The new episodes coming up are left over from the 4ACV production run which haven't been aired before. There have been no new episodes made for over a year (IIRC). The show will have a proper finale in the episode 'The Devil's Hands Are Idol Playthings' when it airs.

well they haven't been recently made, if that's what you mean. The show wasn't cancelled, merely not renewed (exact same thing) so the producers had no warning to finish the program.
Perhaps if they had you could expect a brilliantly memorable episode rather than just another episode.  frown
Oh, I made myself sad.

They're left over from production season four. So no, they're not "new" episodes, they're just left over from season four. However, by the last few episodes they knew they were probably gonna get kancelled*, so they crafted "The Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings" to be a semi-series finale.

"The Devil's Hands" doesn't tie everything up, but it certainly doesn't not tie everything up.

Or something like that.

yeah wut i meant by a proper finale is a finale that the writers wrote as a finale. like an episode where leila and Fry get married or something. that sucks that they didnt though.

'Devil's Hands' was wrote as a finale. It was also wrote to be slightly open-ended in case the show was ever brought back though.

Not meaning to be offtopic, but I just found it amusing when evilmonkey spelled Leela wrong.  Leila is my sister's name and is pronounced Lay-la...

Now to be semi on-topic.  I can't wait for all these final episodes to be released so that way the anticipation will finally wither away and know even more how great this show was.

I'd probably give it a 1.15037...

It will most likely be discontinued, although there's still a little tiny chance it won't.

Evilmonkey: It's catching up to Family Guy's ratings, check out CGEF.

BenderUK19:  Probably, but the staff left ends open, so maybe, maybe not.

Didn't Futurama do better than "Family Guy"? In April Futurama had 4 episodes rated above the best Family Guy episodes. Futurama landed #6, #9, #10 and #17, while the best Family Guy landed at #22.

As for the show coming back? 0.003

Even better, shows we've finally fended off Family Guy, and showed who's king among cancelled animation shows.

I love Family Guy too, but i'd have to say I love Futurama more. Long live them both with good DVD packages!

Nope, there are still 4 episodes left to air.  You can read little previews about them at www.gotfuturama.com
