So it's canned.. but we're GETTING A MOVIE!!!????
Well, It's not offical yet. But there was this thing with a mail and all saying they weren't oredring new seasons
!iMmOrTaL! wrote it on Futurama-Madhouse:
"I wonder if Matt and David have ever considered doing a Kickstarter campaign for Futurama? You know, just in case Fox decide not to renew it."

It would be a great idea. I bet they could collect enough money to make a new season.
i'm pretty sure they would. If they get al least 10 bucks from every fan... Perhaps more, that would take an awfull lot of calculating... Great idea tough!

You can't lose hope when it's hopeless. You gotta hope more, then put your fingers in your ears and go, Blah! Blah! Blah! Blah!

What would Scruffy Do?

I can't believe, a show what more than thousands of people are like just ends?!
I think there will be a solution by time.
Anyway, on the picture, Why everybody look so happy? confused

In a perfect world, they'd keep passing on Futurama to a new network but each one would never officially cancel it, then, they get a massively huge production team to make brand new episodes exclusive to each network. That'd be the best.

The picture could mean something entirely different or because they know that while it's a sad day, they can't let the life of a TV show destroy their human lives.

He said:

"@DannyJC13 that photo is the crew (what's left anyway) wrapping the last day of season 7B this past week. Matt, DXC in the middle."

What's going on?! Someone at RDS taking the piss?

While I appreciate him addressing the photograph, he seems to be avoiding whether or not Futurama is cancelled. Maybe he simply doesn't know.

I'm going through all the stages of coping with death right now. I think I'm in denial.

Can you ask him a direct question, Danny?: Is Season 8A already in production now, or will it be in the nearest time?

I'm so depressed about this  frown I know it's there's slight hope of renewal now, but I feel pretty hopeless after that picture, it makes the email seem unlikely to be a hoax.

I feel like they probably take wrap pictures regardless, especially if they don't know if they're coming back or not. Think of it like an end-of-school-year photo if some of those attending don't know if they're transferring schools yet.

The e-mail thing is worrying, but since we (or I, anyway) don't even know whether the guy spreading it at Futurama Madhouse is trustworthy necessarily, I'm going to hold off on making any assumptions. Even if it's true, that's not to say this summer's ratings couldn't end up being an improvement and prompt another order then.

If this is the end, I'll be sad but satisfied. 7 seasons and 140 odd episodes is a great run, all things considered. Cutting it down to 72 was way more tragic.

Let's think positively for a moment. If the show does indeed end, we'll be on 140 episodes. That's almost double what we had originally.

Futurama is dead.. most likely.

Direct TV and the Olympics killed it.

And the Fourth of July.

It is seriously insane if Comedy Central nor Fox renews Futurama. Futurama has over 25 million likes on Facebook. That's like 1/40th of a billion. And there are like 7 billion people on Earth. That translates to 1/280 people like Futurama. And most of the world really doesn't have television, yet alone Futurama. And not everybody who watches Futurama is going to like it on Facebook, and if somebody likes Futurama, they've probably watched at least a couple of episodes. While Futurama may not have the caliber of Facebook likes compared to its animated adult comedy counterparts The Simpsons, Family Guy, and Comedy Central's keystone series South Park, it is much more liked than the just-renewed American Dad, the recently-canceled The Cleveland Show, and leaps and bounds better in every way Brickleberry.

"@DannyJC13 it is not in production. An official announcement of the show's future will be happening very soon."

His tone sounds very somber. I've heard this tone before, and it absolutely disgusts me. But, that's showbusiness, not real life. Sounds like it is not in production and not going to go into production. I'm just in the early stages of denial, and so I'm hoping either they switched to a different animation studio or maybe a film is in the works. But I know both are total bull...

I am curious about Rogers earlier tweet about good news. But if it isn't about Futurama, then it's either about the god-awful Brickleberry or his wife being pregnant with another baby. I'm not complaining about his many tweet about his baby boy or anything, and that's typical for new and involved parents. But I am saying that would be good tweet-worthy news.

That would be me (thank you Danny).  The e-mails I received purport to come from Rough Draft Studios and I recognize the name of the sender (who requested anonymity).   And as far as I can tell the e-mail really did originate from RDS, for whatever that's worth.  This is the one time I really hope I've been well and thoroughly trolled.  laff

Thanks for asking, Danny.

This does not sound good at all. I guess this may really be Futurama's last season. I hope the final episode isn't as messed up as Overclockwise was. It had a good plot and everything, but the way they handled it was pretty bad. Hopefully this final episode is handled in a much better way.

such as... Futurama is canned... but... we're getting a Bender spin-off!

We're doomed, doooooooomed!

The letter doesn't say it's been canceled it just says it hasn't been renewed (yet) so you should watch the new episodes this Summer. I don't think there would be waiting for something official if it was over and done with like Futurella.

I don't think that CC is physically able to cancel Futurama, which is FOX property. CC is only able to stop ordering new episodes from FOX. And that is equal to cancellation in my eyes.
