Is Brickleberry a cereal feature akin to a Crunchberry?

Has there been any indication of Fox and Comedy central being in any talks about renewing Futurama? I mean last time (spring of 2011 I think?), some of the voice actors were talking about being contacted by comedy central to see if they would be available for another run. Marice Lamarche(I know I'm spelling his name horrible wrong, you can kill me now) Was the first one to really spill the beans on talk like William Shatner day. He said he had just signed his contract for the show. It wasn't supposed to be announced publicly yet, so he was jumping the shark then.

Anyway, like I was asking, anyone have any indication of talks going on, Comedy
Central showing any interest, etc?

Well, not "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic", but he did attend a brony convention near where I live.

Strange "Saturday Morning Fun Pit" is the sixth episode next season. Or maybe Comedy Central will go all whack again and scramble up the order.

Danny, are you the one who's communicated with Eric Rogers? I can't remember...

So... has CC decided upon Futurama's fate??

Seems like other CC shows already have been renewed.

This made my heart stop. This is extremely momentous for  me, and I hope CC can be pensive enough to renew it for us hardcore nerds. Futurama doesn't need to be a vagrant again.

Voleume 7 sales were strong so it would be rather stupid to not renew a show that can generate so much in DVD sales. EG Family Guy

Like I've said earlier:

If it gets renewed, that's great! But if it doesn't, I won't be too bummed because I feel as though it's made a satisfying comeback. 52 new episodes is an impressive addition to the original run's 72.

Best Buy near me sells out of them really quickly in under a week in Blu Ray and DVD, and they get a lot of them in. So that's a good sign, no?

My thing about having more episodes is that the writing feels fresh, and I don't think the writers would like to stop being good. The long break gave them time to get better and work hard on skill building, something that other shows never had which drove them into the ground. (I'm looking at you, Law & Order SVU and Law & Order CI)

My biggest birthday wish for this year (I share my birthday with Martin Luther King Jr. in the United States) is for the return of Futurama. I would love to receive such news any time this month and that's all the birthday present I need.

Hey, we all got to hope. Comedy Central is probably doing negotiations with Fox. I think CC is owned by Turner which would explain a paperwork blockage.

Is Comedy Central renewing it's shows at a different time of the year now? Last time around, Futurama was renewed in Spring 2011, or that's when we got word on it.

Basically, they're going to need to renew the show sometime in Spring 2013 to allow well over a year to get the first 13 episode batch ready for airing in Summer 2014, and be well on their way working on the next batch of 13 for Summer 2015.

This might just be it... Mr Rogers seemed confident that the show was getting renewed, I quote : "can't wait to do something new until Futurama comes back."

This could be a good place to make such an announcement.

... until Futurama comes back.
Actually this part bothers me. Futurama don't need to come back right now. It's already back in 2010 and went through two production seasons. Maybe the quote is a sign of vague decision delay? As known Fox never officially cancelled the original run. Fox simply stopped ordering new episodes until CC picked Futurama.

Futurama's been too much of a rollercoaster ride, one that had several crashes along the way due to some stuff ups by Fox. Keep the coaster going! Make it more stable, like a train.

... wtf brain? Anyways, some consistency would be nice.

According to the Infosphere, FOX said they'll pick up the show if it ever ends things with Comedy Central...

Really? That seems questionable although awesome if true (and logical given how much of a mess the animation block on Fox is now, ratings wise - but when has Fox ever been logical?)

To be honest, I'd rather Comedy Central drop it if it means Fox will pick it up again. The budget would go up again and the show could hire in some new writers to give the show a much-needed boost of energy after the relatively poor 7A.

Well, usually they write all the episodes at the same time and stick the shitty ones first. I'm not sure how Futurama is produced, but usually the save the best for the end of the season to air.

Usually a show will stagger the writing of episodes of its show and that certainly seems to be how Futurama is produced now that each season is split in half.

I would find it kinda funny if FOX took back the show under it's wings. After how the Futurama staff portrayed them as incompetent monkeys, that'd be... awkward.

edit : I've looked up the FOX broadcasting company page on the infosphere. It says "FOX may consider airing Futurama again if the show proves to be successful on Comedy Central".

However, there is no source.

Back in 2009 (when the news came that the show was returning) the announcements noted that the contract gave FOX the option to air the shows first, in which case Comedy Central would get second dibs on them and pay a smaller fee for them. That may be where that comes from. Of course, that's not what transpired.

Not that awkward, I guess...
FOX has been subject to many critics/jokes/ridiculings.
The jokes in Futurama are probably on the harmless end, and not even worth an eyeroll to the Fox management.

Where did all this talk about the two-parter finale come from? I for one would be happy to see the show go out on a high this season, especially if they could get back to the consistently high quality stuff that they were producing in seasons 3 and 4.

If they had one all out funny episode as good as 'Prisoner of Benda' or 'Insane in the Mainframe'; a quality non-canon episode on a par with 'Reincarnation' and 'Anthology of Interest I'; and a two-parter finale with content as good as 'The Why of Fry' and 'The Sting' and 'The Late Philip J. Fry', then I would be more than happy to see the show finish after season 7B. On the other hand, if they could go back to consistently putting out good episodes, I wouldn't mind seeing another season, but at the moment I'm worried that the show could just fall off into mediocrity like The Simpsons.

I'm also glad that 7A finally went all out on the Fry/Leela relationship. Even if the season as a whole wasn't always funny or interesting, and the majority of the episodes were only of average quality, the running storyline and the development of the Fry/Leela relationship was what made 7A a success for me.

 I never really have hated a single episode. I love it all. But, naturama, really stunk.
Yuck. Also I found that a squashed kif was a bit unessecery. Even if it wasn't canon. But another thing, the website I normally watch new futurama on, (REDACTED), no longer has any futurama! (I'm in the uk)
