I'm confident Fox is aware there's still strong interest in continuing the show among its cult fans.  However, that doesn't necessarily mean further production would be profitable, as Comedy Central reportedly has learned (allegedly, the last three seasons have been unprofitable ... one has to ponder if the show's ratings would've fared better had the show aired outside the heart of the summer).

By the time a new DVD release would be available, DVD sales will be off as much as 50% of their 2007 peak; there's no way Fox would take that risk without a partner, such as Comedy Central, purchasing the television rights.  And that may not be likely.

I'm getting antsy for some kind of sneak peek in the crossover.

Could be almost a year away if they decide to make it the season 26 premiere...

Good chance it will be the Season 26 premiere, since they started making the episode last month.

There are multiple articles "confirming" that it will, indeed, by the season 25 finale as opposed to the 26 premiere, but I'm fairly sure that these articles are just based on not knowing that there was a possibility of it being the season 26 premiere in the first place.

It's animation... anything could delay it.

Remember, "The Man Who Came To Be Dinner" was originally the Simpsons season 24 finale, then it got pulled.
Next it was due to be the opener for season 25 and then was promptly pulled again.

NOTHING IS SET IN STONE... it will air in season 27 most likely!

I actually recall a couple of episodes that were produced for Season 7 being held over to Season 9.

Just one - Lisa's Sax. Though I believe it may have been held over for so long due to unforeseeable delays in its production (much like Futurama's "The Route of all Evil") as opposed to Fox just being 'tarded.

Are you sure about that?

"Lisa's Sax" was a season 8 holdover, as far as I can tell - one of the four episodes produced for season 8 by Al Jean & Mike Reiss along with "The Springfield Files", "Simpsoncalifragilisticexpiala(Annoyed Grunt)cious" and "Simpson Tide" - the latter of which was also held over till season 9.

It has a season 7 production code.

Its production code is 3G02.

Season 7's production line was made up of 3F production codes, whereas season 8 was mostly 4F.

The 4 episodes I mentioned were some sort of strange, extra episodes showrun by Al Jean & Mike Reiss when they weren't showrunners on the show any more.

They all have a 3G production code, and I don't think that makes them part of season 7's production line, particularly. Or does it starting with 3 mean that it's part of 7? I think they were made as part of season 8, though that might not be correct.

What must be considered is that it was recently announced that an upcoming Simpsons episode where a major character (voiced by an actor that's won an Emmy for that voice) dies, originally planned to be shown during season 25, looks more likely to be broadcast at the beginning of season 26. That would mean that 'Simpsonorama' mightn't be the Season 26 premiere; either it gets pulled back as the S25 finale or delayed beyond next year's premiere (unlikely because of the episode's significance, I'm sure Fox would would love to promote the hell out of it as a finale).

Hmmm, maybe you're right. I just remember seeing the 3. confused

So X-Box One might be picking up Futurama?

That could be good, but I don't have an X-Box so I would have to buy one.

You joke... but that may just f'n happen.

There were a few KOTH episodes Fox almost seemingly forgot to air until years later, not to mention they never actually aired the last four episodes or so and skipped right to the finale, instead shoving 4 'sodes into syndication for their world premieres.

Fox can always refuse to air it and just release it on it's own DVD later!
They did that to a banned FG episode.

Hell, you don't know.. they could save it for the Simpsons series finale, it's FOX, they are crazy!!!

If there _ever_ will be a Simpsons series finale.   Why can't Matt Greoning just give up on The Simpsons and concentrate on Futurama?   He should've done that from the get-go.

Futurama would probably still be going on if he did.....

And The Simpsons no longer being on the air would affect Comedy Central's decision to cancel Futurama why???

Season 7's production line was made up of 3F production codes, whereas season 8 was mostly 4F.

I'm pretty sure that they were produced at the same time as the rest of Season 7, since they have the number 3 in their production codes. They probably would have had 4G production codes had they been produced as part of Season 8.

You don't see the correlation between Groening's involvement in The Simpsons and Futurama's ratings? Surely we can blame that, because life is not fair.

Instead of Netflix or XBOX (because some of us can't download Netflix or afford an XBOX) why not have The CW pick up Futurama? (formerly the WB)

MyNetwork would be better!   After all, they show Family Guy and American Dad reruns on there.

I don't think that The CW would be interested in Futurama. The CW's primetime schedule is mostly (if not entirely) of hour-long dramas. Also, The CW doesn't get very good ratings compared to the other four networks; I don't think any of its shows have ever ranked in the top 50 of the season. Another thing is that UPN had a few cartoons in primetime back in the day, none of which were very successful ratings-wise.

MyNetwork would be better!   After all, they show Family Guy and American Dad reruns on there.

MyNetworkTV is no longer a broadcast network. It is a syndicator whose local affliates set up their own schedules. Family Guy reruns might be syndicated on your local MNT affliate, while they might be syndicated on my local Fox affliate. I don't think first-run syndication would be a very good idea.

I've never even heard of this 'MyNetworkTV', so I doubt it'd be a very good home for a more mainstream show like Futurama.

You might just not know what it's called (I didn't at first). Don't you have a TV station whose name sounds like an abbreviation of the name of your city? For example, here in Philly, ours is called PHL.

The CW is a money-losing network; it continues to exist only because CBS/WB own the rights to most of its low-budget programming and ultimately turn a profit in licensing the content out.  Considering Futurama's high(er) budget and that its rights are owned by Fox, it'll never air on the CW.  Not to mention it's outside the network's target demographic of teenage girls.  Several years ago, the CW cut loose its highest rated program (Smackdown) because it was unable to sell ads.

MyNetworkTV is a programming service - it does not air first-run programming.  Futurama repeats may be a possibility, but forget about new episodes.

He can't consintrate on Futurama if no-one wants to air it on their channel. They had so many problems getting fox to approve the pilot
Edit: I would love it to continue I'm a HUGE fan but Matt sadly can't do the show if no network wants it (which they should)
Sorry my head is a little fuzzy, Im laying in my bed at 3:24 am right now

Guys Futurama is in the sims3, of you know me on other sites than you know how much I am into this game and what it means to me, but that beyond the point, while playing Into the Future, I was upgrading a Plum-Bot and saw two Sind that looked just like fry and Leela and it turns the Plum-bit was called Bend0
Plus check out this under families, it says they worked for a delivery company

Come on guys that's pretty amazing and a nice touch for them to add

Hey, that's awesome!  That's how Leela would look with two eyes!  The robot is hilarious looking!  It looks like Fry, Leela, and Bender are in the Real Housewives of Sims!  There should be some that look like Hermes, Amy, and Zoidberg, too!

If all else fails if Futurama does come back, it show go back to Adult Swim.  Until then, the only source of new Futurama we'll see is the comics.   And who knows when issue #70 will be.

Did anyone get issue #69 yet?  PM me some spoilers if someone did.

Strangers On A Train was a 1952 movie.  Criss Cross!  Anyway, I know a channel that can pick up Futurama.  There's a new channel called "ThisTV."  It shows James Bond movies, and Addams Family reruns.

Look it up.

ThisTV? You mean that channel that's been on for 6 years, which airs exclusively old TV shows from the 60's and movies, with no original programming on it whatsoever? That TV channel? Made exclusively to air only movies and classic TV shows?

By now, you've realized that I'm in disagreement with your statement and wish you reconsider what channels would actually have a chance and want to revive Futurama for another run.
