Those who have purchased the new Futurama episodes on DVD can answer this question: Did Rich Moore (Supervising Director for the series) return?

He annoyed Matt Groening on the DVD commentaries, so I was wondering if they offered him his old job back.

Rich Moore took shots at The Simpsons (Matt Groening's baby) a couple times in the commentary.  Once, on an X-Mas episode, he took a shot at the Simposons Christmas episode where Marge pulled a jar of money out of her hair.  Another time, he said, "The Simpsons..." in such a sing-song way as to provoke Matt Groening to say, "Why do you say that so derisively?"

In answer to your original question, Zubans, I don't think Rich Moore is involved with the new run at all. Peter Avanzino has been the series' supervising director since the movies, and I haven't seen Moore's name in the credits at all. Kind of a shame, since he was pretty entertaining in the commentaries, but I'll assume he went on to bigger and better things.
