How can you be so sure?
Comedy Central reruns its most popular shows long after they end (i.e Chapelle's Show and Key and Peele)
Besides Syfy didn't buy exclusive rights to show, they're just airing it. Similar to Friends' situation on Nick at Nite and TBS.
A lot of shows don't have exclusive rights. The Goldbergs is on both Nick@Nite (Nickelodeon) and Pop.
Actually some of their recent original series have been more SciFi based then supernatural based so that is false.
Despite its move to Syfy, Futurama will find a new streaming home in Hulu starting next Monday.
Good news for all the cord cutters out there. What was Netflix's loss is clearly Hulu's gain.
Hulu is half-owned by NBCUniversal so it makes sense.
Did Comedy Central lose the Futurama rights?
I don't think so. Like @JTOONSAnimation said, Syfy didn't buy the exclusive rights, so I think it'll still air on Comedy Central.
Ooooh, awesome! Thanks for this info!
I was halfway through watching the reruns when Netflix took it down.
To everyone thinking that Futurama is leaving Comedy Central to join Syfy:
Comedy Central will still air the series. Syfy will air it on Saturday, Monday an Tuesday mornings and Comedy Central will air it weekday afternoons/evenings.
If nothing else, here's hoping that the episodes aren't edited for time.
It still blows my mind that CC even edited the episodes that they themselves initially aired.
I wouldn't imagine the show leaving CC considering they were the ones who produced it.
Futurama wont leave Comedy Central for a long time. Like I said before popular shows on the network tend to get rerun for a long time.
Drawn Together ended in 2007 and reran until late 2011/early 2012 and briefly in January 2017, despite only having 36 episodes.
Crank Yankers ended in 2005 and aired reruns until 2010/2011, and briefly in January 2017.
Chapelle's Show ended in 2006 and aired reruns until 2011, but has rerun regularly since 2016.
Futurama has more episodes than all of those shows so there's more time to rerun the show, and plus its been airing weekday afternoons with South Park for YEARS.
So anyways, Futurama probably won't be leaving Comedy Central anytime soon, by that I mean, The Simpsons will end and reruns will still be on Comedy Central.
Huh. What made them decide to air it in January?
I don't know, Comedy Central aired a LOT of its old animated series in January on late Saturday/Sunday nights.
