Its the end of April, and thanks to April break, I was just able to spend a week in Canada with some relatives, as well as see a ball-game. I was flipping through one of my grandmother's magazines, "Bell TV", when I came across this article:

Here's the text of the article:
Bell TV, April 2006:
First it happened to Family Guy, and now it looks like this underrated animated series from Simpsons creator Matt Groening is getting a second chance at life. Fans have been pleading to see more adventures of Fry and his futuristic delivery crew since the sci-fi comedy was cancelled in 2003, and someone has finally listened to their collective voice (or, more likely, their DVD dollars). Though fox has yet to confirm the project, actor Billy West (who voices Fry, Professor Farnsworth, and Dr. Zoidberg) announced on his personal website that four Futurama features were in the works, though they'll most likely go straight to DVD.
Although the article reveals no information about new Futurama that most PEEL posters don't already know, I was really happy to see the article. It was the first time I'd seen something about Futurama in public for a while--and I was excited to see the Futurama crew pictured in a public magazine (albeit a somewhat obscure Canadian TV Guide).
I don't know if someone else has already posted this, and a lot of these short articles announcing Futurama's return are sure to come, but let us rejoice at the start of the great comeback of our favorite cartoons.
