Futurama is Back!

This year, on the 10th of June, the first episode of Futurama season 6 will go to air :)! This will be the first official Futurama episode (excluding the feature length films) since 2003; 7 years (for those who can't count)! It's fittingly called "Rebirth", and will be the first of the 13 episodes in season 6, and then a season 7 is also planned - we'll be having a total 26 new episodes! The whole original voice-acting cast is back and Matt Groening and David X. Cohen are still heading the team and writing episodes!

Now, I've known about this for quite a while now - as I'm sure most of you have as well - but actually getting an official release date and episode title just makes it seem that much more real and make me, personally, that much more excited. So how about you? Are you excited about the television return of Futurama? Or are you worried that it may be a failure and forever tarnish your opinion of Futurama? Will the episodes live up to the old ones? And how did you think the feature length films fared against the classic episodes?

Opinions and speculation please.

    It's been cancelled again. :( Comedy Central decided not to renew Futurama. The seven episodes airing in June will be the final episodes of Futurama produced for Comedy Central.

    I hope if another network does pick Futurama up, they do so pretty quickly, because it seems like it takes the staff a while to get back in the groove after cancellation. The quality definitely picked up at the middle of season 6 and in the season 7 episodes we've seen, but the movies (season 5) and the beginning of season 6 were pretty uneven.
