New Episodes of "Futurama" Coming to Comedy Central
Taking a play off Family Guy’s playbook, The Hollywood Reporter reports that Comedy Central is ordering 26 episodes of Futurama to be aired in mid-2010. The new episodes will pick up after the 4th DTV movie, Into the Wild Green Yonder left off.
As with Family Guy, 20th Century Fox Television has the right to shop the new Futurama episodes to a broadcast network. No word on which network, if any, will air the episodes.
