Futurama may be set for a second coming to network television.
Actor Billy West, the voice of Fry, Farnsworth, Zoidberg, Brannigan and more told the audience at the Anime Supercon in Florida recently that due to the strong sales of the Futurama DVD’s, Fox is considering a 6th season for a show they once canned due to poor ratings.
I tend to side with Merrick at Aint it Cool News, who writes:
I have mixed feelings about this. I love FUTURAMA & am horny for more, but Fox mistreated the series the first time around…made it damn near impossible to find/watch, then pulled it per lackluster ratings. If Fox will give FUTURAMA the attention/respect it deserves & air it at a consistent time? Cool. Otherwise…the stability of direct-to-DVD/Comedy Central would be vastly superior, I should think.
