when my mom and dad told me and my brother and sisters that we were going to take a family trip to Ireland, but we never went because my parents died within a few months of each other right after we made the reservations.

I'm sorry for doubting!   cry

rikki_rakko has always been on the ball in the past.  This makes me feel quite a bit better about the whole thing.  Still, I wonder why the "official" sources just won't make an announcement yet...

holy crap, I think my excitement level was dangerously close to the red line there.

@JBERGES: I wonder... Is it possible that all of this uncertainty that F*x is letting happen is to bolster interest in the show?  If that's the case they'll hold off until the last possible moment to tell us.

Probably someone is not signed yet or some part of production, distribution, funding, or other $ stuff hasn't been buttoned up.

That would be an excessively cheap, hype-building exercise, but I can't imagine it would be too effective getting the word out to the mainstream.  After all, Futurama nerds don't have friends who aren't Futurama nerds (or is that just me?)

FOX will be generating the buzz to their own timetable.

I would suspect that the advertizing blitz won't happen until it's close to time for the DVD's to actually be released.

You never know with any sort of movie. Sometimes, you get those "year before release short ads" that say something like "Futurama: The Movie" and "Coming to the 21st Century This December" and a short blip of Bender saying "Bender's back baby!"

Yes, I bet they'll do the huge ad campaign like they did with the Family Guy movie for the Futurama movie.

Personally, all this talk is pretty much confirming that something is happening, but nobody's sure what. I hope that they don't do what they did with the Family Guy movie and split the movie into later episodes, if Futurama got back the television.

    * June 21, 2006, Katey Sagal, as a guest on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, stated that Futurama is very likely to return for either 13 or 16 new episodes on Comedy Central, in addition to the DVD movies. She also stated that she had already signed the contract to do voice work in Futurama.

    Also, on Adult Swim, it was announced that Billy West spoke of 3 straight-to-DVD episodes of Futurama which would begin production during the Summer of 2006, hopefully arriving Fall of 2006.

Perhaps these episodes will be bonus features on the DVD's.

Katey Sagal (Futurama)
David Milch (Deadwood)
Arturo Gatti

See the way Katey's name is listed?  Futurama!

Not 'Married With Children', not 'Eight Simple Steps', 'not Lost'.

The media buzz is starting - little hints dropped here and there to keep the buzz going.

This message board will go up in a flash of spontaneous combustion when the 'official' word is released.

Back a few months ago, I stated that Billy West's rebuttal of the new eps was a little too quick - almost like damage control.  He probably got a bit of a tongue-lashing from DXC for spilling the beans too soon.  Notice that Billy has been strangely silent since then about Futurama?

Anyway - I'm a greedy bastard.  I want the DVD's to be unrated so that the plots can be a little more adult oriented and the eps to be more PG for TV.

If Katey is correct about the new eps being on Comedy Central - the show will be given the respect that it deserves.

Billy West has basically confirmed what Ms. Sagal said last night/this morning:

 
Quote
I was waiting for someone else to announce the show's return to television
so I wouldn't get clobbered if I had any information that was inaccurate!

Yes-- what Katey said is true so there is every reason now (with no
reservations) to go nuts.I'm glad to go back to work on my favorite show!
I'm sure I'll be on a bunch of shows to promote this.I've never seen Craig
Ferguson--what's his story?
Futurama lives!

Alright, I'm done.  You all know how I feel, and I'm not going to go to great lengths to articulate it.  Just one question: Ms. Sagal's on Lost?  I should watch that show sometime.

From BillyWest.com.

From the fingers of Billy himself...

Yes! A full season of new Futurama episodes is on the way on Comedy Central! I already knew but every time I said anything,I got my ass spanked for ''jumping the gun.'' Everyone is coming back and we start recording in July.  So,ahh.....Death to my enemies!

This'll be so much fun.

Hehheh, funnyly enough. That was my reaction. I made an audible EEEEEEEEEEE that frightened Diego who was sitting in my lap. His ears went way back and he gave me this look like i'd lost my mind.

Is that a real word, or like Fry asking Leela if Bender was 'catastrophizing' another planet?

Anyway, we know what you meant.

This is a happy day for all of us.

There's a televised season 5 of Futurama, thanks to Fox.  Production season 4 was split into two televised seasons.

Well, 'funnily' is a word, at least.  (Not to be confused with funnely, which I assume would mean to do something in the same manner a funnel would...)

Right then... extreme excitement... tears of joy... loss of bladder control... the usual pseudo-optimism.  Katey's input makes this one more legit at least; I have a better feeling about it than the other announcements. Once again, here's hoping for more official word soon.

EDIT:  This Venictionary is boulderdash!  It has different definitions for 'EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!' and 'EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!' I'll never be fluent...

So far Xanfor and Venus haven't dropped dead from rapturous excitement - we now only have to worry about Shiny.

Hopefully, at the end we'll get closure to the Leela/Fry relationship.

My main concern is whether or not they can get the same writer's back. If they have to come in with a whole new team of writer's i'm nervous as to how it will all turn out. So i'll have to wait till after the first few episodes before i decide whether i want to drop dead from rapturous excitement.

At least it will be on Comedy Central, where it stands a chance, as they do a good job with South Park.

Well, if this is all correct I'm going to pretend the table top is a pair of bongos (as in drums =P), and make the cat dance a 'Glee-shuffle' of sorts.

One concern is whether England will have to wait longer than the States for all of it. It's only a concern because I can be impatient.   wink
The other depressing and shameful concerns like "Is this all a misunderstanding?" are being smothered by euphoric optimism.

This is outstanding news and I echo Venus' "EEEEEEEeeee"s.  I'm wondering.  Did Comedy Central buy Futurama outright from Fox?  It sounds like the new eps are going to be produced by CC.
