If Futurama come in any way, shape, or form, I'll be happy no matter what. Just don't come back as a crappy show/movie(which is impossible).

Movie. It will be enough to end the story in proper way. And it must be about Fry and Leela, with a romantic scene in the end.

I would prefer a Movie... it is more likely to happen, not that either will ever happen (but we can hope)!

Please don't flame me for saying this, but cut the poor guy some slack about the double post.  He apologized, so there is no reason to continue bickering about such a minor issue.

A new season, I don't know I've seen great T.V. shows break into movies before and they've all been a disater I just don't want that to happen to Futurama.

Assuming that they could realistically get together enough of the original animators and writers for a full 22 episode show, and have it be both successful and as good as the series in the procees, I would prefer new episodes.

The problem with that idea, however, is that it really isn't realistic.  Even if it comes back (and don't get me wrong, I'd be incredibly excited if it did), there's always the possibility it would be a let down, and I don't really want to see that.

On the other hand, I somehow have a better feeling about a movie (or possibly movie trilogy), both in terms of realisticness and quality.  Plus frankly I'd just love to watch an epic Futurama movie on the big screen, as I've always felt both its storylines and its animation were more warranted for such treatment then any other animated show out there.  New, and good, episodes would be great, but I think I'd lean towards having a movie (or again, a trilogy) as a last hurrah for this great series.

To Clarify, I picked those four extra options as a little pun for having "Raging Bender" as this websites classic of the day. Gender Bender, Amy saying "Spla", and Mom yelling "Bitch slap that bitch ass bitch!" (It's in the deleted scenes) were sort of jokes to homage it. I didn't expect anyone to vote for them, even though it would have been kind of cool.

To answer the question if I have David Cohen's interview where he wants to do a movie, you bet I do!

Cohen: It's a long shot. When they first started airing it, that was the furthest thing from our minds. But it has done so well they have contacted us to discuss that possibility, just to raise the general discussion. There's nothing moving forward. It's quite a long shot because a lot of parties would have to agree to terms how it would work, and Fox would have to be involved even though they wouldn't be airing it or possibly producing it any more, which makes it an extremely complicated proposition. Also, the animation for our show is extremely lavish by TV standards and therefore very expensive, so it's not clear if it could be done for cable TV. All of that said, it's at least the subject of discussion now, where it wasn't a couple of months ago. So you never know. I think what I see as ultimately a more likely possibility, also a long shot but not as much of a long shot, is we might be able to do a movie or two down the line. That would be great as far as I'm concerned, because that would be a way at pretty low risk you can keep the franchise going. As far as animated movies go, it would be very low budget whereas for TV it's very high budget, so we could keep the storyline going, it would look great, and because the show has a worldwide audience, I think it would be a pretty safe bet for them to make their money back. That's what I'm personally lobbying everybody for and hoping somebody will see it my way.

He might not be a mod but I am, don't double post, or spoil an otherwise good poll with stupid options.

I'd like to see another series but I can't see it happening, a movie would be a nice alternative.

apparently not...

And a new season, of course. At the moment, I feel that the more we get, the better...

(though, of course, if by some quirk of fate we get new ones, and they turn out to be awful, I reserve the right to reneg my previous statement).

"Raging Bender" isn't "classic of the day".  It's been listed as PEEL's classic episode since October 28th.  I doubt too many people pay attention to the "classic episode" thing anymore, which would explain why no-one made the connection.

It was supposed to change something like every week, but methinks the Powers That Be have lost enthusiasm.

1. make movie

4. show is green lighted for another season

Mathematically, a new season would be best. More plots, more jokes, more hours, more Zoidberg... But experence-wise, a movie would rule.  I'm really torn on the issue. I think I would go for a movie, just because I would be more worried about the quality slipping from what has existed with a series than with a movie. Still, I would be overjoyed with either one.

Sometimes I am glad that there it stopped when it did, I mean I would love to see some fresh shows but think about it.
We never got any awful clip shows, we never got an awful Fry and Leela getting together plot.  Sure, you can say that the writers would have made it good but can you think of any other sitcom that has managed to get two main characters together and not lost something?

Look, we'd all work for nothing, so let's just hire us all as animators. Sure, the drawing wouldn't be that "great"...but...

I can't think of anyway to end this post, so I'll just shut up

I like the way you think
  big grin  that would be a great way to do it... make money off the movie, then close off with a season...

Also, thanks DC1f for the link and quote, it's good to hear David X. talking about new Futurama things   smile  .

I think that a movie would be smarter for the life of the series.

If a movie would do well at the box office (and it would almost have to do reasonably well), chances are that someone (Fox or otherwise) would bring the show back for at least one more season, probably more.  Then they could wrap the series up with a sequal, and everyone's happy.

My vote is 'movie.'

Groening and Cohen have always wanted to do a movie, they've never made any effort to hide that. The problem is financing, and with FOX not liking the show....

I voted for a new season. 22 half-hour episodes > 2 hour movie.

A new season would have more time, but a movie might result in new seasons.

Hmmmm. Instant gratification wins (even though this is all hypothetical).

I believe if there was to be a Futurama movie made, it would most likely lead to more seasons.

I mean how could it not?

Becuase the movie would probably get low ratings.
presumably it would continue on from the series which wouldn't be of interest to people that didn't follow the series.

I would like to see a new season of Futurama, instead of a movie.  Because like what User_names_suck said, a movie might not do well at the box office.

Ummm...22 episodes...roughly $1.2 million dollars per episode...$26.4 million dollars.

Only FOX would invest that much money for an animated program. Cartoon Network could never afford it.

I could really picture Futurama on the big screen. It might be because of the whole Science-Fiction style of the show, and maybe b/c plenty of other cartoons have gotten movie deals. Some got new episodes or funding and some didnt.

Let's just say, if there was a Futurama movie, that we shouldnt care if it didnt go back on TV. That we should sit down, relax, and enjoy the  whole experience.

I would love to see a whole new season because it would probably develop storylines a lot further than a movie ever could.
