Sellman is also writing the upcoming videogame, which he said will poke fun at other popular titles. There are parodies of game genres like Metal of Honor and Grand Theft Auto (specifically through a game called Grand Theft Scratchy), and Bartman will feature heavily in the game.

Other tidbits revealed in the panel include:

? The crew is working on 60 new episodes of Futurama, which will be done in widescreen.*
? "Spider Pig" from The Simpsons Movie will make an appearance in the first episode of the new season. There was a scene with the loveable pig at the end of the movie that got cut, but it will most likely make it onto the DVD.
? Lurlene Lumpkin is coming back next season.
? For Valentine's Day there will be a Sid and Nancy episode, with Nelson as Sid Vicious and Lisa as Nancy Spungen.

60 new episodes would be nice.  Sorry if this was posted somewhere else.

It's four movies, not sixty episodes, hence the WS format.

Link.

We've known about this for some time.

Perhaps it's a misprint and supposed to be 16 instead of 60, but this was posted today from the Simpsons panel at comic con. 

I've been aware of the movies for some time as well.

Well if it's 60 brand-new episodes in additon to the movies, that would be three seasons worth at once, hence I am slightly skeptical.

 That's got to be wrong. I'm sure Comedy Central wouldn't buy 3 season worth of the show with out at least airing a sixth season. Doing that could be a fast ticket to loosing lots of money.

I'm pretty sure it was either a slip of the tongue or a typo.  The crew at the Futuama panel told us specifically they were doing 16 episodes (DXC or Keeler, I'm not sure who, even discussed how the each movie will have to have 12 "acts," three for each episode, forced into them for commercial purposes once they air on Comedy Central.)

60 New episodes?  eek
Okay, that's not actually impossible.
It is, however, about as likely as the Israelis and Palestinians (sp?) kissing and making nice.
Y'know, on the order of 1 in 10E85.
Nobody is going to make a commitment like that without at least seeing the DVD sales and cable ratings numbers.
I'll shut up now...

Think about this:
Sixty.
Sixteen.
It's easy to hear "sixteen" and think "sixty".

Oh, and SpaceCase, Israel and Palestine aren't as bad as usual right now, because Israel's more mad at Hamas than the classic Palestinians, but this'll probably change before the end of the year, like usual.

Yep, that's GOT to be it.    big grin  Sorry, but there's just no way that anybody ordered 60 episodes of futurama at once.
