Just like the first time.

Look how that turned out.

You can take that as optimistic or pessimistic, they both kind of work.

April Fools is almost over and we didn't have any big pranks here. Alright then, fine. I guess it'll have to be me that has to do this.

Futurama has been officially cancelled by the bigger idiots at CC. Everyone panic and such.

Also, Brickleberry and The Cleveland Show have both been renewed for 10 more Seasons and the Futurama Movie has been dropped by the writers. Good Night Everybody.

Also, 7B will have an episode about Justin Beiber and One Direction.

Okay, that was a little too obvious.

Yeah, you forgot to say that it's the heads of Justin Bieber and One Direction. Wait, I got it. Justin Bieber and One Directions fame thanks to the egos of the fans they absorb was high enough to give them sub atomic powers that allow them to travel through time and make it to the Year 3000 and play for them.

Either that, or Fry made another photocopy of his butt when he traveled back to the past or something like that.

Peter from "Family Guy" is becoming a new crew member on Futurama.
Thus now that Seth has joined the Futurama crew FOX has just renewed it for 12 seasons.

What if someone very kind with twitter ask to Eric Roger what he think about the renewal. I mean if he think there are good chance or some rumor that can make us a little less worried because I'm dying here. (sorry for the English essors)

Well.. he really is just an writer/employee, it's possible rabid fans may find out before him even. I'd say ask DXC... he'll have a better idea of what the chances truly are.

I guess Eric Rogers is informend about the show's Future.
After all, an employer cannot expect his writing crew to "stay on hold" until he makes his mind, and expects them to turn down other job opportunities on a "just in case" basis.

His allowance to MENTION the show's future in public is something completely different, though. A renewal/cancellation represents -even in case of a cartoon show- Business insider information, about which the employes will have to remain silent.

And no writer (wishing to ever get a Job again) will reveal that information on his own.

but since we (or I, anyway) don't even know whether the guy spreading it at Futurama Madhouse is trustworthy necessarily,

Dude's the admin, doubt he'd pull a stunt like this. hmpf


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
It would be perfect ask something to him, but how?
Well, Red_Line could email the source in RDS back asking them about further cancellation/renewal details...

You'd be surprised. In television especially, I'm pretty sure it's common. In fact, it has happened to Futurama before; even discounting cancellations, considering that most of the writers had already had to go off and do other things (or just not do anything) between production of seasons 6 and 7. While David X. was still there to wrap up production on the episodes, most of the writing was long-since done by the time the show as renewed again, and there was no need for the writers to be at the offices.

This is an unfortunate thing with a lot of shows. They often aren't told until the very last minute whether they will still have jobs in a week, and networks often adamantly refuse to let them know beforehand. "Community" cast members (that show is out of production right now, by the way) have attested to getting ready to clean out their lockers when they've found out about renewals....and they usually found out about them from the FANS. "Angel" was infamously cancelled precisely because it was doing so well that the creator dared ask the network for an earlier renewal notice so the cast and crew wouldn't have to start looking for jobs come May without any idea of whether they were coming back. Networks are absolutely this shitty to the people who work for them, and there's a lot of politics and pettiness that goes into it, too.

That said.

Yes, this. There's absolutely no way David Cohen is allowed to blab openly about this if we don't already have an announcement.

Anyway, I hope this years countdown has a lot of juicy concept art.

I have a question (probably a dumb one), though: this summer, I may be going someplace without easy access to a television; is there anyway for me to get the new episodes downloaded on to my laptop that is not illegal?

They're upload to iTunes USA hours after the broadcast. You could buy a season pass to get the new episodes instantaneously.

Thank you for the info!

That's crazy about Unmentionable. I knew about what a creepy annoyance he was on here, but somehow I had missed the fact that he's threatening the writers. I honestly can't tell if he's mentally ill or is just pulling some elaborate "joke." Either way, it's sad.

I'm so excited about CTF, though! As Danny said, I can't wait for the intense speculation and development of new theories!

Yeah, that's not going to happen.

About the countdown! I'm so excited! I can't wait for see concept art and start to think about crazy theories big grin

I propose a countdown to the countdown. Though we don't know exactly when the countdown will begin, we can at least prep ourselves and get excited over it again.

PS.as always, I'm sorry for the bad english.

You did a pretty decent job if English isn't your native language. I gotta ask- what is your native tongue?

Hey! I like that idea about the countdown to the countdown,we should make a thread for it and do something every day. (Maybe see an episode for day and review it?, I dunno,is just a suggestion)

And thank you! (even if I studied it since years ago I stopped to go to classes,that's why I guess is gettin a bit rotten) and I speak spanish (I'm mexican, but too bad that we don't have robots like Bender yet frown)

In more-ontopic news, just spotted this, someone tweeted Eric asking:

"@EricRogersLA that's awesome! When does the new season start?!"

He said:

"@ZakirGhazi In June! More detailed details coming very soon, my friend! #futurama"

That was yesterday. big grin

To reply to the news, "very soon" is probably very very soon.

I hope so, Eric said we'd get an official announcement about the future of the show at some point but when I asked him again a few weeks later he said there was nothing to announce. I think he just said that to stop panic among us fans about the show possibly being cancelled yet again.

Yippee!

However, I've been following him, and it doesn't seem like he knows whats going on as far as renewal negotiations. Maybe Comedy Central is waiting for its new shows to bomb before renewing. Or maybe Comedy Central is considering renewing Futurama for a spring/fall season instead to pair it up with South Park.

As of this year, South Park has been reduced to 10 episodes a season instead of 14, and it will air them all at once starting in September, instead of the first 7 airing in Spring and the final 7 airing in Autumn. tongue

That's... fascinating. How come? Is it because Matt Stone and Trey Parker want to put more focus and energy into their new studios and other projects? They'll probably make a film adaptation of their hit broadway musical "The Book of Mormon" soon.

Most likely yes, plus it will let them put more time and quality into South Park. smile
