Fanboys and fangirls get ready to set your fun-meter to laughgasmic. Futurama is coming back.
I’ll give you a moment to let that sink in.
Futurama, the hit show from creator Matt Groening, will be making its Direct to DVD debut in November with Futurama: Bender’s Big Score. Three more films will be released through 2008. Even better news – all the original creative team and voice cast are back as well.
The plot centers on the “Futurama” crew fighting to save Earth in an epic battle against nudist alien Internet scammers. Bender the robot soon comes under the alien’s spell and is sent back in time to loot the Earth of its greatest treasures; at one point he runs into Al Gore, who guest stars as himself, during the 2000 presidential recount. Other guest stars include Coolio and Sarah Silverman.
Futurama is also set to return to cable with 13 episodes being produced for Comedy Central.
