It's Official: 'Futurama' To Make a Comeback

There's a new future ahead for the popular TV series 'Futurama' as Comedy Central has obtained rights to air new episodes of the show.

The cable network channel will start with at least 13 new episodes, which will start airing in 2008. Fans will be happy to hear that the original voice cast of Billy West, Katey Sagal and John DiMaggio will all be back.

"There is a deep and passionate fan base for this intelligent and very funny show that matches perfectly with our audience, and it is great that we can offer them not just the existing library but something they've never seen as well," senior vice president for programming at Comedy Central David Bernath said.

The Matt Groening animated series ran on Fox from 1999 to 2003. The animated series is set in the year 3000 and won three Emmy awards, but was cancelled because of poor ratings. However, the series became a cult favourite and racked up huge DVD sales, prompting renewed interest.
