"August 03, 2003

      In a recent issue of TV Guide, David X. Cohen briefly discusses the future of Futurama. In the blurb it stated that Cartoon Network might be interested in continuing the series becuase of its strong rating for a cable program. Cohen is quoted as saying "In my dream world, Futurama would become a Star Trek-like phenomenon. It would keep growing over the years, and suddenly there are movies and we're signing autographs for $3." Some exciting news after years of disappointment."

Would that be great, or what?
Oh please oh please oh please oh please!

Hi welcome to peel, that would really be cool is it did happen and I think it has been mentioned recently on this board, but a good heads up if anyone missed it.

Hopefully we won't have to wait quite so long for the first Futurama movie, and it will be set no later than 3005.
Futurama: The Next Generation - now that is something I would rather not see. For one, it would lose it's charm with Amy, Leela and Fry all settling down with kids, though Bender will still be there hopefully, Farnsworth should be dead by then, but maybe exist as a head in a jar which mechanical parts - actually that last bit would be quite cool  :p

Anyway, a lesson should be learned from the series of The Flintstones where it went to the next generation and the kids are actuall fully grown teenagers... (  :nono: )

The good thing about Futurama is that you don't have to worry about the characters aging.  Let's face it, the last few Star Trek movies, everyone was looking a bit long in the tooth.  On the otherhand, With the reunion of the cast on Futurama, they looked fine (well, except for Welshy). 

Of course, they could do Futurama, The Next Generation, but just have the original cast as heads in jars...., Bender would be Bender, of course, probably nicely upgraded to Nixon like proportions.

Seriously, though, we have seen the crew get younger, it might be nice to see them get older (and, yes, this is an old Star Trek plot).
