I'm not the biggest fan ever, but I do watch the show regularly. I just haven't bothered to keep up with news about it now that it's off the air, but someone told me Netflix is bringing it back for a 26 episode season. Is this true? I tried to Google it but I barely found any results.
As stated before:
Nope, there are no verified information regarding the show to be picked up by Netflix (or any other medium).
A certain amount of rumors were spread after Futuramas cancellation. Often on a stance saying "Yeah, yeah, the show was cancelled. Once again..it ALWAYS came back so far, right? So, this cancellation is basically just a break".
Also - motivated by wishful thinking - some fans WANTED to read more into various statements. One of the most famous examples was an interview with Katey Segal. She wanted the show to continue, and refered to Matt Groening having told her "Don't worry, we well be back" (not sure wether this is the literal quote). While this sounds like a "Cheer-Up" phrase, the verbal equivalent of a supportive pet on the shoulder, some read this as Matt's definite, verified and carved in stone statement for the show's revival.
Anyway, if you hear anything regarding Futurama's renewal that is NOT an official statement made by some official representative, you should not bestowe too much trust in it.
I want the show to stay dead, to be honest. Give it one final movie, and I'll be up for it.
Right now, I am sceptical about that "final movie". With the same writing staff, that movie might still suffer from the much criticised "too pop-cultury" mood that grew heavier during the new run. If I remember correctly, it was TNUK describing the show as "Society has changed, technology has changed...but it turns out people are still the same". While the new run often showed NNY as a copy of today, with maybe 1-2 additional technical gimmicks added.
Should they be able to make a movie that
- makes use of the timing-experience they showed in the Simpsons movie
- Get back from the pop-culture references and
- Find some last Sci Fi classic to take on
..well, in that case: Looking forward to it.
