I think it depends on many things like the sales on the movies gio619.

No sadly no. But we all need to let the studio know that we still love Futurama.

But in addition to buying the DVDs, if fans would also be willing to send letters and emails, I think that would work very nicely.  Hypothetically speaking, if 20th Century Fox were to receive many emails and hand-written letters from Futurama fans, that could REALLY help!

I mean, when you think about it, a very effective fan-campaign would definitely cause the producers to consider making another season of Futurama episodes.  Because when you get right down to it, fan-campaigns are all about getting the fans' voice heard by the company who produces the show.  All you have to do is get your message out there, that we want a new season of Futurama.  But, if for some reason, the DVD sales don't scream that message loud enough, then I see no reason why fans couldn't try and start a campaign to get a brand new season of Futurama.

Afterall, it doesn't hurt to try.  wink

And I should know, considering the fact that I help run a fan-campaign for Pokemon (but that's a different story).  XD

Does Pokemon need a campaign? Nearly every other forum I've been on has had heaps of threads about Pokemon.

But the writing of he letters is a good idea.

I heard somewhere there might a live-action Futurama movie in the new future.   If Into The Wild Green Yonder sells good, maybe there will be more Futurama movies.

LOL, Bear.  XD

Though, Cartoon Network aren't really the ones who are in charge of the production of the show (that would be Pokemon USA and DuArt).  CN is simply the network that airs Pokemon, so they get to choose which seasons of the show to air.

Does Pokemon need a campaign? Nearly every other forum I've been on has had heaps of threads about Pokemon.
Well, yes and no.  xD

No, the Pokemon games don't need a fan-campaign. Neither does the TCG.  In fact, both the games and the TCG are being handled very well by Pokemon USA.

However, yes, the anime does need a fan-campaign.  I mean, the show has basically suffered a huge decrease in its overall quality, which has caused many fans to stop watching.  And this is all because Pokemon USA decided it'd be a good idea to replace the original voice cast.  Must...resist...the urge...to rant....

 *begin explanation* 
*end explanation*

But of course, that's a completely different subject.  And I would be making this thread go way off-topic if I were to continue talking about the Pokemon campaign, lol.  So, if anyone wants to continue discussing Pokemon, just create a new thread in the TV/Off-topic section of the forums.  XD

oh in satans glorious name. i hope not. it just wouldt be the same. i cant imagine how a live action movie would be any improvement to futurama, or do it any good. if there would be really a futurama live action movie, you could expect something like this:

im already cursing the guy who came up with the idea of an avatar live action movie. i hope he was fired out of a cannon... into the sun.

i loved dragonball and it just makes me sad. not in a good way frown
srry, but i would rather see it canceled than doing such a horrible thing to futurama.


but a 6th season? yes please.

Futurama is a CARTOON, why make it live action?
That's like making a Saving Private Ryan cartoon.

I don't know if I want another season or not. I didn't like green yonder that much. But at the same time I don't want the show to be on the air so long that they get stale (like the Simpsons and Family Guy right now).

I really like the mass letter idea. There's almost 575,000 people on Futurama Facebook fans, probably something similar for myspace, and thousands on the numerous fan-sites. If we could get those people to just click on a link, write their name in, and click send, it wouldn't be as effective as personalized letters, but that many e-mails should have some effect, right?

If each letter is accompanied by a $100 bill, then yes.

I'd say we chill on that idea for a little while. Remember there was three years between The Devil's Hands and the announcement of the movies, and we got there through buying the DVDs and merchandise and watching it at 11pm weeknights following children's cartoons and leading into Family Guy. Personally, I think the second Lazarusation of Futurama will be much easier, considering there are more DVDs and merchandise on a larger scale and the show's now at the easier-to-see 9pm following The Colbert Report and leading into South Park (which, I think, is a bigger deal than being paired with children's cartoons and Family Guy). Notice how soon we've heard the "news" from Billy West compared to how long it took to hear anything on the movies. Fox is considering it hard and I wouldn't be surprised if it happens. It would be simple enough to put Futurama in as a mid-season replacement of one of Seth MacFarlane's three series on Sunday night come this fall. Also, the delay of producing Futurama (two years between announcement and release of the first movie) means that Fox has a "now or never" option on the show; if they want to take advantage of the situation, these next few months are the best time to or it'll not happen at all.

dvd sales trump petitions. FOX and Comedy Central executives don't really care if you like the show, only if you're willing to spend money on it.

Greedy FOX. But I'd spend all my money on Futurama rather than alcohol, and I like to drink. I just hope it's a new season. I would prefer that more than a DVD film or theatrical release, but as a fan, I don't mind.

This.  Instead of writing emails and letters, buy several copies of the movies/original series and give them to your friends/family/neighbors/pets/etc.

I'm gonna be buying the four movies in region 1 format even though I live in Australia and have already bought them in region 4 format (well not ITWGY, but preordering is almost the same as having bought it anyway) because: 1) I want new Futurama and am willing to have three copies of the one movie and 2) Because the packaging for them here sucks so I might as well have some half decent packaging for these great movies

*facepalm* I think he meant feature movie. Like a movie that comes to theaters first... and isn't intended to be split up into episodes.

You can read my analysis at the Madhouse.

Though, though the conversation it sparked created some interesting comments.

Yeah but look at the mess GM is in at the moment (and just when Vauxhull are now making good cars again), I bet they didn't predict that at the Futurama exibit.

EDIT: As for new Futurama well there already IS new Futurama..... the comics (although they aren't a patch on the earlier ones). As for new animated episodes the chances are anything between 0% and 100%.
