Let's not repeat that thing from 10 years ago. Futurama had its run.
The final season of Futurama is airing on Comedy Central. Sometime after that season ends, can the show conceivably return to Adult Swim, or will there be some contractual problems with that?
I remember reading in this earlier thread that Adult Swim can't air The Simpsons until the show is cancelled. Does the same hold true for Futurama?
What I am unsure of is whether or not the produced for Comedy Central episodes would be allowed to air on Adult Swim, if they did get the rights to air the show again. Would Comedy Central retain the rights to those specific episodes, or would those rights revert to 20th Century Fox?
I wouldn't mind seeing it on [as] again. I honestly haven't been keeping up with it since it left [as], so it would give me some reason to finally watch the Comedy Central episodes.

Total Episodes To Watch: 99 Canon, 172 Total
Episodes So Far: 69
If Futurama did return, I think it would be perfect as a lead-in for Toonami. It would likely perform better than Boondocks currently does, and there's more of a crossover audience between Futurama and Toonami. Fittingly enough, Futurama used to to lead Toonami out for Adult Swim on Saturdays back when it was last airing there.
Meh, King of the Hill has already filled the void on AS, and CC still needs more than just South Park.
If it ever does return, you can forget about any more new episodes. AS didn't have the budget then and it doesn't now.
I would have to say "No" as well, because Adult Swim pretty much got the rights to air it in the first place because no one else was interested in it, since they were in their "dumping ground for failed prime-time animated sitcoms" phase at the time.
What do you get when you put three friends in a recording booth once a week, screen old anime, and tell them to make sense of it? You get the Anime of Yesteryear Podcast! Tune in each week as we kick back and discuss anime of old, both the well-known and the obscure. (Updates Weekly!)
And now broadcasting on Toon Radio every Thursday night at 10pm EST!
All it takes is money.
It depends on how determined Comedy Central is to hold on to the rights when the license is up for renewal (for seasons 1-4).
For seasons 5-8, it depends on how the rights work, (because of CC helping fund them, do they have co-ownership, or is everything still owned by FOX?) but I would imagine it would be more expensive to get than seasons 1-4.
Personally, I would like to see Archer on Adult Swim.
When do Family Guy's rights expire? 2015? It would be interesting to see if anybody would try to outbid Turner for the rights.
That one show about that one cat that did that one thing that involved doing some things that he wouldn't normally do or should be doing but he did it anyway for laughs?
You know what that thing did? It spawned a lot of naughty internet things.
There may be contractual problems, IMHO.
