For the umpteenth time: “Good news, everyone!” Everyone’s favorite animated sitcom set one thousand years in the future is returning– yet again– for an all-new scripted radio drama episode to be broadcast on Chris Hardwick‘s “Nerdist” comedy podcast.
UPDATED 9/14 – LISTEN TO THE FULL EPISODE NOW:
“Futurama” originally ran from 1999 through 2003 on the FOX Network, before being revived for four direct-to-DVD feature-length movies in 2008, and then coming back once more as a TV series for a four-year run on Comedy Central. Earlier this year the cult hit was resurrected as a mobile game entitled “Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow,” and now we’ve got another reunion to look forward to.
