It's been officially announced, stubborn doubters. Reuters, the AP, Entertainment Weekly and all the trades are reporting it with quotes from the "supposed" press release I posted. I can understand being skeptical of single-sourced hearsay, but this is more than solid.

If you need any more confirmation than that, I suggest you join the Flat Earth Society.

Wikinews article.

Welcome to PEEL inturnaround. Bucks County, eh? I think that's where CrapBag's from. Seems that the news about the return have gotten at least one new member already. Read the PEELer's FAQ if you already haven't. Read it. Learn it. Live it. Make it into a hat rack.

Danke, i_c. Yeah, I'm new and I'm glad I had something good to actually contribute as my first post.

I'm proud to be from the same place that anyone named "crapbag" hails from. Fiercely proud.

The hat rack has been made, good sir.

Yeah, this is all official-enough sounding news for me. Didn't one of the press releases have a quote from some Comedy Central exec? I seriously doubt Comedy Central would be saying anything if it weren't a done deal.

.....freaking amazing. I hope the new episodes are good! And also are IN ADDITION TO the DVD movies. I'll be severely disappointed if the "movies" just repackage three episodes from the Comedy Central era.

...Damn it, FishyJoe, you're right!

Update from mArc on CGEF:

   
Quote
Update: It seems that some of these articles got some things confused. The 4 DVD movies which we reported about a few days ago will eventually be shown as 4 episodes each on Comedy Central. This makes the number of episodes 16, not 13. But as I understand it, there is no other new content other than those movies.

*glowers irritatedly at random people*

I don't understand.  Didn't Katey and Billy both say "new episodes?"   confused

On the upside, this means each movie has 4 episodes worth of content, so they should be longer than 90 mintues apiece.  Right?

One episode is about 22.5 minutes long so four together make a 90 minute movie.

Fuck yeah, can't wait to see futurama and south park on the same channel, maybe they should do a crossover episode where kyle, stan, and kenny gets so pissed off at lardass that they have him cryogenically frozen and he wakes up in new new york, but I doubt that'l happen

I don't see where the idea comes from that's the source of the update on the front page that this is pretty much movies in episodic format and that's it.

I suspect it's more a trial balloon before CC orders more episodes, but I don't see any source for the cut up movies idea.

mArc doesn't need sources. He's an efficient german genius. Plus he has sources. I trust what he says.

...although, even with my "severely disappointed" line above, I'm not too upset about it. It's still 16 episodes, which is almost as long as production season 4.

Yeah, I understand what you mean. There's never a plan for a season two when you just picked up a season one, just a hope for more. I'm sure if it makes sense for Fox and CC to do business for more episodes past the initial run, it will happen.

I'm actually dissapointed now. Having to structure the new movies to fit into nice 22 minute segments is gonna hurt it.

As angry as I am about the whole cable debacle, I proudly yet angrily raise the Excitement Threat Level to "red."


It would behoove us to not look this gift horse in the mouth.  Whether it's four new movies, four new episodes, or four new seasons, it's new and it's Futurama.

Now to convince my folks to get cable by 2008.  Actually, I should have my own place by then...

I'll buy it on dvd... but chances are, I'll have it on computer rather than watching it when it comes out at it's exact date(s).

Although hopefully The Neutral Planet will have the episode transcripts like they do now. All power to the neutrals!


now i whish i had cable... im not only going to have to wait for the dvds to come out but for them to come to aussie dvd stores as well.... i think i need a tissue

PS: i probablly will try to resist reading the transcripts because it will ruin it before i get the movies..

PPS:
I though the transcripts were based off the dvd subtitles i guess im wrong.

Hopefully the sudden influx of screaming n00bs isn't going to be the death of PEEL between now and 2008.

I'm not sure if Futurama's the best fit with South Park or Drawn Together (because the very mature themes)  that and I don't like those shows much.

But I do think it fits nicely with the Daily Show, Showbiz show etc.  Maybe CC will also bring back the Critic and Dilbert reruns (not at 2am!?) that would be glorious.

For those young 'uns, relive those glory years again!. Looking back, I kind of feel guilty...he was only 10 :P

Edit: I notice the new trailer for Al Gore's movie is animated by the usual suspects, so looks like my previous question on whether they'd stick with the same studio is kind of answered...

Comedy Central airing the movies as the "new episodes" does make more sense now. I was wondering how they could afford new episodes, or why Fox would pay for more with no intent on airing them.

Yeah, but George Bush isn't going to be the one responsible for ruining PEEL.
But I am sure that someone will find a way to blame it on him   tongue
