Stars return for Futurama revival

20 episode revival includes voice cast Billy West, Katey Sagal, Tress MacNeille and more.

Good news, everyone!

Futurama has been revived for 20 new episodes, with original cast members Billy West, Katey Sagal, Tress MacNeille, Maurice LaMarche, Lauren Tom, Phil LaMarr and David Herman all returning.

The revival hails from David X. Cohen and Matt Groening for Hulu. Update: Now confirmed as a Disney+ title in Australia.

John DiMaggio, who voiced Bender and several minor characters, is not yet attached, but producers are hopeful he will return.

DiMaggio has thanked fans on social media for messages, promising to keep them posted on his potential involvement.

“I’m thrilled to have another chance to think about the future… or really anything other than the present,” said Cohen.

“It’s a true honor to announce the triumphant return of Futurama one more time before we get canceled abruptly again,” added Groening.

Production will begin later this month with an expected 2023 premiere.

This marks the second time the show has been brought back since it originally launched in 1999.
