We have enough ALL-NEW episodes to air for the entire 2002/03 Season!!
We don't pick up ANY show for the 2003/04 Season until MAY 2003 - so check back
with us in a year to see if we have renewed FUTURAMA for another Season!!

I didn't even ask anything about the years in which Futurama wil be around just the seasons. Seems like they decided to make a few more "automated messages". notice the !! at the end of the reply's. Do they think were stupid. I replied to the latest message and I didn't get a replay. I guess they ran out of automated message.
If you haven't seen these messages see if they do the same thing to you. Keep replying.

The decision probably got pre-empted due to coverage of the Utah Tractor Pull or something...

They will use the extra episodes that they didn't show for season 5 to make a season 6.  tongue

More baloney from Fox.  It is true that they normally announce program renewals in May.  However, they have to order episodes for animated series earlier than May, due to the time required for production.  If Fox doesn't order more Futurama episodes before next February, then there won't be a season 6.

It may be possible to do a 6th season with some season 4 episodes. Remember they didn't show "The Route of All Evil"? That was a season 3 episode. Thank God Futurama doesn't have a continuing storyline, that would really mess things up.

BTW, nice sig Lesotho.

Since they are starting season 5 in November, they could have enough pre-empted to run over into a season 6.

They'll probably take pre-emption to a new level.  They'll pre-empt the entire season 5, play them the next year as season 6.

Not unlikely, and they would still have the nerve to call the episodes ALL-NEW!!!

I never got an answer to my countless emails, but I did get an answer (sort of) to my written letters. They both came back, unopened, with a small sticker slapped across the address' saying "Addressee no longer here". And it wasn't the US Postal Service, it was the FOX' own post service that couldn't locate their own president and chairman.

I think FOX will either:
(a) show all 16 remaining episodes and then formally cancel the show (the swine!), or
(b) show 12-13 of the remaining episodes, carryover the rest for Season 6, and order a new production batch (hey, I can dream, can't I?).

Secretary: Sir we have another crate loads of letters, they look like they're Futurama fan letters again.
President (cowers behind chair) : T-Tell them we've gone to lunch!
Secretary:....okey-dokey...

I emailed foe, I mean Fox again. I asked if they would put Futurama in a better time slot than Sunday 7pm.
They replied:

We love it just where it is!

I don't think Fox is going to update the official site. I went to Ask Fox again. And questioned about that. Didn't answer. Probably because I said something like: Do you listen to fans? It goes to show there lying about likeing Futurama. At least there could be an episode guide. But they'll just say they like it without any effort put into promoting Futurama.

Well, have they been aired before? No? Then that must mean they are ALL-NEW
