The return to TV of Futurama
In the revival, effectively a 10-episode eighth season to be followed by another ten-episode season, “new viewers will be able to start here, while longtime fans will recognize the benefits of decades-old mysteries, including developments in Fry and Lela’s epic love story, the mysterious contents of Nibbler’s litter box, the secret history of evil Robot Santa and the whereabouts of Kif and Amy’s tadpoles,” Hulu said. “Meanwhile, there’s a new pandemic in town as the (Planet Express) team explores the future of vaccines, bitcoin, cancel culture and streaming TV.”
Futurama tells the story of a naïve young delivery man who, while delivering a pizza to a science lab, is accidentally trapped in a cryo chamber for 1,000 years. Ended up in 3000 New York, Fry discovers he has an older nephew, Professor Farnsworth, owner of an intergalactic transportation company. So she starts working for him, making friends with a monocle named Lela and an insolent beer-drinking robot, Bender.
The English-language version will feature all of the original voice actors – Billy West (Fry), Katey Sagal (Lela), Tress MacNeille (Mamma), Maurice LaMarche (How) (Mom), Lauren Tom (Amy), Phil LaMarr (Hermes), David Herman (Scruffy) and also John DiMaggio (Bender), who initially refused to sign the agreement.
