I was just at TLZ and I noticed this banner:
Futurama On Hiatus: The Save Futurama Petition currently has 101894 signatures... and Fox's reply was to cut the season short, scheduling the season finale for April 12th, leaving us with a 12-episode season.
What the?!  When did this happen?!  I am sickened...  puke
And to Fox...  up yours

This probably explains why Fox has enough eps for another season.

That leaves FOX with 16 episodes for the 5th season.  Time for more letters to FOX executives.

Or, going on the current trend, four seasons of four episodes.

Edit: Realized it was a typo, and old news was posted in the "next week's episodes" thread.

My guess is 9 episodes next season and 7 the one after. I am really pissed off with Fox, I was really looking foward to seein "The Route of All Evil" which is a Season 3 episode, yet they still aern't showing it!

The terrorists hit the wrong target while on their "Route of All Evil" on September 11th, Fox headquartes is where they should have been heading.

Don't forget the many weeks between episodes in which reality shows, films, and even repeat The Simpsons prevented episodes to air. I think there was a month gap between "AOI 2" and "Love & Rocket" mad

Corrosively coherently curious personality abrasive expired bought bandwagon Devils Yes that is correct, if it was shown on May 5th like it was originally meant to then we would have had some more episodes in between "30% Iron Chef" and the finale. "The Rote of All Evil" would have been the only production Season 3 episode left, so it would have made sense for it to have aired in that gap.

where is it official that futurama's season ends on the 21st or are people saying that because "where no fan has gone before" is airing on that date?

My thoughts on the whole season cancelling Futurama thing: The reason why they are not makeing new episodes and they are not showing as many is to try to make some of the episodes a 6th season and it to much money to make new shows with it's poor rateings it has   had.                                               
So they reason why they make crapy show that cost nothing to make and gets high rateings (some of the time) can stell be on the air!

Screw the Fox Corperation.  They ruin everthing they run.  They take the best shows and beat them to death.  They take their best new and upcoming shows and SCREW them.  Then they buy the Los Angeles Dodgers and procced to run them into the ground.  Fox....(i wont contine)

I think Homerjay has a good point, I'm thinking the same thing. I think Fox may have just realised they could milk a sixth season out of the holdovers, hence the sudden change of heart causing an early finale.

Well, I just checked the American TV Guide website - I'm Canadian - and we've got "Where No Fan Has Gone Before" airing on April 21st. So it looks like we do get an early season finale. So now it looks like there will only be two more episodes this season.

Well, I've also had a sudden change of heart... I will never watch anything new on FOX ever. There's no hope of redemption. They've completely lost my patronage forever.

I suppose in retrospect we get to see at least 12 eps.

Personally I don't see what all this anger and swearing is gonna accomplish, if a Fox Exec looks on the board and sees all this, then it's gonna do the show more harm than good, not that it seems to have a future, but one can always live in hope.

Up until now the newest episode of Futurama to have aired is 4ACV3 "Love & Rocket", it seems absurd to jump all the way to 4ACV11 "Where no Fan Has Gone Before".

A Thought occurs.

April 12 is a Friday (this one) and not Sunday which is bizarre even for Fox.

Do you mean the 14th April or 12th May which are Sundays?

Or is this a belated April Fool?

I noticed that too, but I think it's a typo since the last episode is airing April 21st according to TV Guide.

I'm kind of torn.  Part of me thinks that it's a typo at TV Guide, but the other part thinks that it's just Fox's evil way of getting back at all of us who want to keep the show alive.  But if it's true, I don't think I'll ever be able to watch Grounded for Life, Greg the Bunny or the Simpsons ever again...  cry

What has politeness ever accomplished? Nothing, that's what.

It's not like FOX execs would read this board and say "wow, these internet nerds aren't cussing at our stupidity. What a polite bunch...you know, maybe we should renew that show". We are whiney internet nerds, you have to give us some time to vent our anger.

On that note, fuck FOX. What are they going to do? 16 episodes seems like too many for next season. I don't think they'll stretch it to two seasons, 8 episodes per season is ridiculous even for FOX.

Is this payback for the petition and negative publicity it earned Fox?

You think they couldn't possibly hate the show any more and then what do they do?

Nothing fux does surprises me anymore, I think it will be stretched out for at least another 2 seasons, there is no way I can see fux showing 16 episodes in 1 season, they will probably never show the last episode so Futurama will never be released from its contract to fux

12 episodes!? What the hell is Fox's problem!??
I was hoping for a nice long season 4.
How many episodes from season 3 still haven't been shown?
The thing that really annoys me is the fact that the episodes for seson 4 are all out of order anyway! I was looking forward to new stuff happening after "Love and the Rocket" but then i found out that "Leela's homeworld" and other later seson 4 episodes were made before "Love and the Rocket"

So i'll ask again, what is Fox's problem?

Theres quite a bit of this ^^^ in this thread and my reply would be 'probably not'.

Like I said in threads-elsewhere I don't think FOX pays any attention to fan opinion, good or bad.

Conspiracy Theory
FOX puts Futurama in a 7pm timeslot because they reckon KoTH, Simpsons et al are better audience draws for peak-time viewing.

Futurama then gets pre-empted so many times during Nov/Dec/Jan that the schedulers realise that they have a huge batch of unseen eps.

They get out their calculators (or their secrataries with calculators) and work out that by the end of the 'season' (Apr/May) they will still have around 16 eps left.

Assuming they schedule Futurama in the same timeslot next season they can expect a healthy amount of 'pre-empting' and therefore make what they have left last a full season.

Just a theory... But it does hinge on FOX schedulers being allowed to play with the company brain cell.
