Good news everyone?
There is some new for Futurama fans this week, but not necessarily in the form fans are hoping.
On Reddit co-creator David X. Cohen said, “There are no new TV episodes or movies in the pipeline at the moment… HOWEVER, here and now I promise a different avenue of exciting Futurama news later this summer, no kidding. Keep your expectations modest and you will be pleased, possibly. I am not allowed to say more or I will be lightly phasered.”
Cohen took to Reddit along with co-creator Matt Groening and voice actors Billy West (Fry) and John DiMaggio (Bender) to promote the new mobile app, Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow, a game which features new jokes, stories and scenes.
All of the people involved in making the show have remained vocal about their desire to produce more episodes, and the widespread outrage that followed the series’ removal from Netflix in the US suggests that its fanbase is as strong as ever.
